INNOVATION CYCLES CONCERNING STRATEGIC PLANNING OF PRODUCT-SERVICE-SYSTEMS

INNOVATION CYCLES CONCERNING STRATEGIC PLANNING OF PRODUCT-SERVICE-SYSTEMS

Year: 2008

Section: Product service engineering

Abstract

Managing the innovation process of complex product-service-systems (PSS) becomes increasingly difficult. This can be attributed to characteristics such as higher product and process complexity, increasing dynamics and a higher degree of uncertainty in the innovation process. To face these challenges, this paper proposes an approach in identifying and describing innovation cycles concerning strategic planning of PSS. Thereby, innovation cycles can be seen as recurring processes within and in-between the PSS-lifecycle-stages as well as the recurring process of strategic planning of PSS itself. Further, an approach is proposed how data gained from cycle-oriented strategic planning of PSS can be structured within a product-service-spectrum.

Keywords: innovation cycles, innovation process, strategic planning, lifecycle, product-service-systems

DESIGN 2008 - 10th International Design ConferenceDESIGN 2008 Conference was founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. To assist the process of development for the engineering design research community the organizers of DESIGN 2008 propsed seven core areas for the conference as described below. It was required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall area to emerge communities...
