Markets today have become dynamic and demand rapid product changes, product variety, and customized
products. In order to operate under and taking advantages of such conditions requires, amongst
other aspects, manufacturing processes robust to product changes - a contradiction to traditional manufacturing
systems developed as dedicated engineer-to-order solutions, tailored to production of a specific
product or a limited product assortment. In response, modular manufacturing concepts are evolving, which
are aimed at possessing the needed responsiveness and aimed at being the manufacturing paradigm of
Mass Customization (MC). Research focus has been on the basic principles and enabling technologies,
while modular architectures and system design have received less attention. A potential to fill these gaps
by applying selected design theories and methods of MC have been seen. Based on a communality
analysis between these theories/methods and the modular manufacturing approach, this paper discusses
and evaluates the potentials and appoint possible obstacles of application.
