  1. TL:DR
    this is about the final assembly which is currently done 90% manually.

    Also the “Journalist” here failed horribly trying to make this ultra short piece about Tesla somehow and trying to make it long enough to matter.

    ​

    >The key to automating more of its assembly line will be moving to a module-based strategy, Schmickartz said, condensing 50 parts into one through techniques like die casting to produce front-end, back-end and roof modules.
    The casting technique was popularised by Tesla as an alternative to the more labour-intensive method of assembling multiple stamped metal panels with crumple zones to absorb energy during a crash.

    How is this the key to automation in the **final assembly?**
    this is replacing a fully automated process with another fully automated process.
