PSS for rail and road infrastructure: a literature study
Linköping University, Department of Management and Engineering, Environmental Technology and Management. Linköping University, The Institute of Technology.
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The productivity development for rail and road infrastructure has been weak for a longer period of time and some explanation can be found in the traditional contracts used with little room for incentives for innovation and development for the contractor. In cooperation with the Swedish Transport Administration a project was launched to investigate the possibility for Product Service System, PSS contracts within the rail infrastructure in Sweden to develop the current praxis. The first step in this study is to investigate benefits and challenges with PSS contracts using a literature study.

The ongoing PSS projects show positive outcomes so far, even though it is too early to evaluate the whole process. The most significant benefits with PSS contracts for rail infrastructure are development of technologies, increased efficiency and cost reductions, potentially new innovations, a life cycle perspective providing incentives for environmental consideration and closer relationships between procurer and contractor. It is not straight forward to change to this new way of contracting and to obtain the benefits several challenges have to be overcome such as changes in the work processes, risk allocation and to find a suitable the price mechanism.
