Flexible, efficient, modulated! – Perspectives of design to the definition of a customer-oriented product architecture.



Mass Customisation transforms the task of designers. The job is no longer endeavouring to achieve the one best integrated design that captives the imagination of all, but rather to create a modular architecture that enables myriad permutations, so that one and only instantiation can then be built that exactly matches the particular needs (Pine 1998).
This thesis examines the specification phase of the modulation strategy of the first product (M7) of the modular product series of Helkama Forste Oy, and consideration of customer’s needs. Mass customisation, product platforms and modular product structures have been comprehensively examined in various studies from the 1990’s up to date but from the design point of view this subject is quite new and requires further studying and practical examples.
