Proposed merger[edit]

It has been proposed to merge Factory system into this article. Please add your thoughts to this discussionPhmoreno (talk) 15:22, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

I've added the {{merge from}} and {{merge to}} tags to both articles. Discussion should continue here. Si Trew (talk) 09:04, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
  • oppose - encyclopedia Britannica has a much more extensive article on the Factory system than it does factory. Factory system is an evolution from the older Domestic system and you can set up a factory system in your basement if you have the tools and workers. Factory is the building, location, power source, etc and the system is the theory and method. Alatari (talk) 08:44, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. We now effectively have two articles about factories and the mode of production that they enable. We can do with one. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 11:28, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
  • oppose - the factory system is a distinct topic, part of the evolution from putting-out system through the American system of manufacturing, and distinct from the building or site that is a factory. Whizz40 (talk) 20:59, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
I've removed the merge tempalte for the reasons discussed above. Whizz40 (talk) 06:22, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
