Isn't this some of the footage they used in the BTG Live event?

It's impressive if you ignore things like this... or is there something I'm missing?

So whilst actual vehicles are potentially delayed a month, there's no reason that this system should be also?

I aasume it was planned to go live in time for the first vehicles to be delivered to customers, so is this going to get rolled out first?

I wouldn't mind playing around in it whilst I wait for my delayed vehicle.

The CAD-IT application is probably what any software is upon the first rollout: incomplete and buggy.

Since INEOS hasn't delivered a single car to a customer so far, they don't have a reason to release it yet: they're likely happy to have a little more time to finalize and test their app.

It would be great if the Parts/Repair Application was stored offline in a harddrive integrated in the vehicle's display panel with periodic OTA updates, together with the Owners' User Manual.

Absolutly.

Being in nowhere in Daressalam or in Taka-Tuka-Land and having to find your spare parts and repair instructions online can get a bit difficult. The bitrate of bush-drums is low ...

I didn't think the software itself was new. As far as I've read Aston Martin have been using it for a period of time.

Even if it's not fully populated, a group of reservation holders beta testing it or Ineos getting the benefits of a soft roll out might be a thing.

Believe me, even a mature software for a new customer is something new, because they usually want additional features, e.g. (in this example) cross-references, that weren't there before. Or an integrated ordering system or a different database structure behind it due to a different hierarchical assembly organization and so on. Let alone DRM barriers to protect unauthorized copying and printing.

The other thing is the population with data as you mentioned. There will probably be a lot of open ends pointing to another subassembly and things like that. I'd be surprised if they actually got that done since the Grenadier is still a moving target.

But I agree that a beta-testing group made of "non-biased" users is a good idea.
