Hans has recently written a book on Mass Customisation which has been published in 2015 by Apress Publishers in New York. The book delves into the world of Mass Customisation and Industry 4.0, and the opportunities provided by new and future technologies, how things could be done and what could be improved. The book also talks about the future of Mass Customisation starting in the Cloud.
Hans’s vision has created his company to offer careful analysis and design of all administrative and production processes involved. They have developed an agile strategy for the implementation of Mass Customisation projects that incorporates all the necessary steps in every iteration. This makes adaption to a changing environment, easy.
Very early on Hans understood the importance of user interfaces which are easy to understand and use and leave the user in control. Likewise, he understood and was an early adopter to the idea of Agile software development – that is, that developing technology is a fluid process rather than a set project, with the goal posts continually shifting, as the customer’s business changes, their technology and markets as well as computer and software technology. Agile development involves the users in regular client feedback (at least every few weeks) and the developers are challenged to fix ‘real time’ issues and adapt to the client’s needs.
The book was translated into Chinese a well and published by China Machine Press.
