Are you curious how this functions in practice? Lets take a look at some examples. A short description of the OEM and the supplier will be provided. Then the Build to Requirements question will be formulated, and then we discuss the parts that went great and the parts that can be improved.
The OEM develops metrology machinery. The supplier develops, produces and assembles mechatronical systems and modules.
