From the American System to Mass Production, 1800-1932: The Development of Manufacturing Technology in the United States

In his richly illustrated 'From the yank procedure of Mass construction, David Hounshell explores the improvement of the 'American method' of producing within the part century ahead of the Civil battle and the transition of the program into the 'mass construction' of the twentieth century.

Previous writers at the American method have implied or argued at once that the technical difficulties of mass creation were solved by means of antebellum palms makers, Hounshell argues, notwithstanding, drawing upon the large company and production documents of best American organisations. .. together with Singer production, McCormick Harvesting equipment Co. , Brown & percentage production, Pope production, and Ford Motor Com. .. that the diffusion of palms construction know-how used to be neither as quick nor as delicate as has been assumed. either the expression 'mass creation' and the know-how was once that lay at the back of it have been advancements of the 20 th C, attributable largely to the Ford Motor Co.

Hounshell explores the real function of people within the diffusion and improvement of creation expertise and the relevant position of promoting method within the luck of chosen American manufactures. whereas Ford Motor corporation was once the seebed of the meeting line revolution, common vehicles initiated the recent period of annual version switch. With the recent business plan, the expertise of 'the changeover' grew to become of paramount significance. Hounshell chronicles how painfully Ford realized this lesson with the switch from the version T to the version A after which to the V-8 in 1932.

Furthermore, manufacturing research plays a decisive role in combining the long-term horizon in technology trajectories with the short-term need of firms to innovate successfully. This requires a good timing of research activities to have solutions and tools ready for industrial adoption. Considering these functions of manufacturing research, the ManVis messages on technology can be discussed using the presented concept of the combined science-technology cycle on innovation presented in ManVis Report No.

2 WHICH TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE RELEVANT FOR EUROPEAN MANUFACTURING? From the presented findings on technology and their dynamics in manufacturing, some messages can be derived from ManVis: • Micro electromechanical devices, smart materials, products using nano-coatings – in this timing order – are representing long-term developments in a new type of products with a disruptive character for markets. These product challenges offer an opportunity for strengthening competitiveness, which can only be exploited if appropriate manufacturing equipment is available and allowing the use of the technologies in new products.

The PLM market is one of the most increasing ICT markets, composed of a galaxy of solutionproviders, coming from three main backgrounds: (i) vendors of the digital engineering world, which sell many kinds of Computer Aided (CAx) tools, (ii) vendors of the ERP world, which commercialise broad integrated suites, (iii) vendors which provide a series of web-based solutions for virtual collaborative environments. As a result of these diverse ICT backgrounds and capabilities, the market PLM suites can enable diverse degrees of collaboration among many actors and users along the lifecycle of a product, from design to production, and from distribution to the end-of-life (Table 1).
