BigLever: Bring Products To Market Faster with a Platform-Modularity Approach

Product-centric and platform-modularity approaches are common methods used to develop products. For companies with only one product, the product-centric approach works well. However, manufacturers with a family of products utilize product line engineering for increased efficiency. Developing products with a platform-modularity approach brings a host of benefits.  Introduction to a Platform-Modularity Approach For many companies, …
