One of my passions has always been lean manufacturing.  Actually, not much has changed over the years.  The end result has always been “How can a high quality part be manufactured at a repeatable throughput and quality level?”  And “How can this be done in as few of steps as possible?”  I often look at this picture of my Great Grandfather, and Grandfather making brooms around the turn of the century and notice the assembly line they had complete with fixturing to make the job more repeatable. 

Of course we do not make brooms, but the same holds true.
