You can industrialize a lot of actions, but it has to accommodate the fact that it is each time a different “car” coming out of the supply chain! Yes, engineering teams are making a different “car” at each round, that is their job, duties and -hopefully- fun.
And that different “car” is deployed through the same delivery line! Can this really work? It does, sometimes it is rock’n’roll, but it does work. It is hard, but it works.
