This bibliometric analysis identifies the extent to which the methodical development of modular product families (product side) and agile project development (process side) can be beneficial for coping with complex product development tasks. The accomplished co-occurrence analysis reveals an indirect relationship between the development of modular product families and agile product development. This indirect connection is because the different methods are incorporated in the field of Design Methodology. However, the analysis leaves a gap in the direct interaction of both subjects, a subsequently accomplished bibliographic coupling points out. A consecutive in-depth abstract and paper analysis reveals further research on their integration is necessary.
