If it is true to say that the primary factor governing the arrangement for the production of a fuselage is the type of structural design chosen; it is no less a fact that a wing is far more amenable to re‐arrangement for production and allows the jig designer greater scope. Naturally, the relative ease with which the jigs can be built does depend largely upon the structure and upon the co‐operation between designer and engineer, but there is far more chance for the jig designer who is presented with a finished design and told to arrange it for production as it stands.
