Flexible manufacturing systems for mass customisation manufacturing
by Guixiu Qiao, Roberto F. Lu, Charles McLean
International Journal of Mass Customisation (IJMASSC), Vol. 1, No. 2/3, 2006

Abstract: This paper presents innovative approaches in realising and exercising mass customisation in theoretical and practical applications. Strategies of generalised production line platform and modularisation are explored to support dynamic reconfigurations of mass customisation. NIST's XML-based Shop Data information integration specification is utilised to derive a data driven reconfigurable mass customisation modelling methodology. A simulation model of a Boeing aircraft major component assembly line is created and driven by a batch control file, which is generated from the XML-based Shop Data specification.
