White Paper: The Modular Product Approach

A guide to multidisciplinary success

modular design white paper

A modular product approach is an established way of improving the calculating and realizing the value of investment goods. Yet modular product initiatives often fail to live up to expectations because of poor coordination between engineering disciplines.

To deliver on the promise of a modular product architecture strategy, companies need to create a number of prerequisites in organization, process and infrastructure.

The white paper takes a look at the resulting tasks form an electronic, electrical and fluid engineering perspective and presents a pragmatic solution approach.


  • When technical complexity blurs the boundaries between engineering disciplines
  • Complex modules call for an interdisciplinary engineering organization – but which discipline should take the lead?
  • Functional characterization avoids ambiguity
  • Why electronic, electrical and fluid engineering must become an equal partner in an end-to-end product development process
