Manufacturing has taken a lot of forms over the years. It started with a single person or a team of people making an item by hand, and that process was applied to everything from homes, to chariots, to swords, and everything in between. At the turn of the 20th century, the first assembly line was introduced. Not long later, processes began to be mechanised and eventually, artificial intelligence even became a part of manufacturing. Now, all of these tactics are used in some way or another. This blog takes a look at all of those types of manufacturing, and it offers helpful advice related to outsourcing or improving in-house industrial and manufacturing processes.
