European commercial vehicle manufacturers generally do not produce heavy type vehicles in very large unit numbers of one individual type, but rather they standardize parts, subassemblies, and assemblies that are used in many or all types. Thus they manufacture large numbers of identical individual parts that are adaptable to the various types of vehicles. This permits variety in small production runs. The method is described by detailed examples taken from the production records of the Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz AG Werk Ulm.
