Abstract

For handling complexity in product family design modularization methods exist, but often in isolation from each other. This paper contributes to consolidation of applied methods, analysing them for data acquisition needs and information flows. The methods’ information flow is traced on an abstract level using multiple-domain matrices. This reveals the underlying scheme of each method, which enables comparison of different methods. By combining method schemes a common meta-model is extracted. Its evaluation indicates the core domains for modularization and the relations they are connected with.

Keywords: product family, modularization, multiple-domain matrix, product structure
