Modular products and organisations

– a winning formula and a pivotal element in your business strategy

We help companies succeed – with modularisation

Is your business dealing with high levels of complexity and long lead times? Are you using more resources on R&D but feel that there is still a lack of innovation? Is your production standardised to the extent that you feel you cannot accommodate all of the customers’ demands in an ever-changing market? Or are you only doing one-off projects and want to have faster time to market? If you can recognise some of these challenges at your company, you could very well benefit from modularisation.

What is modularisation?

Modularisation is about designing your products based on modules that can be reused and configured to customers’ needs and at the same time reduce the internal complexity and cost. All of this while still providing your customers with a wide range of opportunities.

Modularisation has its core in product development, but it is not limited to it. Today, modularisation is just as much for digital products as well as an organisational setup and a governance structure.

Working with Implement on modularisation, we consider your situation holistically and make sure that we account for everything as you undergo a modular transformation. We call this the modular journey.

Why should companies introduce modularisation?

There are three main reasonings for why companies should apply modularisation, and there are multiple benefits to be achieved if you do it right.

Customer and sales impact

The benefits you can achieve by having a customer and sales impact focus:

  • Increased flexibility to meet and handle new requirements through easy customisations
  • Increased perceived value of products by raising quality and reduction of variant cost
  • Increased ability and ease of upgrading and extension of product life and value
Development impact

The benefits you can achieve by having a development impact focus:

  • Introducing significantly more products per year with higher hit rate
  • Staying efficient in product development when the organisation is growing
  • Increasing competitiveness of products relative to competitors and user needs
Operations impact

The benefits you can achieve by having an operations impact focus:

  • Improving quality and reducing complexity through reuse of proven solutions
  • Better scalability – meaning lower unit costs and better capacity flexibility
  • Increasing supply responsiveness and flexibility to react to customer orders
