Note with image: 'One of the most dramatic points in the automobile assembly process at the new General Motors plant in Fremont, Calif., is the 'body drop' station on the final assembly line. Here, car bodies are lowered -- according to a precise schedule -- onto their matching chassis which have been assembled in another area of the plant. Linking together all production departments throughout the two-million square foot facility, an electronic 'broadcasting' system assures that the correct parts and accessories for a given car will arrive at the proper place at exactly the right time.'
