Henry Ford is famous for having used an assembly line to put together his Model Ts, even if he wasn’t the first automaker to use a production line. That was likely Ranson Olds, but Ford perfected the process. Before the assembly line, FoMoCo used a process called “sequential assembly” and before that, station assembly, where the chassis was hauled around to various work stations where parts were added. Even with station assembly, Ford and his managers were able to drastically reduce the amount of labor needed to assemble a car.
