WHAT IS OUR STRATEGY?

The modularization approach can improve the performance and competitiveness of Nordic companies, but currently the general level of competencies and expertise is very low. Modularization isn´t widespread and only a limited number of companies are working with it. The fact is that we are losing competitiveness to other countries such as Germany. That is why we want to spread the word of modularization and increase the industry’s awareness of this approach.

Modularization as a strategy covers a complete value chain in industrial companies. End-to-end covering all functions in a company.

  • Market: Configuration of products enabling end-user customization
  • Product: Creation of architecture enabling more commercial variants with less items
  • Production: Simplification of manufacturing and supply chain enabling automation

Modularization is therefore;

  • A companywide approach across the entire value chain
  • Penetrating the markets with highly configured products
  • Rapid product development
  • Cost effective and rapid responding production system
  • Reducing complexity in the value chain

The ability to reach many different customers with precise offerings fast, and at the same time reduce complexity in the value chain, is a highly competitive approach.

The approach follows these three steps:

  1. Configuration of products enabling end-user customization
  2. Creation of a product architecture enabling more commercial variants with less components
  3. Simplification of the manufacturing and supply chain enabling automation.
