IPS2 Design Process: A Comparative Study between Literature and Industrial Approaches

  Although the merits of Industrial product-service systems (IPS2) have been widely reported in the literature, the methodologies currently used to design IPS2 are not yet mature in either academia or industry. The objective of this paper is to determine the direction of design processes as proposed by academic research compared with those in industry. A comparison of industrial design methodological practices with the literature has revealed that the main commonalities are within the development of the value proposition, capability assessment, and the stakeholders’ engagement, whereas differences are observed in through life performance optimization, repeatability, financial modelling, intangible benefits and end-state visualization.
