OSE Milestones Map
Summary as of 2020
Newest on top.
- Extreme Manufacturing - one day builds of machines from scratch with swarms
- Module-Based Design - formulating the practice of breaking down technology into modular components for rapid parallel build, using erector-set, lego-set like construction for mechanical, precision machining, and power electronic areas
