From Jarred Land we have this post on Reduser on the state of manufacturing play:
6 months ago Jim brought in the best Manufacturing God arguably on the planet… Kent.
He brought Oakley to a level where China and Japan would literally get on a plane and fly to the O to learn efficiency in manufacturing.
His legend has been realized.. in just 6 months Kent and his team have hit production numbers we couldn’t even of dreamed a year ago.. and he is just getting started.
Here is a peak at just a single row in the process… a small slice of what goes on around the clock in our California manufacturing plant.
It really is magical to watch these guys and girls building the tools we all depend on. Someday we will need to open it up for tours.
And from Jim:
This team can assemble a camera in 13 minutes consistently.
