AbstractThis paper presents a manufacturing model that combines the advantages of mass manufacturing and mass customization. The model extends the constraint satisfaction search to a continuous domain to provide a generic solution for automatically solving design problems for various product families. The model consists of a configuration engine to effectively find a constraint satisfied solution, a product model to facilitate the configuration engine, a product modeling tool to generate product descriptions, and a web framework dealing with online presentation.
