In light of the growing digitization and with new technologies emerging, processes in the manufacturing sector are increasingly interlinked. To implement this, service systems are developed by means of Service Systems Engineering. However, present strategies are mainly focused on the development and creation of new services instead of taking into account already existing services.
The research project PRODISYS (Engineering of production-related Service Systems), which started July 1st, focuses on the systemic engineering of single services into service bundles in order to create an integrated value creation network for industrial production.
Together with fortiss GmbH as project coordinator, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) as academic partner and Audi, Continental, Crossbar, SAP and Xenon as application partners, new approaches of Service System Engineering will be developed and piloted in the course of the project. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), a range of methods and tools will be created that serve as a means for combining and orchestrating established and new industrial service offerings in so called Digital Industrial Service Systems. In a sub-project, CLIC plans and implements service systems with potentials for new forms of value creation and develops techniques for assessing and measuring the productivity of these solutions.
We are looking forward to working with our partners in this project over the next three years.
