The idea of integrating users into a co-design process as part of a mass customization strategy is a promising approach for companies being forced to react to the growing individualization of demand. Compared to the rather huge amount of literature on manufacturing and information systems for mass customization, only little research discusses the role of(More)
Collaboration in research continuously gains importance. Recent developments in online collaboration technology, namely social research network sites (SRNS), specifically aim to support research collaboration. SRNS allow researchers to present themselves, to network, to communicate, and to collaborate. Acceptance of this technology by researchers has(More)
The paper sets a framework for value generation in mass customization based e-business models. Traditionally, mass customization was argued to be possible due to the advances of modern manufacturing technology. The paper discusses why mass customization is rather an application of electronic commerce than a manufacturing approach. Not flexible manufacturing(More)
