Sustainability awareness in engineering design through serious gaming

Abstract Sustainability considerations are traditionally difficult to trade-off with technical and business requirements in an early design phase. Hence, design teams need support to reflect early on in the process, on how sustainability may affect profitability and customer value fulfilment in the long term. The commoditisation of modelling and simulation techniques points to gamification and […]

Designing solutions with the product-service systems digital twin: What is now and what is next?

Abstract The emergence of IoT has propelled the traditionally known Product-Service System (PSS) to be Digital Twins (DT) are of particular interest in the domain of Product-Service Systems (PSS), to predict hardware availability, to inform about the needed features of new solutions, and to forecast the expected performances of new configurations in operation. The aim […]

Data-driven value creation in Smart Product-Service System design: State-of-the-art and research directions

Abstract The emergence of IoT has propelled the traditionally known Product-Service System (PSS) to be characterized by smarter technologies, enabling them to collect and process data from the operational stage and facilitate communication between the customer and the provider. Commonly referred to as Smart Product-Service Systems (Smart PSS), these systems promise to create value at […]
