The work examines the organizational change of the wind
sector in the course of product and value chain
modularization. The methodology developed here analyzes
modularization using standardized variables and allows a
classification of value chains at company and component

Necessary adaptation and learning processes change
externalities and location requirements, lead to a
reorganization of relationships between components as well
as companies and create an organizational discontinuity.
This leads ultimately to a new spatial configuration of the
industry and its value chains.
