On the other side of the spectrum is standardization. By standardizing products into a few easy to produce, readily available options, cost of materials can be better controlled, the cost of design and engineering can be eliminated after the initial prototypes are finalized, and cost of production and delivery time are more predictable and consistent.
The problem we see, is that both of these production systems put the customer at a disadvantage. Either the customer must spend more, wait longer and take a risk on a fully custom solution, or compromise desired performance specs for a low-cost, off-the-shelf solution that provides the closest match. Neither option is ideal. But there is a better way.
