Technology Tiers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEncyclopedia chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

A technology tier is a level in a product system: final product, system, subsystem, component, or part. As a concept, it contrasts traditional “vertical” special technologies (for example, mechanics and electronics) and focuses “horizontal” feature technologies such as product characteristics, safety, comfort, or handling. Product functionality is in focus rather than product specifications. Suppliers take care of technical specialization, whereas further development of product functions takes place within the OEM.
