Abstract

Facing the buyers’ market, many industries are now shifting from mass production to mass customization.  Product configuration aiming to configure customized products from smaller parts or modules according to the individual needs of customers is a key enabling technology for mass customization paradigm.  Product Configuration Design (PCD) may satisfy the requirements of individual customers with near mass-production efficiency. The advent of the Internet has revolutionized the way companies advertise, develop and distribute products. Firms can now customize their advertising messages and products to the particular characteristics and needs of customers. Customers themselves can create their own products. Therefore PCD system based on web will be the best way to solve this problem. In this paper, we conclude the concept and meaning of PCD, put forward the PCD architecture. And we put emphasis upon the implementation of PCD. Then we advance our three relational models in different phases to represent the product configuration knowledge, and offer the mode of PCD based on web to relate three relational models. At the end we explore a Web-based water faucet PCD (WFPCD) to prove our theory.
