In November 1990, Chrysler Corporation announced plans to initiate three shift or nearly continuous (21-hours –per-day) production at a number of its plants. Explain why Chrysler’s decision might have been prompted by movements in its wage costs or capital costs, or both. Why would Chrysler have instituted this production change for its most popular (and profitable) vehicles, its minivans and Jeep Cherokee? What risks might such a plan pose?
