If you're in the healthcare industry, or even if you're just a patient from time to time, the lack of efficiency in some areas of this industry may be as clear as day.

In the manufacturing industry, we all know production is king. Maximizing productivity is the focal point, and safety, quality, and supply chain/vendor management are all well-known components to ensure the lowest cost, and highest efficiency.

We've seen investments into the development of machine tools instead of manual tools. Subsequently, companies introduced products with interchangeable parts, which could be used across new and old devices. Interchangeable parts led to the popularization of the assembly line.
