"While an axis is in motion, the EMC sends commands for current position. We call this commanded position. It is where the axis is supposed to be. Whenever a drive receives a velocity command it takes a bit for it to get up to that velocity and move to the commanded position. The difference between commanded and actual is following error. Commanded and actual position ought to be the same for an ideal machine. Inertia and such get in the way and add to following error."
