A COMPREHENSIVE VIEW ON BENEFITS FROM PRODUCT MODULARIZATION
In most product modularization cases the companies have only weak initial estimations about both the type and the magnitude of the potential benefits. This indicates a need for more precise perceptions of the challenges of managing product modularization efforts. This paper deals with three challenges according to the outset as described initially. First, we will unfold a company neutral empirical based way of how to understand and manage product modularization. Secondly, we will classify and conceptualize the various product modularization benefits. Thirdly, we will evaluate a number of individual industrial product modularization cases according to the conceptualized model of benefits.
