    I think you can access the article with a free account. I don’t have a subscription, and I can read the full article.

    "One important takeaway, which we believe is differentiating at Tesla, is that one of the first steps completed in Assembly is to fit an onboard computer/chip. Every part subsequently fitted to the vehicle is recorded by the vehicle’s computer.

    As a result, the vehicle has a full record of every part fitted, when it was fitted, and various other measures of importance during the fitting process (eg torque applied when it comes to fitting parts during assembly). This provides Tesla with a feedback loop for continuous improvement."


    That is fascinating and very, very clever.

    Good article. Little more facts and believable than the Linette Lopez garbage from business insider. Lots of FUD these days.
