    Here's something for the egg heads, nerds, information hounds and geeks on the forum...I included. I found an article which describes the software that is being used to assist in the design, engineering and manufacturing of the Model S. It may be a repost and I apologize for re-hashing...:rolleyes:

    Dimensional Control Systems

    It just goes to reinforce that building a car isn't simple.

    I found this other nugget about the desinging software on Business Wire:

    Tesla Motors Selects Dassault Systèmes’ V6 PLM Solution. Tesla is beginning its upgrade to V6 with implementation of the ENOVIA V6 collaboration solution. Improvements and predefined templates in the latest ENOVIA release have enabled a successful pilot of the core solutions in just over a month, paving the way for a successful production implementation. Phase two of the implementation will involve the launch of the DELMIA digital manufacturing solution in late 2010. Future phases will migrate Tesla’s product authoring solution from CATIA V5 to CATIA V6. Additionally, Tesla is using the CATIA ICEM solution for Class A surfacing, DELMIA Human for occupant ergonomics, plus solutions from Dassault Systèmes software partners.
