Abstract: Many authors have written about mass customisation and its features and categories. Literature on the implementation of mass customisation, and in particular the supporting information technology, is scant. This paper attempts to fill this gap by focusing on this subject. We determine the key functional requirements and identify possible implementations to show the existence of enabling information technologies for mass customisation.

Keywords: mass customisation; information technology; IT support.
