Abstract (english): 
Modular product structure determination requires continuous evaluation of the processes involved. Modularization is an appropriate method for product structuring. It takes into account the requirements from product life phases, such as development, production and after-sales. Assembly, as an essential part of production for the company, requires easily mountable products. Short lead-times and flexible processes are some other main requirements. The methodical procedure presented in this paper proposes a single diagram to represent the product structure and its resulting assembly sequence in an integrative manner. The tool developed performs structuring on the product and demonstrates the impact on the assembly process. The use of key figures is proposed for the evaluation. Data required for the calculation of these key figures is extracted from the diagram. The procedure is applied to the development of a model aircraft interior.
