Increased product variety, shorter product life cycles and smaller production batches are market conditions faced by manufacturers in both discrete and process industries. Consequently, attention has been given to complexity management techniques, such as product platforms and product modularity. Nevertheless, literature examples of product platforms are almost exclusively provided for discrete products, indicating a lacking body of knowledge on the subject for process industrial products. This study, therefore, applies existing methods for platform-based development in the process industry, which have previously only been demonstrated for discrete products. The methodology used in this paper is Modular Function Deployment developed by Erixon in the 1990s and is applied on a product group in a Danish company in the process industry. The evidence presented suggests that there may be value in investigating the applicability of existing methods for designing product platforms in the process industry, and that these methods may prove a starting ground for further development of methods tailored to this industry.
