Engineer-To-Order product development often entails project-based development of highly customized products with a production of low volumes. Unique designs increases the interest for re-use to keep costs down and profits high. Companies are employing efforts such as standardization to achieve this. Benefits can be signifcant if the implementation strategy is correct. This paper presents an approach for assesssing this standardization implementation strategy. The work is founded in an industry case study with the same objective and from this work a generic approach is described.
