This video is a ‘factory tour’, showing the process of assembling BMW Series 3 vehicles.  It illustrates the extent to which robots have been incorporated in the production process, and the speed at which the line moves.   It also illustrates the role that workers have in the process, and how their tasks have been designed to place the least strain on their physical condition.

Although such videos are now commonplace, this is a fine example of the genre.
