Speed and consistency. The new material handling automation and software systems provide the Astra-CFX facility with the capability of consistently producing at least 200 assemblies an hour, meeting BMW's daily production quota. 

The facility is also able to ship a full trailer load of assemblies every 3-4 hours, meeting another key BMW requirement.

Reduction in Errors. The facility has been able to send every set of assemblies out in sequence as expected, preventing any charge backs from this type of error.
