Batch One: Mass Customized Wood Products Webcast

Posted: 05/14/2014 3:00PM

 

CNC Machining, BiesseBiesse America Mass customization, the latest frontier in wood products production, allows manufacturers to deliver a wide range of individually tailored products, but without a corresponding increase in production costs.

The secret is sophisticated machinery, and equally sophisticated software – able to interpret orders, track product, and monitor fulfillment - to deliver orders to those machines, which produce goods and services to meet individual customer needs, with near mass production efficiency.

The challenge is part management, and part technological: setting your plant operations free from traditional mass-production models. With single product output – batch one – there is no room for error, or time for physical makeready before a production run.
