Customised solutions can sometimes be useful when adapting a product or a system to specific requirements and needs. The disadvantage, however, is that it can be expensive, time-consuming and require specialist work if the customised equipment needs to be modified at a later date.
CUSTOMISED CAN BE IDEAL
Most of us are probably tempted by the idea of, at some point, starting with a blank sheet of white paper and create a solution entirely to one’s own head? And sometimes the needs of the vehicle owner are so specific – and perhaps unusual – that there is no more sensible solution than to create it yourself. A customised solution is tailored to a specific need and can thus be considered to be ideal. But this is not to say that it is necessarily the smartest choice.
A READY-MADE SOLUTION IS OFTEN THE OPTIMAL CHOICE
If the need really exists, a customised solution can certainly add something substantial, but there may be alternative solutions that have sufficient built-in flexibility to be able to adapt to the needs of the individual customer.
Ideally, it should be possible to use standard elements that are easy to fit, and which at the same time provide considerable possibilities for variation if the design is well thought out. If you can also benefit from the simpler management and the long production series with their lower costs, there is a lot to be gained.
It is often more probable that a ready-made solution is preferable.
