In the late-1700s there was an innovation which would change the world forever. This innovation came from the French Engineer & Lieutenant General Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval. He was charged with reforming the french military’s artillery. What he came up with was a standardized set of cannons and cannonballs. See up until that point cannons were not standardized, for each cannon, you made cannonballs to fit that specific cannon's barrel. Using Jean-Baptiste’s specifications, the French could freely produce cannon balls by simply staying within the designed tolerance. The concept of interchangeability was introduced to the world, and it became an integral part of the industrial revolution.
