Standardization in Service
IE manufacturing of equipment for the
Bell System was one of the earliest, and
is npw among the outstanding examples of the
standardization and quantity production
which are distinctive characteristics of Ameri
can industry. ' '
Quantity production for the nation-wide
Bell System makes it possible to put into
v every item of telephone equipment better
material and better workmanship,' at a lower
cost to the telephone user, than could other
wise be done. But the dominant advantage of
uniform manufacturing, under standard speci
fications, lies in the improvement of the service.
Every transmitter in the System is designed
to work in harmony with every receiver all
over the land and to co-ordinate with all the
complicated equipment and lines behind. All
can function at full efficiency for they are
designed and manufactured for that, purpose.
Standardization, not only of equipment but
of operating methods, is the only basis upon
which it would be possible adequately to meet
