    Abstract : Life cycle environmental problems have been addressed by a number of strategies. However, the results are mostly lamentable because solutions are searched for within the same paradigms that give rise to the problems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prototyping for Product-Service Systems innovation : Insights from the construction equipment industry

    Author : Ryan Ruvald; Andreas Associate Professor (Docent); Åsa Ericsson; Institutionen för maskinteknik Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Product-Service System; Engineering Design; Prototyping; Boundary Objects;

    Abstract : To radically increase the value delivered to the customers in the construction industry a concerted effort is needed to develop solutions beyond incremental adjustments. Simply providing add-on services to existing products does not effectively create solutions with enough gains in core customer values. READ MORE
