Abstract

Mass customisation aims to deliver customised products with near-mass production efficiency. To simultaneously achieve customisation and efficiency, mass customisation requires collaborative engineering efforts between customers and manufacturers, who usually have different preferences concerning customisation. Collaborative engineering offers new methodologies and tools to address some of the inherent conflicts in mass customisation; reciprocally, mass customisation offers a realistic and promising test bed for developing collaborative engineering theories and technologies. This paper explores the synergies between these two fields of study, sketches out the scenarios of applying collaborative engineering in mass customisation, and points out some directions for future research.
