The True Cost of Doing Business

Logistics, Distribution, and Breaking Down the Borders of Your Fulfillment Network

It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. As we all know, getting an engineering project to market from algorithm to design to production is not an easy task. Even though it seems like a strenuous process today, we have come a long way especially in the realm of logistics, distribution, and fulfillment. In this week’s Fish Fry, Mike Buseman (Avnet) and I discuss the changing world of logistics and distribution, how we can move fixed costs into variable costs, and how converged and hyper-converged solutions can alleviate some of those big pressures we all face when trying to get a product to market quickly. Also this week, we check out brushed motor theory and take a closer look at some brushed motor applications that don’t involve pillaging your parents’ old household appliances.
