After the set containing over 600 parts is completely assembled, Curtis Mathes spends additional time and money in a 24 hour test and adjustment period. This takes place in a room which is large enough to contain an entire day's production. During this test, the performance of each set is compared to all the others by three different shifts of technicians. When each set passes these tests to the satisfaction of the Chief Engineer, his staff, and the Plant Manager, then, and only then, is it passed on to the next stage.
