Well if you want to be technically correct no he didn't invent it, ..... however I stated that Henry Ford "established" the assembly line and this was correct as far as the automotive industry is concerned, and that was the subject being discussed. There were crude assembly lines that had been implemented in other industries earlier (that's where he got the idea) but when it comes right down to it, Henry Ford is the one credited with "introducing and establishing" the first successful assembly line to the automotive industry........ At least according to all the history books.
