You may find this fact astonishing, knowing that cars have been built since 1890’s.

Every instrument that is needed lies so that it can be reached out immediately. Instruments are even set out in such a way that a worker should make minimum movements to reach it. Because every tiny improvement concerning a working environment brings benefit for the whole production.
