Analyses modularisation in the world auto industry. Modularisation has involved architectural changes in product, production, and supplier systems in the industry. As an attempt to understand such multi-faceted, complex processes, this chapter proposes a conceptual framework that sees development/production activities as multiple hierarchies of products, processes, and inter-firm boundaries that are interlinked. Using this framework and drawing on case studies and questionnaire survey data, the chapter examines the on-going processes of modularisation in the industry and argues that tensions exist among the three hierarchies, and such tensions may lead to further changes in product, production, and suppliersystem architectures.
