My understanding of the 25.7 hours calculation is that one would take the total number of hours worked (for all production employees) and divide it by the total number of vehicles built. This calculation would take into account many people working on the line at the same time. Right??

you also wrote: "...you are not recognizing the labor outised of the actual assembly process."

Actually, I noted this fact in my original post: "Assuming that the average UAW assembler makes $40/hour (including benefits), that's $1028/vehicle (25.7 hours times $40/hour) – Note that this is direct labor only and does not include overhead or indirect labor (i.e. foreman, management, engineering, HR)."
