Abstract

Modular product design is recognised as a successful approach to efficiently fulfil today's market requirements. Erixon [6] and several later publications have proposed drivers for modularising products, yet to the best of the authors' knowledge, none have attempted to unify these contributions into a coherent and comprehensive overview. Based on a review of the literature, this study has identified, analysed, and synthesised module drivers into an extensive set of module drivers. Taking outset in the value chain concept, this study identified 68 individual module drivers grouped into 29 module driver categories spanning 6 value chain steps.
