by Joachim Warschat, Mehmet Kurumluoglu, Rita Nostdal
International Journal of Mass Customisation (IJMASSC), Vol. 1, No. 2/3, 2006

Abstract: The transformation from mass-produced to mass-customised goods is challenging. Such a radical change in the product nature forces a revision of the processes and supporting Information Technology (IT) systems within an 'Extended Mass Customising Enterprise'. Based on the processes for marketing, sales, design, production and distribution, an IT architecture in connection with all required IT systems and their specifications will be presented. Finally, a case study including the composition of standard business software tools to support the above-mentioned processes of an 'Extended Mass Customising Enterprise' will be presented.
