In : International Journal of Production Research 51.2 (2013). P. 524--541. ISSN : 0020-7543. DOI : 10.1080/00207543.2011.653449.
    In mass customisation, defining concurrently the configured product and the planning of the associated production process is a key issue in the customer/supplier relationship. Nevertheless, few studies propose supporting the decision-maker during the resolution of this significant problem. After studying the decision-maker's needs and problem characterisation (modelling and scale aspects), we propose in this paper a two-step approach with the aid of some tools. The first step allows the customer or internal requirements to be captured interactively with a constraint-based approach. However, this step does not lead to one single solution, e. g. there are many uninstantiated remaining decision variables. In this paper, we suggest adding an original optimisation step to complete this task. Thus, the contribution of the study is twofold: first, methodologically to define a new two-step approach that meets industrial needs; and second, to provide adapted tools especially for the optimisation step. The optimisation step, using a multi-criteria constrained evolutionary algorithm, allows the user to select their own cost/cycle time compromise among a set of Pareto optimised solutions. A conventional evolutionary algorithm is adapted and modified, with the inclusion of filtering processing, in order to avoid generating invalid solutions. Experimentations are described, and a comparison is made with a branch-and-bound approach that outlines the interest in the propositions.
