Workshop: “New Approaches to Product Service Systems“
This workshop had a two-fold objective:
• To present new concepts, methods and IT tools to support Product-Service System (P-SS) in order to produce sustainable product-service solutions and to reduce the time-to-market.
• To discuss how to define and set-up a sound methodological framework for P-SS including definition of a service strategy and description of innovative P-S business models.
Within this context, Sergio Gusmeroli presented in detail five main obstacles hindering the implementation of the PSS within manufacturing companies. He brings Piacenza as a real case study, while discussing on PSY approach and solutions for overcoming these barriers.
