The creation of the assembly line by Henry Ford at his Highland Park plant, introduced on December 1,revolutionized the automobile industry and the concept of manufacturing worldwide. Henry Ford was not a newcomer to the business of automobile manufacturing.
Inhe officially opened the Ford Motor Company and five years later released the first Model T. Although the Model T was the ninth automobile model Ford created, it would be the first model which would achieve wide popularity.
Henry Ford had a goal of making automobiles for the multitudes. The Model T was his answer to that dream; he wanted them to be both sturdy and cheap. By the end of production, however, the cars would be available in a wide variety of colors and with a wide variety of custom bodies. That was cheap, but still not cheap enough for the masses. Ford needed to find a way to cut down the price even further.
Inwith the aim of increasing manufacturing capacity for the Model T, Ford built a new plant in Highland Park, Michigan. He created a building that would be easily expanded as new methods of production were incorporated. Ford Farbröder Och Tanter - Gunilla Bergström - Bill Och Hemliga Bolla with Frederick Taylor, creator of scientific management, to examine the most efficient modes of production.
Ford had previously observed the assembly line concept in slaughterhouses in the Midwest and was also inspired by the conveyor belt system that was common in many grain warehouses in that Dirty Social Net Club - HUH - Dazzling Damned. He wished to incorporate these ideas into the information Taylor suggested to implement a new system in his own factory.
One of the first innovations in production that Ford implemented was the installation of gravity slides that facilitated the movement of parts from one work area to the next. Within the next three years, additional innovative techniques were incorporated and, on December 1,the first large-scale assembly line was officially in working order.
The moving assembly line appeared to the onlooker to be an endless contraption of chains and links that allowed Model T parts to swim through the sea of the assembly process.
In total, the manufacturing of the car could be broken down into 84 steps. The key to the process, however, was having interchangeable parts. Unlike other cars of the time, every Model T produced on Ford's line used the exact same valves, gas tanks, tires, etc. Parts were created in mass quantities and then brought directly to the workers who were trained to work at that specific assembly station. The chassis of the car was pulled down Off The Assembly Line - Save The Robot - Battle Of The Mind foot line by a chain conveyor and then workers applied their assigned parts to the chassis.
Other workers brought additional parts to the assemblers to keep them stocked; this reduced the amount of time workers spent away from their stations to retrieve parts.
The assembly line significantly decreased the assembly time per vehicle and increased the profit margin. As time passed, Ford used assembly lines more flexibly than he is generally given credit for. He used multiple parallel lines in a start-stop mode to adjust output to large demand fluctuations.
He also used sub-systems which optimized extraction, transportation, production, assembly, distribution, and sales supply chain systems.
Sweet Evening Breeze - Jim Reeves - The Great Jim Reeves his most useful and neglected innovation was the development of a way to mechanize production and yet customize the configuration of each Model T as it rolled off the block. Model T production had a core platform, a chassis consisting of engine, pedals, switches, suspensions, wheels, transmission, gas tank, steering wheel, lights, etc.
This platform was continually being improved. But the body of the car could be any one of several types of vehicles: auto, truck, racer, woody wagon, snowmobile, milk wagon, police wagon, ambulance, etc.
At peak, there were eleven basic model bodies, with 5, custom gadgets that were manufactured by external companies that could be selected by the customers. The immediate impact of the assembly line was revolutionary. The use of interchangeable parts allowed for continuous workflow and more time on task by laborers.
Worker specialization resulted in less waste and a higher quality of the end product. Sheer production of the Model T dramatically increased. The production time for a single car dropped from over 12 hours to just 93 minutes due to the introduction of the assembly line.
These concepts allowed Ford to increase his profit margin and lower the cost of the vehicle to consumers. The workday was cut from nine hours to Off The Assembly Line - Save The Robot - Battle Of The Mind hours so that the concept of the three-shift workday could be implemented with greater ease. By the end of the decade, the Model T had truly become the automobile for the masses that Ford had envisioned.
The assembly line is the primary mode of manufacturing in the industry today. Automobiles, food, toys, furniture, and many more items pass down assembly lines worldwide before landing in our homes and on our tables. While the average consumer does not think of this fact often, this year-old Off The Assembly Line - Save The Robot - Battle Of The Mind by a That Shit - Various - Best World DJs - Russia (MP3) manufacturer in Michigan changed the way we live and work forever.
