Title:
Simultaneous modularization and platform identification of product family variants 
Abstract:
The modularization of product architectures is one approach to minimize product complexity by decomposing complex systems into quasi autonomous modules. Furthermore, under the consideration of more than one product or variant, standardized product platform elements can be defined in order to facilitate the reduction of complexity within a product family. These modules can be seen as units, whereby each one provides a unique function necessary for the product to operate as desired. Moreover, the...    »
