About Henry Ford:
The Model T & The Assembly Line
Ford & Charles Sorenson worked on the Model T for a year, building it and testing it on rough roads. Sorenson described the Model T as "... a car that anyone could afford to buy, which anyone could drive anywhere, and which almost anyone could keep in repair." These qualities made the Model T very popular and within the next 18 years, Ford' company sold 15 million Model T's and during this time Ford had also came up with a less expensive way to manufacture cars - The Assembly Line.
The Assembly Line revolutionized industry with mass production. On the Assembly Line, each worker performed an assigned task over and over again at a certain stage in the production of the automobile. By doing this, Ford was able to manufacture more automobiles for less expense.
