Modular product families are now broadly applied in industry. There is, however, no concept in place yet to effectively manage the interfaces within a modular product family. That is why module sheets are introduced to explicitly capture all the information that is necessary to effectively maintain a modular product family's interfaces. The module sheets consists of three sections: Module characterization, module interfaces, and module configuration. The overall concept and utility of the module sheets are shown up. It is described how the module sheets have been implemented and particularized at three industrial partners.
