Discrete Manufacturers: Special Considerations for Robotics and Demand-Driven Supply Chain Solutions
Misalignment with suppliers is often caused by existing replenishment policies such as min/max order policy.
Many of the OEMs were showing how their smart products and processes were driving new business models like servitization (manufacturing firms developing the capabilities to provide services and solutions that supplement their traditional product offerings) and new "power-by-the-hour" offerings.
The self-driving vehicle (SDV) using an autonomous guidance system breaks free of magnetic strips and pre-programmed routes.

The number of unique parts required is high - some 200 parts in the past year or so - but the volume in which each part is needed is low, often only one or two.
Recent servo motors are equipped with the encoder of 20 bits (1,048,576 steps) which has a very fine resolution. Because of this, errors due to the encoder installation accuracy have a huge effect on stopping accuracy.
2016, through mid-June, shows 56 startups received $427.5 million; and that 20 acquisitions have happened thus far totaling $4.53 bn (from the 11 reporting amounts involved).
All these companies are logistics and material handling vendors and times are changing in logistics and fulfillment
In recent years, there have been many demands for equipment with high productivity to have a system that retains positioning information, even after the main power supply is turned off.
Industrial robotics is changing the U.S. manufacturing industry portrait.
