FALCON (Feedback mechanisms Across the Lifecycle for Customes-driven Optimization of iNnovative product-service design) funded by European Union H2020
FALCON aims to develop an integrated information technology system able to track every step of the lifecycle of the product, using high technology devices on an open platform. All the data automatically collected during the production are compared to the ones collected in several ways, with innovative dynamics, from the customers. So the producer can optimize its product according to the market’s trends, acting easily and rapidly on each parameter of the production. In the textile field, the system allows the manufacturer to meet more quickly and more efficiently the seasonal fashion trends; and above all it helps during the sampling, when, despite the very large number of possible options, only a very small number of combinations will be chosen.
