So, in short, a typical agricultural equipment manufacturer tends to put the product platform concept at work in multiple ways:

Developing families of “global” products, with as many models as possible in each family (to limit development investments and product cost)

Standardizing components (another cost reduction driver)

Applying modular sub-systems to a common base (again cost optimization)

Adapting and improving product development  methodologies and organizations (to improve effectiveness and efficiency)

Investing on variety of configurations on a given base more than on separate different models (optimize and focus the effort).
