Abstract

This article is aimed to help teams that are involved in the development of modular products from scratch. Analysis reveals that a systematic approach to modular design is absent, although, different methods and tools to support modular product development are available on a case-by-case basis without generalization for further turnkey implementation. In general, these methods target a specific industry; most of them are aimed at big companies and require time-consuming adaptation. For these reasons, projects from scratch require significant time at the initial stage of product development to investigate various approaches and align them with project goals. To help teams to deal with the modular design from scratch and thus save time, we introduce a design technique based on setting the modular design guideline that enables the immediate launch of the development process, while applying specific modular design approaches in parallel. Through a case study, it has been demonstrated that the proposed modular design guideline methodology can provide the efficient approach to modular design and save time at the initial stage of development.
