I dont know if anyone knows if anyone knows whether Tesla gets inventory on the "just in time" basis.
This term refers to car mfacturers getting deliveries "on the day" for the build.
I think a search will find Toyota for example work within minutes.
This has enormous savings attached but also a lot of risk.
I imagine Tesla has already bought some parts for YOUR car, it is already in gestation so to speak. Like rivets. Imagine if they ran out of rivets (again).
Or 2nd row folding seats that work.
Does anyone know how Tesla gets their inventory?
Has YOUR car already been conceived?
I was at a Camry factory which was producing in house 90 bumpers a day for 89 vehicles being produced. They were being injected and ejected within minutes of assembly on to a car.
