Suitable for variants

Understand variant drivers and decouple them in the product architecture.

The Variety Allocation Model supports you in designing a product structure that is suitable for variants.

 

Productarchitecture

Decouple structures from the start and thus enable configurability and system engineering. For this, we model the product architecture. As a map of the product, it helps to produce a common, coordinated picture of the product that is valid for variant of the product.
The product architecture is a reference and basis for all subsequent development steps. It helps to identify the potential for functional decoupling and design:

  • To recognize, understand and define interfaces
  • Decouple product functions from the rest of the product, assign them to individual assemblies and lay the foundation Systems Engineering
  • Analyze the variant driver and design a variant-oriented product structure
  • Increase the standard share – Reduce the exclusive share

All the steps are supported in our software – for better visualization and more transparency.

Success story system engineering
Each project is a completely new product – it does not have to be so in the B2B business either.
In the future, project-specific systems can be individually compiled in this variant from 3 standard modules and 4 configuration modules in various variants. In five workshops we have designed the basic kit with approx. 50% standard parts.
