Abstract: A focal point of mass customisation production systems (a significant aspect of the fourth industrial revolution) is the implementation of reconfigurable jigs and fixtures. Traditional methods for the treatment of conventional fixtures are inadequate for those of the reconfigurable type. This paper describes the implementation of an on-demand fixture manufacturing cell that would reside in a mass customisation production system. The focus, in particular, is on the behaviour and optimisation of this cell in relation to the production system. To achieve this, a multi-stage optimisation procedure was developed that involves cluster analysis and a mixed inter linear programming (MILP) model to minimise total idle time (and thus makespan) in the system.
