I wonder about the efficiency. When seeing bucket brigades in movies, covering open ground I can't imagine this being more efficient than a bunch of people running with buckets, both speed and capacity/calorie wise.
In narrow spaces this might be different.

I wonder about the word "stationary" in the lead sentence. When you have a sufficient number of people involved that they can all remain stationary, that's a pretty classic image of a bucket brigade. But based on the sole reference and even the photo, the bucket brigade continues to work if the participants must cover some distance in order to transfer work items from their predecessor to their successor. In fact, some of the theoretical benefits of bucket brigades as self-organizing systems depend on this movement as a feature of their optimizing abilities. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 02:34, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
