    Abstract

    When following mass customization (MC) principles, manufacturing companies have to consider several aspects. Complexity is thereby seen as a major challenge to be handled. Especially for ETO companies the movement towards MC is much more complex, as products are not standardized, processes are seldom automated and little control over the customer portfolio is obtained. Based on case studies, this research proposes a new way of effectively and efficiently implementing MC strategies. It closely investigates deviations between contribution margins and between pre- and post-calculations of operational measures. The results show the negative impact of high deviations on the cor-responding performance.
