What is an assembly line?

Assembly line

Popularised in manufacturing, the principle of an assembly line is where each worker is assigned a repeatable task, and where the process moves to the worker who performs another task until the product is completed. A way to produce mass goods quickly, workers don’t have to be human; robotic workers can make up an assembly line. Common examples of assembly lines include the assembly of complex products like automobiles or transportation equipment, household appliances, and electronic goods.
