On December 1st, the Center for Leading Innovation and Cooperation invited several companies from the regional textile industry to participate in a workshop on “Business models, configurators and customer interaction”. In cooperation with the project partners, results from the futureTEX Basis Project Mass Customization have been presented. The participants took the opportunity to discuss future challenges regarding business model requirements and the integration of the customer. In addition, many practical insights into the state of the art of configuration tools were given. The event was held at HHL’s SpinLab, a location that perfectly integrated with the textile industry background of the project.
