Welcome to the forum @johnmcgrann.

Which Rivian model and spec did you order?

The whole "connected factory" approach was interesting to read about.

"That complexity is orchestrated by Rivian’s “connected factory” approach to manufacturing.

One example is on the chassis line. There are “no dumb shooter guns,” as Fields puts it. Instead, tool controllers monitor the torque and angle for every single bolt that goes into an R1 vehicle.

Other captured data includes the employee who’s “badged” into a workstation, and the down time, or equipment failures at that workstation, to name a few.

“All this information goes into a cloud that we can then monitor all factory analytics, from zone to zone, plant to plant, and the total plant operation,” Fields said."


Thanks for sharing! :)
