Abstract [en]

Standardization is Organizing and showcasing a manufacturing firm’s product or potentially benefits abroad are confronted with the choice of whether to institutionalize or adjust their product variants which simply means “one size fits all” method (Lundeteg, 2012). As industrial revolution was in peak many manufacturing industries around the world moved from mass production to mass customization. As per then, customers need was to gain a desirable product even if the lead time was higher than of buying a common product which everyone has.Main aim of the study is to re implement mass production in a firm where mass customization was adopted decades ago. As there are two categories of customers supporting both customized production and mass production, they need to adopt an innovative way without losing both types of customers. This report consist of the ways standardized production was done in the case company without affecting both types of customers and by decreasing lead time which was their main problem. The report consist detailed description of methods adopted for analyzing and how standardized production is effectively incorporated with customized production. Report also consist of quantitative data and qualitative literature support for analyzing and creating simulation model.Case study was also aiming at production systems in the company to understand the productions in deeper manner and how the new system could be effectively implemented in current situation. New proposal for standardized production was done based on the detailed study of factory layout and the products were proposed after detailed analysis of the quantitative data. Study was mainly concentrated on quantitative sales data analysis as the production is done base on make to stock and the customization is just done in cutting section. Analysis and simulation model creation was done in excel as the internal documents were done in excel and complex operations also is possible in excel.
