Improvements in the Manufacturing Industry Versus Health Care Industry

As health care looks at continuous improvement (as done in manufacturing), one of the most prominent questions that has arisen is, "Can the   

 principles that worked in manufacturing really transfer over to health care? Taking care of a patient is not like building a car on an assembly line. Can standardized processes really work in a setting that focuses on humans and their needs?"

Write a paper of 1,000–1,200 words that takes a position on this argument. Justify the rationale for your position.

This assignment uses a grading rubric (See below). Please review the rubric prior to beginning to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment. Thanks.
