There are several elements that can transform technology into a competitive advantage among the most important benefits of Industry 4.0.  One of these is the ability to introduce the product to the market as quickly as possible, and the other is a customized design production that can be a disadvantage for mass production principles. Customized design products are in high demand in the consumption culture of our age. Many individuals of the society are directed to buy special products with the effect of individuality to come to the fore and with the urge to feel special. Considering these thoughts, it is an inconvenience job to make custom production in companies which are constructed for mass production. Considering that the price / benefit relationship which can be affected by time, capacity, productivity, quality, workload etc. is properly managed, it will require effort to capture value-added products. Capability of manufacturing mass production products and Customized design products on the same production line can be provided with reviewing and differentiating the processes in the production process from an innovative perspective. In this context; as the benefit of industry 4.0, both mass production and Customized design production capabilities can be loaded into production processes with the development of information technology and automation technologies. In this study, Critical innovation projects which can transform traditional production line to a customized production line are discussed.  These Projects are carried out at ISTIKBAL that the leader company of Tukey in furniture sector.
