If you haven’t worked in manufacturing anything, well, you just don’t know what you are bad mouthing.
Ford and any other company didn’t build factories first day in production. They started one car at a time.
Any company building anything has to start from the bottom up. Schematics, plans, scheduling, warehousing, shipping, receiving, stockroom, R&D, suppliers, buyers, and so on have to be set up so they then start to follow a pattern. It takes years for that to happen.
I was a production planner on RTPs. Rapid thermal processors. Even having all the blue prints and schematics, suppliers, etc, it would take a year to finish a project and then it would go to the field, sometimes to be scrapped.
That’s why I laughed at those expecting a car pretty soon.
