Cars move fast on assembly line

When cars were first built they were put together by small groups of workers and took weeks or even months to complete.

When cars were first built they were put together by small groups of workers and took weeks or even months to complete.

At the beginning of the 20th century Henry Ford and other car makers introduced the assembly line, where each worker worked on only one part of the car. Soon a car could be built in a day and a half.

Improvements continued until by 1916 a car could be built in as little as 90 minutes.

Most plants today turn out more than 50 cars an hour and the fastest turn out more than 100. -
