Very well thought out product solution that addresses logistic considerations in addition to design considerations.  This should help to boost sales for this product line.

I agree and what I found really interesting was the effect of just one part - fasteners - could have on production. I spent my engineering career designing and building test sets for in-house use so the logistics of mass production never entered the equation - each test set was never duplicated more than  2-3 times. I enjoyed reading this article and learning about a well-thought out design for a fastener for OEMs and even more, getting a peek into how challenging the logistics can be for mass production.
