Customers themselves can define the desired product (for example shape and dimensions of a table top), and the atypical item is then handed over to the production. Both bill of materials and technology are created in a specialized product for furniture configuration. By its nature, it is a case of piece production. Because of the deployment of Infor SyteLine, HON achieved significant shifts to improve the management of all key production processes.
