DeRucci wanted to make the leap to smart manufacturing

DeRucci produces custom bedding in order to provide consumers with a better customer experience. Complete personalization means the company must contend with high diversity and variability of product demand. In order to respond more quickly to consumer customization needs and to keep up with market trends, DeRucci needed to increase production flexibility to improve product quality. Based on the company's strategic vision and the “Made in China 2025” program, DeRucci wanted to improve the entire process, from product development to manufacturing, through innovation-driven development and cutting technology.
