DaimlerChrysler Corporation is implementing a new product development system that is reducing costs, improving quality, and getting new products to market faster, while strengthening the corporation's reputation as developer of affordable innovative automobiles. Elements of the system, known as the Chrysler Development System (CDS), are being phased in during the launch of the new Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country and Voyager minivans at the Windsor (Ontario) Assembly Plant. The first products to be fully developed under CDS, from concept to production, will be launched beginning in 2003.
