Abstract

Abstract Mass Customisation Manufacturing (MCM) attempts to deliver efficient manufacturing outputs, initiated by unique design input into a configurable product platform. In this paper, customers’ selection behaviour in terms of product configuration is characterised and metrics thereof used in presenting a new manufacturing flow control method. The novel setup scheduling and flow control method, termed Biased Decision Feedback (BDF), is tested in a simulation study of a custom fly fishing reel manufacturing facility. Also, BDF is shown to posses an operating point when the statistical behaviour of customers’ selections is stable.
