Product with Service, Technology with Business Model: Expanding Engineering Design
2011 (English)In: DS 68-4: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED11), Vol. 4 / [ed] Culley, S.J.; Hicks, B.J.; McAloone, T.C.; Howard, T.J. & Lindemann, U., Glasgow, UK: The Design Society, 2011, 449-460 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Looking back over the last decade, the importance of an expanded understanding of engineering design has been shared within the engineering design community. Presented concepts and methods to support such expansion include Functional Product Development, Service Engineering, and Product/Service-Systems (PSS) design. This paper first explains PSS design as an expansion of engineering design, away from merely the physical product. Secondly, it gives a review of PSS research and a projection of future research issues, also ranging out into untraditional fields of research. Finally, it presents a new promising concept beyond PSS design; via an integrated development of technology and business model. This can be of particular interest for further research, especially due to its high freedom for designers and thus high potential for innovation.
