Abstract

Whilst the fulfilment of customised production affects the whole product realisation chain involving product design, process design and supply chain design, our assessment of the literature observes comparatively little attention has been given to process design. Within this area, this paper considers the opportunity for custom fixture manufacture, combining the power of modularity with the technologies of Rapid Manufacturing. Several examples are presented illustrating significant improvements in quality, fixture cost and overall time to market can be achieved through this approach.
