Challenges for industrial product/service systems: experiences from a learning network of large companies
2009 (English)In: Industrial product-service systems (IPS2): proceedings of the 1st CIRP IPS2 Conference ; [01 - 02 April 2009, Cranfield University, UK] / [ed] Rajkumar Roy, Cranfield: Cranfield University Press , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
In Sweden, manufacturers have a growing need to extend the control of their products in the supply chain. This need is fulfilled by some manufacturers through the use of a product/service system business approach. This paper explores how a group of Swedish manufacturers, working together with academia, have started a workshop series where the most important and topical issues for their integrated product/service offering approaches are dealt with. The large company network studied in this paper faces many challenges in order to achieve a good product/service system business. Much of these challenges are related to changing different peoples' mindset whether it is within the company and/or with external companies and customers. Having a learning network approach of dealing with these challenges has so far been perceived as a good manner of tackling the questions raised within the product/service system providing companies.
