Name:4th CIRP conference on Industrial Product Service Systems
Description:The 4th Industrial Product Service Systems Conference (IPS²) 2012 respects that manufacturers in developed countries today regard service activities as increasingly important. Some manufacturing firms are strategically shifting from a "product seller" towards a "service provider". Thus, the concept named Industrial Product-Service Systems (IPS2) has been obtaining attention. An IPS2 is defined as "an integrated product and service offering that delivers value in use". This conference will focus on industrial and academic knowledge/experiences with PSS and various business activities that support PSS.
