Proactive maintenance as success factor for use-oriented product-service systems

Exner, Konrad ; Schnürmacher, Christian ; Adolphy, Sebastian ; Stark, Rainer (2017)

In use-oriented Product-Service Systems (PSS) the ownership of the product remains with the provider who is responsible for maintenance, repair and overhaul [1]. Thus the risk of machine unavailability is transferred from the customer towards the PSS provider. In order to minimize this risk the provider needs to reduce unscheduled downtimes to enhance machine availability. Hence proactive maint...

What is the “Source” of Open Source Hardware?

Bonvoisin, Jérémy ; Mies, Robert ; Boujut, Jean-François ; Stark, Rainer (2017)

What “open source” means once applied to tangible products has been so far mostly addressed through the light of licensing. While this approach is suitable for software, it appears to be over-simplistic for complex hardware products. Whether such a product can be labelled as open source is not only a question of licence but a question of documentation, i.e. what is the information that sufficie...

Benefits and obstacles of sustainable product development methods

Stark, Rainer ; Buchert, Tom ; Neugebauer, Sabrina ; Bonvoisin, Jérémy ; Finkbeiner, Matthias (2017)

In the last few years, numerous approaches have been introduced for supporting design engineers in developing more sustainable products.
