Modularization strategies should be planned along the life cycle of a product. Modular Function Deployment (MFD) is one of the best known methods, taking into account different stages of the product’s life cycle. However, it is not directly linked to particularities of different development projects. We propose an adaptation of MFD that takes into account different levels of complexity and novelty of each project. The adapted method allows to choose the set of stages and tools that best fits different combinations of complexity and novelty levels in a company’s project.
