No More Growing Complexity

The module variant specification ensures that new product assortment building blocks adds value. By defining variants through product properties, it becomes clear why variance exists and what market needs it serves.

Modularization Based on Strategy

The module indication matrix helps a team understand how best to divide the product into modules. Analyzing technical solutions from a company strategy perspective gives a good indication of how to group functions into modules.

Pick the Best Concept

Creating a product assortment with as little functional overlap as possible might require some tough decisions. The concept evaluation tool helps a team reach a consensus around which technical concept brings the most customer value at an optimal complexity cost.

Protect the Module Interfaces

Modules are connected and their value is protected through their interfaces. In the interface matrix, these are documented and governed. This prevents design decisions that break interface integrity and deteriorate the architecture’s ability to deliver value.
