Henry Ford's Model T and the Assembly Line
In the midst of this explorative and innovative era, Henry Ford developed the Model T, a creation that would change the world. The Model T began selling in 1915 for 440$ and by 1925 a record of 9109 cars were made each day, the lowest price being 290$. By 1927 15 million cars were made, thats only 12 years of production! Most of the manufacturing was done in the "Motor City", Detroit. Soon after, the Assembly Line was created as well as more factories. An Assembly Line is essentially a process were employers each have a small job assigned that they become very good at which quickens production. These two factors increased the output of the cars immensly. Henry Ford hoped that by the end of the decade there would be "A car in every garage" as well as more gas stations, parking lots, service shops, and roads.
