For nearly a century, assembly lines have made it possible to build more cars faster.
Now, a dealership in Pennsylvania is using an assembly line in the service department to fix them faster.
The conveyor-driven line is 150 feet long and has five stations, so as many as five vehicles can be on the line at any time.
The line is manned by seven technicians, who perform most routine maintenance and repair procedures.
On computer screens at each station, technicians can see detailed instructions about what work needs to be done, so different types of repairs or maintenance can be done simultaneously, saving time and money and making customers happier.
The drive for speed in the service department shouldnt surprise you -- because its a Honda dealership owned by Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal.
