DISTRIBUTION OF INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTATION FOR THE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES OF THE HIGH-VARIETY PRODUCTS – CASE STUDY

In the last years the researches in engineering have moved towards customer-oriented manufacturing. The individual customer's require-ments are very important for the company's activities. It results high-variety production. High-variety production like mass customization is facing the challenge of effective variety management. Applying methods of mass customization to the empirical process can improve product development process efficiency and reduce time and cost. The manufactu-ring process requires documentation of the production. Very often, the documentation process and the time of its formation is limited. The article includes an analysis of the modern manufacturing systems and answering the question: how is it possible to produce without having a docume-ntation in paper form. The presented solution is used during the high-variety products manufactured in the SMEs. The method was validated in the conditions of best practice high-variety production.
