Abstract

Modular product families are a splendid strategy to offer variant products while maintaining a low internal variety. The paper highlights the use of visualisations of product structures and influencing factors in the development of modular products. A literature review demonstrates the notion of visualisations as tools in product development. In order to give insights into practice the results of an interview survey with 12 designers from industry are presented (further results of the study are presented on the DESIGN 2014 conference paper no. 295).
