The head of Tesla Elon Musk in an interview with CBS said that the company were relying too much on automation, and it was a “big mistake”. Because of this, the company does not have time to collect the required number of electric cars.
According to the Mask, Tesla need more people, because full automation only slows down the workflow. The company introduced a lot of conveyor belts and systems, but they were unable to adjust to the new cars, as they had to be reconfigured.
The company is now partially freed from the Assembly of strips, hiring a large number of new employees.
