Modular construction isn’t just something that applies to walls; it also applies to the way products are made. Modular often refers to building something out of pre-manufactured materials, which leads to a savings of time and money. Manufacturing the components ahead of time leads to an incredibly fast production time.
Ford is looking to incorporate modular into the design of the future F- series models. Using modular components will save money on complicated repairs and help keep down the cost of insurance premiums. Instead of having to use specialized equipment to fix trucks that had been damaged, modular pieces can be spaced incredibly quickly without the use of machinery.
