SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT-SERVICE DESIGN IN MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
The interest of manufacturing enterprises in Product-Service systems (PSS) is growing to achieve new strategic advantages and greater earnings. However, companies still adopt product-centred design processes and lack of methods and tools to handle the relations between tangible and intangible items and manage a multifaceted design process involving multiple stakeholders. In this context, the paper proposes a methodology to support the design of manufacturing of PSS. It is demonstrated by an industrial case study focusing on a service-enhanced mechatronic appliance.
