Abstract

A significant number of ship locks in the Netherlands are due for renovation during the coming decades. To achieve this, Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), the executive branch of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, is investigating the options to meet the specific requirements, while allowing the necessary variety in the configuration of locks. This paper presents a method for the development of a module-based product platform for locks, based on component types and their combinations. By combining different design structure matrix (DSM) modeling methods, possible modules of lock components are defined and assessed. These modules consist of lock components that have a high level of commonality and thus influence each other. Together, these modules form the basis for a product platform for locks, supporting RWS with the renovation of their portfolio.
