Standardisation of Construction Principles

Standards that developers must observe during the product development are a prerequisite for efficient and customized manufacturing of small or large quantities. In addition, design principles that take into account the existing manufacturing expertise must follow logic and are based on platform strategies.

Project example 01

Standardization of furniture construction

Recreational vehicles

The initial situation

The customization of travel furniture and caravan construction is an important success factor. Consequences are smaller production quantities, larger set-up times and an effort for more part manufacturing. Standardization within the vehicle and furniture construction should ensure long-term competitiveness.
