In 1913, Henry Ford improved upon the assembly line concept by using moving platforms of a conveyor system, enabling his workers to reduce the time it took to build a car from more than 12 hours to just two hours and 30 minutes. Although it’s been over a century since Ford got the assembly line rolling, we still use his invention to this day to streamline business operations. If you’re interested in using assembly line processes to improve your business’s efficiency, here are three reasons to start outsourcing assembly work.
As a small business owner, you may not have the time or resources to hire and train new employees. By outsourcing your assembly services to a trusted third party, your business will benefit from the assembly skills of an experienced workforce, without the extra hassle of hiring and training. Working with an outsourcing company that uses assembly line processes can optimize your workflow, allowing for quicker turnaround times and better accuracy in assembling your products. The time you save by outsourcing assembly services can allow you and your team to focus on your core competencies, ultimately improving your business.
With assembly lines, assembly work takes less time and involves less people. Instead of trying to locate parts and assemble products in a large storage warehouse, assembly lines are organized to optimize efficiency and limit the number of people involved. This allows you to spend less time overseeing the details of your manufacturing process and more time focusing on improving your business.
In an assembly line, each employee works on a product at the same speed and in a specific order. This limits the number of mistakes and ensures products are assembled correctly. By reducing errors and maximizing efficiency, you can rest assured that your products are in great hands.
