Moving into integrated solutions: Effects on the product development
Paper in proceedings, 2015

This paper focus on servitization of manufacturing companies and investigates what effects the transition towards integrated solutions has on the product development during the early phases of the transition. Based on ten interviews with employees in a manufacturing case company, it is concluded that the product interfaces, the balance between centralized and local development as well as the process of creating a value proposition, are influenced in the product development when moving into providing integrated solutions.
