The Black & Decker factory in Easton, Maryland, uses parallel, off-line assembly lines to produce multiple models in small, infrequent production runs. The University of Maryland and Black & Decker have implemented an Internet-based work instructions system that supports parallel, off-line assembly. Black & Decker personnel create and update easy-to-read paperless work instructions, and each assembly station automatically retrieves the correct paperless work instructions and displays them.
