Robotics OEMs and robotic systems providers are increasingly partnering with organizations that offer design, engineering and manufacturing services to support the development and production of their robotic products. And for good reason. Manufacturing services providers play a critical role in the procurement, fabrication and assembly of the robotic solutions, but also have unique insight into the design, engineering and production of robotics. This insight can be applied to many design and engineering elements of the robotic solution. Overall, the services that can be provided range from the short term and tactical, to long term development engagements requiring both deep domain expertise as well as end-to-end solutions expertise. In this session, attendees will learn about the wide variety of service offerings that are available for creating and manufacturing robotics technologies and products, as well as provider selection criteria, business models and service agreement options. Case studies will be used to highlight critical points.
