Externally, the modern production facility bears little relationship to its product nor to the specific manufacturing processes involved.

With industrialization of the world economy has come a standard for facilities design - to meet the needs of changing market trends and to fit the requirements of standardized building products.

This wasn't always the case and may not be indicative of future design and construction for manufacturing and assembly facilities.
