Leanification of the engineering process for customized road safety products
MetadataShow full item record
Increasing need for customization and documentation but with deficits in a systematic product configuration strategy can result in repeated problem-solving and non-value added engineering. This is especially challenging for SMEs where resources are limited. To remain competitive, they need to gather efficient ways of providing engineer-to-order products. This paper presents a case study of the implementation of a customizable product platform combined with a web-based interface in an industrial SME for road safety products as an opportunity to increase customer value and reduce waste.
