Towards a new collaborative framework supporting the design process of industrial Product Service Systems

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering book series (LNME)


The main idea of this paper is to present a collaborative framework for PSS development process. Focused on the engineering phase, this research will use the modular ontology to support the management of the interfaces between various engineering knowledge involved in the PSS development process. The supporting platform is developed as a part of a collaborative framework that aims to manage the whole PSS lifecycle.
