This paper provides a framework for modular product planning in construction. It integrates tools to support quality and flexibility in design. A case study was carried out on a chilled water modular plant-room. The Quality Functional Deployment (QFD) tool was effective at capturing and analysing the requirements from multiple disciplines. Modularisation was supported by the Dependency Structure Matrix (DSM), Modular Identification Matrix (MIM) and Generational Variance Indexes (GVI). The framework's novelty lies in tools integration to achieve mass-customisation for construction.
