Tim needs a new laundry machine to be installed within a time window of one hour. ‘This service saves me from taking a full day from work’ (special service)
Tim orders gifts months ahead for his family living overseas to be dropped at their door step on Christmas Eve ‘Why carry it all myself on the plane’. (order combination)
Tim goes snowboarding with friends next winter and orders a new board to be delivered at the still unknown destination. ‘They can look it up later in my iPhone’. (social integration)
Tim activates automatic refill for his 3D printer to ensure he can always produce his latest creative design work. ‘I love mixing science and arts anytime’. (internet of things)

ERP, WMS and TMS
ERP systems are fine for commercial order management, production, inventory, and financial management within a company but miss the entities, logic and integration to orchestrate supply chains.
WMS systems are great in managing receiving, putaway, storage, picking and packing within warehouses, but do not have the model, rules and interfaces for dynamic supply chain orchestration.
