Abstract [en]

Construction is traditionally a trade that produces unique, one-off products designed specifically for the project in an engineer-to-order process. However, the development of flexible product platforms, based on the theory of mass customization, can offer product flexibility with affordable costs. The degree of commonality can also be increased if applying the products-in-products concept. This study aims to conceptualize and test theories of mass customization through modularization for applications in the construction industry. This is examined for three cases, with different specification processes (modify-to-order, configure-to-order and select-variant) incorporating bothbuilding and infrastructure products. The results show that the products-in-products concept is useful for enabling mass customization in construction. While the design can be integral in the select-variant type of specification process, the architecture needs to have a modular structure to enable a modify-to-order or configure-to-order type of customization.
