**************************************************************** 

The Joint Conference of IMCM’07 and PETO’07 will be held at Hamburg
University of Technology (TUHH), Germany by 21-22 June, 2007. Both
prestigious conferences have already cooperated in 2006 in order to drive
forward the research on mass customization and to close the gap between
theory and practice. The 2007 international conference will be co-organized
by the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Technical University of
Denmark, University Klagenfurt, and Instituto de Empresa Business School.

The Joint conference strives for advancing research on mass customization
through providing the scientific community and practitioners with a
platform, organized on a regular basis, in order to exchange ideas with
respect to the new advancements taking place in this area of research. Mass
customization, as a new business paradigm, trying to reconcile the
principles of craft customization and mass production aims to provide
customers with individualized products while achieving high cost efficiency
in operations. However, the operational implementation of mass customization
reveals serious challenges on management and operational systems, which must
be mitigated adequately. Therefore, practitioners and re­searchers working
in this field are invited to submit papers, in which they present original
works and innovative ideas in mass customization. This can refer to
theoretical concepts, information and managerial tools as well as best
practices. All the papers will be published within the conference
proceedings in the form of a hard copy. The selection of the best papers
will additionally appear in a book by Springer.

 

Theme and Objectives

It is well-know that the design phase determines 70-80% of the costs that
incur during the product lifecycle. Mass customization is especially
sensitive to the outcome of the design stage and product architecture
because of the high variety induced in this environment. A poor design
drastically increases the costs of manufacturing and related operations. To
maintain an efficient cost position, customer needs should not be mapped
into single products but into a family of products, from which many variants
can be derived. In this context, the product architecture determines the
extent of the solution space and degree of customization to be offered to
the customer. Therefore, innovations in terms of product architecture and
design are necessary, so as to serve customers optimally. On the other hand,
there is a very close interaction between product and process design.
Processes should be designed in such a way that mass customization achieves
high performance with respect to costs, delivery times and quality. Mass
customization is generally more than a mere “fine tuning” of existing
operational capabilities, regardless of the current position of the
manufacturing firm, be it mass production or custom manufacturing. Instead,
major changes in process capabilities and design are required. This may call
for radical configurations and redesigns of the complete operations
structure within the plant. The application of mass customization principles
can also be applied in service operations. Especially in this area, there is
a high requirement for research with the objective to develop and validate
methods and techniques for the design and implementation of highly
innovative service products and processes. Thus, to tackle these important
topics, IMCM’07+PETO’07 are seeking for best practices and original research
papers, which address the issues of design, control and modeling of products
and processes in mass customization.  

 

Topics

Due to the complex and interdisciplinary disposition of these conferences,
we expect contributions from Business Administration & Economics,
Engineering, Computer Science, Psychology, Natural Sciences, as well as
cross-disciplinary contributions from practitioners. Ongoing or completed
research as well as papers with a main focus on practice and case studies
are welcome   
We welcome abstracts/papers addressing any topic within the broad area of
Mass Customization, e.g.:

*   Adaptive supply chains
*   Custom order control in MC manufacturing
*   Customer and supplier integration
*   Customer-Relationship-Management
*   Customization of logistic processes
*   Design and implementation of product configuration systems
*   Design of a product architecture based on platforms and modules
*   Design sales and engineering processes
*   Implementation of configurators in practice
*   Products and processes in mass customization service operations 
*   Modeling a product assortment
*   Modular sourcing and the impacts of modular products on the supply chain
*   Open Innovation
*   Organization effects of configurators
*   Personalization and advisory systems
*   Placement of the decoupling point
*   Product family management
*   Modular product architectures
*   Links between mass customization modes and modular design
*   Production and Logistic systems complexity
*   Production planning and control
*   Variety management and costs of variety 

 

Submission of Abstracts

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research results/best
practices for consideration in IMCM’07 & PETO’07.

Abstracts for papers should describe the nature and relevance of the
problems, the research method­ology, and work-in-progress or final research
results. Abstracts must not exceed 800 words and should be in MS.Word and
PDF format. The font type for body text should be ‘Arial’ size 11 while the
title size 12 with ‘BOLD UPPER CASE’. Abstracts for Papers should include
three to four keywords and all authors’ contact information. The official
conference language is English. Guidelines for final paper preparation are
published under the rubric "Author Guidelines" in the menu.

Please submit the abstracts to the following Email addresses:
