In 1906, Henry came up with a new type of car. For a year, Ford and his general superintendent, Charles Sorenson, worked on the Model T. He tested the car many times before releasing it to the public in 1908.
The Model T was an all new and improved design for automobiles at that time. But it's creation also pioneered the assembly line which was a less expensive way to manufacture things. The assembly line each gave a person its purpose to build the car which sped up production. This was a mass production of goods which decreased manufacturing costs and the products were sold more cheaply.
