Machine shop at Highland Park

    Newer Older

    Ford's Highland Park Automobile Plant was the site of the first mass production moving assembly line. Mass production was the focus for organization of the entire plant.

    Ford recognized that true mass production involved synchronizing workers, materials, and machinery so that parts flowed smoothly through the factory.

      Can you imagine the noise?

      I borrowed your photo to illustrate a blog post regarding Ford's big solar installation at one of their assembly plants.

      Here's a link to your photo in situ:
