Managing intricate supply chains (SCs) in modular construction is challenging, necessitating a nuanced approach to enhance effectiveness. This study aims to explore the potential of platform thinking—a methodology that reimagines traditional, linear SCs into dynamic, interconnected networks, aligning producers' resources with user needs, through an integrative literature review method grounded in supply chain management (SCM) theoretical perspective. Identifying four prospects for platform-induced SC reconfigurations, this study offers novel perspectives on preparing the modular sector for the platform revolution, highlighting the importance of understanding its benefits and challenges.
