Partnering as a Stepping Stone in the Transition to PSS for the Construction Industry
2015 (English)In: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 30, 347-352 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The paper aims to explain and analyze how the construction industry can benefit from PSS, and how collaborative approaches such as partnering can be a stepping stone in this transition. The potential sub-optimization between construction and maintenance, as well as the necessity of availability in roads for example, make Product Service Systems a suitable approach for improvement. Adapted solutions though the iterative design approach, co-located actors, an active buyer and functioning information flows resulted in a successful project. Interviews conducted with the buyer, the contractor and the design consultant, as well as project documentation, were used to collect data.
