ford’s process & product innovation

When I was a school-boy I watched TV-series about Henry Ford with my father. He was really enjoying it, specially when they show how he made the new manufacturing system or process – the same one on which my mum was working for many years. Brilliant process innovation in the beginning of 20th century.

But the thing which was most impresing to us in this days – it was mid of 80’s/last century – was that he made the car that many can buy. I’m not sure how to classify this innovation – it fits the best to product innovation.

However, Ford model “T” was cheap, easy to drive and easy & cheap to repair –> what an innovation!
