Two suggestions for the game:
A ‘smart stockpile’ setting. Have the stockpile decide what to stock automatically, based the assembly/manufacturing stations in closest proximity.
Have an ‘Upgrade All’ button for the assembly stations, that buys all the currently globally unlocked upgrades for that station type. When installing a new line, it’s tedious to have to click on all the upgrade buttons for each station in the line.
Not suggesting removal of the features as the are now, just these additions.
