With a view to global growth and improved competitiveness, a structured process model for the development of modular product and production platforms was to be piloted and implemented. This included comprehensive requirements management (entire product portfolio, trends, value chain etc.) as well as holistic development for the use of commonalities at product and value chain level.

Objective

Objective

  • Introduction of a structured process model for the development of modular product and production architectures including complexity cost assessment
  • Piloting based on two global product portfolios

Approach

Approach

  • Structured process model for the develop-ment of modular product and production platforms incl. strategic positioning, priority-zation of future customer needs, specifica-tion definition, complexity cost model, solution and module concepts, design for manufacturing, definition of product and production architectures / module interfaces

Results

Results

  • Successful introduction of a structured process model for the development of global, modular product and production architectures including complexity cost evaluation for cost-optimized variant decision-making
  • Pilot testing on two product portfolios
