I just wanted to mention, without casting any shade on Tesla, a man who was instrumental in the rise of Japanese manufacturing after the second world war. His name was W Edwards Deming. He was an American statistician sent to Japan after the second world war to teach the Japanese about quality. He was largely ignored in the West but is revered in Japan. His ideas I think could be helpful to Tesla at a time when Tesla is struggling to establish itself as a high volume automobile manufacturer.
