Through the digitalisation of manufacturing, product-service systems (PSS) and smart connected products are, from the companies' side, driving a market transition from a sale of products towards a sale of use of solutions, and, from the customers' side, reshaping the concept of value. The systematic integration of intangibles services with physical products requires companies' alignment also in terms of practices and tools adopted to develop and design these complex solutions adequately. The ext...
Companies are frequently using in-house developed scripts, macros and applications to support and automate the development of products and product variants. These items are often of different types ...

Engineering changes are inevitable and emerge at any stage of the product lifecycle. Lot of research and implementations have been done for development of support systems at the design stage. However, fewer efforts have been found in the area of manufacturing and associated management. Implementation stage in a plant must be considered as critical as the design stage, and involved teams must be equipped with the right system and tools. The paper proposes a framework for effective engineering cha...

The aim of this research is to investigate the use of natural language processing techniques for ontology modelling that would address semantic interoperability problems arising due to terminological and semantic differences during information extraction from documents. These documents contain terminologies that are specific to the group and experts involved in creating them. As manual extraction is a tedious process, natural language processing techniques are suggested in this work. Text from d...

Engineering-to-order (ETO) companies encounter two major issues greatly affecting them: 1) often, customers request products that exceed a company's previous experience. In this case, these companies are usually proceeding with experiments, using full scale prototypes, to validate a new design; 2) significant time is required for the product to be designed and fully engineered. To present a framework addressing both these issues, we introduce: a) a method that uses finite-element (FE) models and...

This article is a literature review that investigates current practices of supplier's delivery assessment and the valuation of management's decisions regarding underperforming suppliers. The development of this article is intended to aid as literary basis for future development of a comprehensive performance index and a cost function model. Derived from current literature, an underperforming supplier faces three potential outcomes: 1) switching the supplier; 2) increasing collaboration; 3) maint...

A product-service system (PSS) is an integrated bundle of products and services, which aims at creating customer utility and enhancing manufacturers' competitiveness. Given that products and services are integrated over a specific cycle, PSS lifecycle has become a key notion in PSS research. However, most studies focus on PSS lifecycle from a provider perspective although the essence of PSS is to create customer utility. The current work proposes a customer-oriented model of PSS lifecycle as a s...

In an era when the usage of mobile devices is expanding, it is important for product services to also follow this path. The connectivity and the fast and seamless data exchange supported by modern networks allows companies to come closer to their customers and provide a set of product services that improve product experience and provide meaningful feedback throughout product's lifecycle. Towards that direction, this research work presents the combined use of an augmented reality maintenance supp...
