Abstract

An increasing demand to provide customised products creates challenges for manufacturing organisations. This poses a need to understand the characteristics required for manufacturing systems to handle customisation. In this study, 3D printing technology is assessed as an enabler for customisation. Additionally, the requirements of manufacturing systems with respect to configuration and control co-ordination are explored. A demonstrator is implemented to integrate 3D printing with conventional manufacturing, using an agent based distributed control system that co-ordinates the customisation of products and the order management.
