This study investigates the impact of the product architecture on constraints to agile automotive product development and establishes agile modularization enablers. Derived from basic agile values and principles. a model has been generated to integrate agile development requirements into product modularization. Matching the generated characteristics with published agile constraints of physicality and scale allowed a first indirect validation of the model. This analysis showed an overall constraints limiting effect and therefore proved the connection between product architecture and agile product development. Additionally. the model was conceptually transferred into an adapted modularization method to allow for both technical and organizational drivers in product architecture.
