Aldous Huxley:Brave New World ( : ) </p> <ul><li>The Assembly Line( ) </li></ul> <ul><li>The innovation sequence leading to the moving assembly line went like this:</li></ul> <ul><li>From 1910 , when Henry Ford opened the 60-acre Highland Park plant, the company had a policy of replacing machines producing parts as quickly as the tool room could develop those specialized, single purpose machines that so greatly improved the production rates for parts. The Ford tool room was a major center for innovation in machining and tooling. They built the machines that made the plant go. The new specialized machines for producing parts were positioned strategically according to 'what' they produced in order to produce parts as close to the assembly area as possible.By 1914 , the tool room had built and installed 15,000 of its special purpose machines. They were installed in a line parallel to the chassis assembly area. Workers on the production machines dropped their parts into bins lined up between their own work area and the assembly area. </li></ul> <ul><li>The parts runners carried parts and sub-assemblies from the centrally located parts bins to the assembly areas, but they had trouble keeping up with the pace set by either the parts producers or the assemblers unless they were just swarming all over the place. When there were too many runners, the parts really didn't seem to get delivered any faster--there was just more confusion.</li></ul> <p>8. Aldous Huxley:Brave New World ( : ) </p> <ul><li>The Assembly Line( ) </li></ul> <ul><li>Clarence Avery , the scientific management specialist Ford hired in1912 , suggested installingconveyor belts ( )to take parts from the production areas to the assembly areas more quickly. That cut out the need for so many runners and made things flow better. Next (by early1913 ) the bottleneck showed up in key sub assemblies, particularly the fly-wheel magneto C&amp;S talk about, but also with engines and transmissions. All the other parts could be produced faster and delivered to the assembly areas more quickly than these key components. Moreover, the assemblers still had an easy time. They could work very comfortably at the rates determined by the delivery of the key sub assemblies.</li></ul> <p>9. Aldous Huxley:Brave New World ( : ) </p> <ul><li>The Assembly Line( ) </li></ul> <ul><li>By mid1913 , the production people set up moving assembly lines for the magnetos, the engines, and the transmissions. As C&amp;S indicate, the assembly time for the magnetos (total labor hour inputs / no. of magnetos produced) dropped from 20 minutes to 5 minutes as a result. Now the magneto line, the engine line, and the transmission line could turn out their assemblies as fast as all the other parts people, but the assembly teams on the chassis line couldn't deal with all the parts pouring into the assembly areas on the conveyor belts.</li></ul> <p>10. Aldous Huxley:Brave New World ( : ) </p> <ul><li>The Assembly Line( ) </li></ul> <ul><li>By December 1913, the plant people had set up the experiment withwinches and ropes ( )pulling the chassis down a line where the assemblers stood in one place with their parts piles. They put on their wheels, or fenders, or whatever, as each chassis moved past them. In other words, the innovation reversed the old process in which the workers moved in teams down the line receiving their parts at each chassis as they arrived. One of the primary features of the new process is that all work--or as much as possible--was arranged so workers used their tools at waist height--a clear innovation thatAveryintroduced on the basis of the Gilbreth motion studies.</li></ul> <p>11. Aldous Huxley:Brave New World ( : ) </p> <ul><li>The Assembly Line( ) </li></ul> <ul><li>The1914improvements C&amp;S mention, which dropped assembly time to 90 minutes, resulted from the fact that the rope and winch system was really only used for one month. It proved so successful that inJanuary 1914the Ford production engineersinstalled thecontinuous chainto keep the chassis line moving . Working out the 'bugs'dropped the time very rapidlyfrom the6 hrsusing the winches--a dramatic drop from the17 hr.labor input in the old moving team system.</li></ul> <p>12.

He is unusually short for an Alpha; an accident with alcohol in Bernard's blood-surrogate before his decanting has left himslightly stunted . Bernard's independence of mind stems more from hisinferiority-complexand depressive nature than any depth of philosophical conviction. </li></ul> <p>15.

He was born and reared on theSavage Reservation ("Malpais")afterLinda was unwittingly left behind by her errant lover . John the Savage isan outsider both onthe Reservation - where the ignorant natives still practise marriage, natural birth, family life and religion - and the ostensibly civilised Brave New World: a totalitarian welfare-state based on principles of stability and happiness, albeit happiness of a shallow and insipid nature. The Savage has read nothing butThe Complete Works of William Shakespeare .</li></ul> <p>16.

Lenina is a popular and promiscuousvaccination-workerat the Hatchery and Conditioning Centre. Somewhat quirky - she normally dates only one person at a time - Lenina is basically happy and well-conditioned. Sheuses soma to suppress unwelcome emotions . Lenina has a date with Bernard, to whom she feels ambivalently attracted; and she goes to the Reservation with him. On returning with relief to civilisation, she tries and fails to seduce John the Savage. The Savage loves and desires Lenina; but owing to his quixotic nature, he is repelled by her forwardness and the prospect of pre-marital sex. So he casts her aside as an " impudent strumpet ".</li></ul> <p>17.
