Understanding Modular Design in Manufacturing

Modular design, also known as modularity in design, is a design approach that subdivides a system into smaller parts or modules that can be independently created, modified, replaced, or exchanged. This approach offers numerous benefits:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved scalability
  • Enhanced customization
  • Reduced downtime
