Re-purposing A Vehicle Manufacturing Facility With Modern Technology

Picture a Ford manufacturing facility in the Detroit Michigan area. Now picture that factory being shut down because the jobs were outsourced. The factory has now been sitting dormant for decades, and the surrounding communities have been suffering because of the economic ripple effect that comes with a major loss of employment. People are starting to think about how that building can now be re-purposed for the same purpose of manufacturing vehicles again. The business and political climates have changed to the point where this is now a realistic possibility. The question is, how do you move forward with this?

Well, a couple of decades will have seen many technological changes in how vehicles are built. Whether we are talking about regular personal vehicles or the rapid acceleration in the need for self-driving vehicles, the landscape has changed. With it, so too has the training and education of people who make vehicles. They are a lot more computer dependent. So whatever machinery that was left behind when the facility was vacated, that old machinery has to be changed out with current machinery for the current manufacturing needs. Couple that with the work force that has been educated to keep up with these changes, and you all of sudden have a manufacturing facility that can see new life again. And with that, new life for the surrounding communities.
