In this paper we present five modularity practices across the domains of mechanics, electronics and software deduced from observations from four companies. The practices are made to help product developers of mechatronic products to assist in finding the most efficient modular division of the products. Furthermore, we present a tool to assist in cross-domain modularity decisions and to help developers follow the five cross-domain modularity practices.
