An article about robotic production at Tesla. "It's a glimpse into Musk's plans for factories of the future: almost fully automated, with robots that can build cars so fast that air resistance becomes a problem.":
Tesla employee explains why production hell is actually a good thing - Business Insider
Quote:
If Musk and Tesla succeed in this reimagining of the car factory, it will be the first new major innovation in manufacturing since Toyota created the famed Toyota Production System in the 1970s and 1980s. And it would add a level of irony if it were to happen at Tesla's Fremont factory, which was once jointly owned by Toyota and GM so that GM could learn the now vaunted "Toyota way."
Also that propulsive landing was 1/2 second out of synch to prevent radar cross-talk. Which makes it even more impressive in my opinion.
