Graduate students and faculty of the Drake University MPA and MBA programs visited the unique "Gläserne Manufaktur" (transparent factory) located in the city center of Dresden, Germany. Parts are shipped to the factory using light rail so as to mask any image of a traditional manufacturing facility. This creates a factory within a residential and light retail environment unique to that of any other facility in Europe.
The factory is made of glass and metal and almost completely transparent. Inside, the "Transparent Factory" sets new standards as a service center in which the production procedure is presented as an attraction. Through individual service, customers are given the opportunity to observe the production of their vehicle at close range. In this way, the emotional bonds between customer and brand are strengthened.
Learners also toured the factory and took in other sites in the historic City.
