Process Control and Logistics Management for Mass Customization Manufacturing
Guixiu Qiao, R F. Lu, Charles R. McLean
The emphasis on increasing product variety and individualization has created a strong demand for a new strategy of Mass Customization Manufacturing (MCM). A competitive and flexible manufacturing system must be developed to respond to small batches of customer demand. In this paper, problems of highly flexible process-control and logistics-management methodologies are addressed to meet MCM needs. The integration of manufacturing information with suppliers is developed. This integrated system information relies on open interfaces for data exchange with neutral data formats ? the NIST Shop Data Specification, adopting XML. Additionally, process - resource planning, and component push - pull logistics are also discussed.
