modular approach



  • An approach to the design of equipment, systems, programs, and the like, in which independently prepared and self-contained units, or modules, are combined to form the final product. This allows for simultaneously developing and testing the various components, and also helps break down a large and complex system into more manageable parts. Also called modular principle, modular technique, modular design, building block approach, or building-block design.
