WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO SHIP YARDS.

One of my workmen the other day made this remark to me: "I've worked in 14 different plants and I never saw two alike when it comes to checking-in," and the surprising thing is that he may work in 14 more and his remark will still hold good. There has probably been as much thought expended over this matter of "checking-in" as over any other single detail common to all plants, and the number of systems in use is a remarkable tribute to the diversity of human opinion and the ingenuity of the human brain.
