Manufacturing- Where Advances Are Made

May, 2013 by

The manufacturing industry has evolved considerably. New products and features are being offered all the time. Many of these new offerings are advancing the construction and maintenance industry.

Inventor Eli Whitney may be most remembered for his invention of the cotton gin. And while this is a signficant development, he also influenced the American economy with his development of a brand new manufacturing method. This new technique involved the use of interchangeable parts which was a totally new concept. Eli’s gun factory, established in the late 1790’s, was the first American factory to create parts that were so accurately made that the parts of one gun would fit any other gun being manufactured in the same factory. Eli Whitney taught unskilled workers how to re-create the one part they worked on. This was the foundation for modern mass productions.

Today this type of production is normal. Mouldings Mission Viejo CA can create a mold of a part that will allow duplication. Manufacturing production has made huge advances since the concept of interchangeable parts was introduced. Breakthroughs continued to advance factory work and spread into other sectors of production. Experimentation began leading to large advances in efficiency and leads to major gains in other areas of society. Advanced manufacturing today generally leads to the cutting edge of research and development. Mouldings Mission Viejo CA are included in this manufacturing industry. Factory output per worker is increasing at a steady pace. Manufacturers keep getting better and doing more work with fewer people. Manufactures totals about one tenth of the total U.S. economy but they produce nearly seven-tenths of the nation’s research and development according to recent studies. Production and innovation are completely linked.

Manufacturing innovations will lead to new industries, which will support more jobs in other areas including those in factories. Moulding Services Mission Viejo CA may very well be included in those advances. More jobs means a more stable economy for everyone involved and that is a side benefit to the advances in technology and research that can be gained from this industry. Manufacturing may be seen as an antiquated form of production but that misconception will not stop the industry from moving forward.
