Understanding Personalised Products Workflow

Most workflow or production management systems have been designed for mass production rather than mass customisation. The diagram below provides an overview of the key workflow options for manufacturing personalised or customised products available in our Order Management Systems.

To make a range of personalised products cost effectively you often need several different workflows for different printers or decoration techniques. Gateway OMS is one of the only workflow systems designed only of mass customisation

There are several really important elements to workflow for customised products

  1. Orders are likely to come many different sources or channels
  2. There are going to be a high volume of small orders so it is critical to automate as much as possible
  3. Integration between different systems is critical to to achieve the required automation
  4. Different decoration methods may need different approaches
  5. Print output may need to be post processed, batched or sent to RIP software
