Modeling ‘ilities’ in early Product-Service Systems design

ABSTRACT Product-Service Systems, like all complex systems, are vulnerable to unpredictable environmental changes that can seriously undermine their ability to continuously deliver value to customers. The long-term consequences of volatile markets, unanticipated technologies, and unpredictable changes in society must be captured, modeled and communicated to decision makers since the earliest stages of the design, so to identify sustainable […]

Life cycle simulation to support cross-disciplinary decision making in early PSS design

ABSTRACT The development of early-stage simulation capabilities is a critical step in the quest for ‘frontloading’ early stage PSS design activities, reducing the cost and risk for rework associated with sub-optimal decisions. This paper describes how life cycle simulations, based on a Discrete Event approach, can be applied to support cross-disciplinary decision making in PSS design, facilitating […]
