Production Orientation to Customer Relations
Brief History of the Model TAfter 20 years of experimentation, Henry Ford finally saw the fruits of his labour in October of 1908 with the Model T. This was the vehicle he had wanted to build since his first Model A in 1903
In October of 1913, mass production of the automobile began. Ford had previously organized workers and components to enhance the production of the Model T, but the moving assembly line quickly improved the speed of chassis assembly from
12 hours and 8 minutes to
1 hour and 33 minutes.
In 1914 Ford produced 308,162 cars, which was more than all other auto manufacturers combined.
It was also in 1914 that the Model T, in the interest of streamlining the production process, was no longer available in black, red, blue, green or grey; it was now available in "any colour so long as it is black."
Mass production did allow for flexibility in the price tag. Henry Ford introduced the Model T at $850 for the Touring Car, but by October of 1924, he was able to offer the Runabout for as low as $260. Few things other than the price ever changed on the Model T
