Manufacturers of household appliances in the United States are introducing an array of computerized technologies in the work of many of their factories in an effort to regain a lead eroded by international competition. On the basis of changes that have already taken place, experts predict a golden age for the consumer of better-designed and betterbuilt products.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST support the experts' claim that appliances produced by computerized technologies will be better built?

(A) Computerized inventory procedures ensure that parts are ordered in sufficient quantities and that production moves smoothly and consistently.
(B) Computer-directed machines carry out repetitive tasks with the result that errors due to human fatigue are eliminated.
(C) Computer-controlled ultrasound devices are better able to detect hidden flaws and defects that require repair than are human inspectors.
(D) The flow of heat used to weld parts together is more consistent when directed by computer programs and results in a more accurate and uniform weld.
(E) Computer-driven screwdrivers ensure that screws used in appliances will be consistently tight.

I think it's A because all the other options make the product better designed and better built.

While A only ensures that we have consistency which doesnt impact productivity
