Modularization of PSS

  • Wenyan SongEmail author


PSS is high-value service solution (e.g. repair, maintenance, and energy management) based on product to help manufacturers to achieve sustainable growth and profitability. Modularization can help to realize customization, increase in flexibility, reusability of service modules, and simplification of complex PSS systems, etc.
