REMPLANET at ICE 2010

Two presentations about works performed within REMPLANET project took place at ICE 2010 (International Conference on Concurrent Enterprising). ICE conference was held this year in Lugano (21st – 23rd June, 2010). These presentations were oriented to show the advances and goals achieved in the project.

One of these presentations was related to the research performed in the Work Package 2 and it was presented  by Juan Carlos Beitialarrangoitia from IKERLAN.

Title

Toolkits for developing adapt-to-order strategies in mass customization scenarios. A case study

Presenter

Juan Carlos Beitialarrangoitia, IKERLAN

Description

Mass customization is a middle ground in-between two extremes strategies; mass production (mass producers), and pure customization (craft manufacturers). This paper focuses on the knowledge stair path, very much related with SMEs evolving from a craft manufacturer origin towards an industrialized manufacturer of customized products. This evolution implies in practice the development and implementation of product and process rationalization methods, as well as decision support management procedures and toolkits to automate involved task in order to achieve efficient production of customized goods. The paper presents an overview of these basics, based on an applied research developed by IKERLAN-IK4 for a coach maker that aimed to evolve from being a local pure customizer to becoming a global mass customizer.

Target audience

Academics and practitioners in the area of mass customised manufacturing.

 

The other presentation was related to the works performed in the Work Package 3. This presentation performed by Dong Li from the University of Liverpool was entitled: Strategic Design of Resilient Supply Network. The session had around 20 People.

Title

Strategic Design of Resilient Supply Network

Presenter

Dong Li, University of Liverpool

Description

The research is set up to develop a framework for establishing clear linkages between manufacturing strategies with operational capabilities to respond to dynamic customer requirements in the mass customised manufacturing context.

The presented research at this conference demonstrates a framework of supply network configurations by which network structures are adapted to fit with the mass customisation characteristics. The research integrates research findings in the literature for classification of supply network structures, roles of supply chain partners, features of supply chain partner relationships and features of demands into a framework presentation of operational arrangements of supply processes according to customer needs and given manufacturing strategies.

Target audience

Academics and practitioners in the area of mass customised manufacturing.
