The following example illustrates how production is driven by customer needs:
Customers can design their own appliances which incorporate their style, color, and function preferences. Based on the customized order, the interconnected factory set in motion its manufacturing process automatically, conveying the information to the production line of each process, module makers, and logistic carriers to schedule the equipment, materials, and modules for each production line. Each customized order has to be synchronized with the schedule of each production line. At the same time, customers can check the status of their customized appliances directly.
