Making production a tangible experience (Smart Services World I technology programme)

STOREFACTORY offers customers the opportunity to design and produce their own customised products in a store. This project will be realised by means of a production facility in Berlin. With the help of personal experiences in local shops, the project also aims to gather more knowledge about the general acceptance on the part of customers of an individualized shopping process that is characterised by the Industry 4.0.
