Abstract. Product personalization and market globalization require product meeting different needs of users. Open-architecture product (OAP) is proposed using adaptable interfaces and different functional modules to achieve the product adaptability, extendibility and sustainability. The functional modules in the OAP include common platform modules, customized modules and personalized modules. These three types of modules are connected using adaptable interfaces to form an OAP. Adaptable interfaces are used to connect functional modules to ensure that personalized requirements are satisfied through upgrading or replacing of functional modules. The interface affects the operation of functional modules in replacement, which impacts the product adaptability. Operation efficiency of product interfaces is also important for third parties to develop personalized modules for different users. It is therefore important for interfaces to connect modules with the operation efficiency in the module assembly and disassembly.

Keywords. Interface, Assemble/disassembly tool, Accessible analysis
