Abstract (english): The use of modular product architectures gives rise to a variety of effects in all areas of the company. So far, the effects that occur after a short period of time have been investigated - the effects that arise only after a certain period of time or a certain proportion of modules used are often neglected. The latter can, however, have a major influence on the economic targets, but are usually not taken into account in the initial modularization, since they are not known or can only be addressed imprecisely. For this reason, an empirical study will be conducted in this paper to expose the long-term effects of modularization. A model for the identification of time-dependent effects will be developed and applied to an example of a medium-sized elevator manufacturer. The result of this work is the derivation of success factors for the implementation of modular product architectures on the basis of long-term success.
