Nowadays, the increased competition on the global markets pushes companies to face the trade-off between volume and variety. Customers simultaneously ask for huge quantities and very specific product requirements. New strategies are required to keep high the competitiveness.
This challenging context has lead Inkmaker to establish some ambitious objectives and envision the project MODULA. Inkmaker s.r.l is an Italian SME realizing dispensing systems for inks and paints. Through MODULA, Inkmaker wants to achieve the following strategic objectives: realization of the machines co-design; modules standardization; reduction of lead time. They all converge in a design and manufacturing standardization. The adopted solution is an online product configurator.
To develop the solution, a scientific approach has been applied: identification of the main stakeholders and definition of their requirements; analysis of the state of the art; feasibility analysis; technical implementation;. Future steps are represented by the integration of the solution with the company ERP and the extension to all the portfolio
