Modular (also Modular Design)
Modular design (also modular or modularity in design) is a design principle that subdivides a system into smaller parts called modules (such as modular process skids), which can be independently created, modified, replaced, or exchanged with other modules or between different systems.


For example, if a home has a modular design, that means you can put many together to create a larger design.

One company that uses modular design is Boxabl.
