Henry Ford: Assembly Line

Join Henry & I, on this journey through the Assembly Line!

First things first, who's Henry Ford and what's an Assembly Line?

An Assembly Line. is when,"

a series of workers and machines in a factory by which a succession of identical items is progressively assembled."

It improved production time, especially in the car industry, drastically. Assembly lines made for a great decrease in time it took to build cars, and increased the number that could be made. But, who is Henry Ford? Henry Ford, by his last name, is the founder of the Ford Motor Company. Not only that, but he was the one who came up with the finalized idea of the assembly line. That my friends, is what I call genius. He had a lot of KNOWLEDGE to do all that.

What exactly was the full on purpose of the assembly line? is it still used today?

Well for starters, unlike Berkovich in little league, was to speed up the process of building of automobiles in the early 1900's. It required tons of workers who were willing to do the same thing, all day, every day. Which wasn't all that hard for the time. People needed work, and this is one of the best options. And, even today, the assembly hasn't changed all that much. Minus the amount of amount of human workers. Nowadays, we have robots to do the job for us. It makes it so much easier to assemble cars, in very little time. Plus, it influenced companies, other than the motor industry, to use assembly lines. The food industry, hygiene industry, soap and shampoo, etc.

Other examples of influence? Why should it be used today?

I'm glad you asked handsome stranger. According to boundless.com, " Automobile, film, radio, and chemical industries skyrocketed during the 1920s. Mass production made technology affordable to the middle class. During this time, a class of Americans emerged with surplus money and a desire to spend more, spurring the demand for consumer goods, including the automobile."
