Factory
A FACTORY (previously MANUFACTORY) or MANUFACTURING PLANT is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another. Factories arose with the introduction of machinery during the Industrial Revolution
Industrial Revolution
when the capital and space requirements became too great for cottage industryor workshops. Early factories that contained small amounts of machinery, such as one or two spinning mules , and fewer than a dozen workers have been called "glorified workshops". Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse -like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities

Wheel
A WHEEL is a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axle bearing . The wheel is one of the key components of the wheel and axle which is one of the six simple machines . Wheels, in conjunction with axles, allow heavy objects to be moved easily facilitating movement or transportation while supporting a load, or performing labor in machines. Wheels are also used for other purposes, such as a ship\'s wheel , steering wheel , potter\'s wheel and flywheel . Common examples are found in transport applications. A wheel greatly reduces friction by facilitating motion by rolling together with the use of axles . In order for wheels to rotate, a moment needs to be applied to the wheel about its axis, either by way of gravity or by the application of another external force or torque .Using the wheel, Sumerians invented a contraption that spins clay as a potter shapes it into the desired object

Max Weber
MAXIMILIAN KARL EMIL "MAX" WEBER (German: ; 21 April 1864 – 14 June 1920) was a German sociologist , philosopher, jurist, political economist and the husband of Marianne Schnitger . His ideas profoundly influenced social theory and social research . Weber is often cited, with Émile Durkheim and Karl Marx , as among the three founders of sociology. Weber was a key proponent of methodological antipositivism , arguing for the study of social action through interpretive (rather than purely empiricist ) means, based on understanding the purpose and meaning that individuals attach to their own actions. Unlike Durkheim, he did not believe in monocausality and rather proposed that for any outcome there can be multiple causes
