In this paper, we provide the main arguments for developing a collaborative product-service system business model between aviation original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies. The premise of this work is that such cooperation should benefit not only the OEMs and the MRO companies, but also other stakeholders such as operators and end-users. We also present the basic components of the model. It should be noted that the mathematical model has been built; however, page limitations do not allow us to present it in detail here. The model is currently utilized to conduct a large-scale case study that will be submitted for publication in the near future.
