Major HBR cases concerns on a whole industry, a whole organization or some part of organization; profitable or non-profitable organizations. To make a detailed case analysis, student should follow these steps:
When the company was known as Gerlinger Motor Car Works, their first two full-chassis vehicles were school buses based on the Gersix truck chassis. InKenworth developed a chassis specifically for school and transit bus operators, known as the BU. The new model became so popular in the Pacific Northwest that production rose from 99 units in and units into units by By that time, the predominant number of BU models produced were sent to school bus body builders, and were built for use in school districts throughout the Seattle and Puget Sound area of Washington State.
Known as the KHC Kenworth - Heiser - Citythe passenger bus was developed by Kenworth engineers as a stock demo vehicle to help aid a glum sales picture, and to jumpstart the local economy.

At a time of mild economic recovery, the KHC22 proved to be very popular and sparked a renewed interest in Kenworth buses. Production of Kenworth buses continued throughout the s and into the early s, and during this time Kenworth was manufacturing bus chassis for body builders such as Wentworth and Irwin later renamed Wentwinand Heiser.
Heiser, long an often chosen body for school buses bearing Kenworth chassis, would later be purchased by Pacific Car and Foundry Company in Kenworth changed its production line early inreflecting a desire to remain "in tune" with market forces.
The conventional bus chassis, which had become poor sellers, were dropped altogether, and Kenworth focused its designs on more transit or "coach-type" buses with engines being located either underfloor or at the back of the bus. By this time, Kenworth was a major force in transit bus production, and nearly every major transit company in the Pacific Northwest were running Kenworth buses.
Seattle Municipal Railway purchased several new model s to replace the previous model H30s, which were powered by a Hall-Scott engine underfloor and had bodies built by the Pacific Car and Foundry Company. This was possible because the early effects of the war forced the amalgamation of several smaller, more regional operators into larger, territorial ones.
These conditions meant more bus orders for Kenworth, only there were fewer buyers. Bremerton Transit purchased several buses in to accommodate the increase in ridership due to the preparations for the war itself.
In the face of these conditions, Kenworth still maintained production at about 40 units annually. Inthe Seattle Municipal Railway purchased 30 buses in a single order, assisting Kenworth in breaking a production record. With low volume production, Kenworth was more than willing to build special order coaches.
When wartime ensued, Kenworth found itself once again focusing its efforts towards war production, producing troop transports and a number of military variations of their commercial truck line.
Inthe passing of Kenworth president Philip G. Johnson meant that the major stockholders, the widows of Johnson, and Kenworth founders Kent and Worthington - could sell their controlling shares and stake of the company.
It also saw an opportunity to hire former military truck and aircraft workers, and began a major push of four primary postwar models set to be relaunched in The postwar Kenworth buses were part of a small group that included small intercity or interurban buses, dubbed the model K; a trolley coach known as the model E; a city transit bus known as the model N; and a model W - an intercity bus.
The choice of model designations derived from the first four letters of the name KENWorth.
Later on, a one-door transit bus dubbed the Model O and a prototype school bus dubbed the model T,  which was the early forerunner of nearly model CT and LR buses produced by Kenworth from to The differences were their length, side window design, and the choices of available engines.Kenworth is a global manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty Class 8 trucks with offices based in Kirkland, Washington, a suburb of Seattle, Washington.
