Product-Service solutions are becoming more and more necessary in manufacturing context. This leads to the evolution from Product (manufacturing) Systems to Product-Service Systems (PSS). Development of such systems is a complex process that requires efforts, particularly on the interactions and integration of product and service life cycles. In order to decrease the complexity of this process, Enterprise Modelling Techniques (EMTs) can be applied as support. Two main propositions are formulated in the frame of H2020 PSYMBIOSYS European project. The first one is the use of MDSEA (Model Driven Service Architecture) for PSS development in order to generate interoperability solutions. The second proposition is a Federated (symbiotic) Decision Structure for PSS in order to coordinate the interactions between the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Service Lifecycle Management (SLM).
