  • Improve Sustainability of Decentralized Energy Using Product Service System Based on ICT

    Solar home system (SHS) as a single product faces many challenges in rural areas due to minimal traffic infrastructure, inadequate education or declining confidence in handling this technology. Therefore, SHSs give much of its potential away to improve all dimensions of sustainability. A new approach is described which is applied within the micro-energy supply system project (MESUS) where SHSs as a single product are shifted to a productservice system in combination with an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) based on remote monitoring to overcome SHS limitation and increase system life span. MESUS project increases SHS sustainability by meeting the customer demands with respect to the whole product lifecycle. The new approach aims to integrate (PSS) products and services as equivalent solution elements in order to maintain innovative business models with (ICT) for providing added value for customers.

  • Business terms: Model for a Telecom operator business view of SLA

    The rapidly growing service-oriented economy has highlighted key challenges and opportunities in ICT-supported service and product lifecycle management. From a service consumer point of view there is no standardized way to locate, evaluate, negotiate and monitor services. Composition of third party services is fraught with uncertainty due to absence of definitive SLAs. Moreover, there is a lack of a standardized, homogenized and extended-used model for a set of business terms for SLAs that allows an automatic negotiation of products with customers and with third parties. So, from the service provider perspective, creating customized service offerings, negotiating with individual customers, and translating from business requirements into specific internal provisioning manifestations consumes valuable time and resources. Furthermore, there is no mean to create attractive products composed by several different services coming from different domains and consolidate the underlying SLAs in a business customer-faced SLA. Ultimately, the service marketplace is frustrating and cumbersome for both service providers and consumers: a significant opportunity has arisen for a holistic SLA-management framework, able to understand and manage such a set of integrated and homogenized set of business parameters.

  • Towards a production-related Carbon Footprint of IT-services (CFIS)

    For manufacturers of consumer products the Carbon Footprint of Products (CFP) has emerged as an approach to quantify the environmental impact resulting from product-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions expressed as carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) equivalents. GHGs are emitted throughout all stages of the product life cycle. This paper conceptualizes a production-related Carbon Footprint of IT-Services (CFIS), which focusses only on CO<sub>2</sub> emissions induced by the energy consumption of ICT resources operated in data centers. In order to set the scope of the production-related CFIS, we propose an approach that combines IT-Service lifecycle known from ITILv3 and product lifecycles of ICT resources. Within described limitations, parameters and measurement approaches to assess energy consumption of ICT resources are presented as a condition for a cause-fair allocation of consumed energy to IT- Services.

  • Assessment method to measure smartness of cities

    The paper is introducing an adoption of Industry 4.0 Concept on Smart City theoretic model. Cities are upgraded with latest computing and ICT technologies throughout all systems and infrastructure. New data are collected in big amounts and ability to use them is changing how city subsystems can communicate together, to make cities work better and serve better to their users. Smart Cities are convoluted Cyber Physical Model Systems with gradually growing network of all of its parts including human social networks. Cities are under continuous development, in relation to attractiveness of city structure, based on all activities and transactions conducted in city area and related surrounding, newly also through connected virtual world. Industry 4.0 Concept is one of segments of city's recent or near future upgrade. Integration of advanced computing technology and Information Computing Technology (ICT) throughout whole production enterprise enable to share data, information, and instructions between all agents during all phases of product lifecycle, a product partially participating as a vehicle of product development instructions. Industry 4.0 concept includes six principles, which are compared to Smart City near to 4.0 model. Triangle Rule Diagram is introduced to investigate relationships between all main domains in city live - Client, Enterprise and Facilitator at concept of Smart City near to 4.0, where integration of computing technologies is embedded in all of these domains and inside all city systems and processes connecting them together. Services become a predominantly main city's product as outcome of City Enterprise. Ability to carry portion of instruction about Product development is part of new Smart city near 4.0 concept, as well as during post-product development phases.

  • A foresight strategy proposal for ICT scenarios definitions: An application for PLM tools and systems

    Technology foresight has an important role for companies and institutions for make predictions and defines drivers to be leveraged and scenarios to be implemented. Foresight become more relevant in case of organizations working in the development of complex products. The Italian project KHIRA wants to innovate the product design processes using and customizing emerging technologies and providing a unique point of access to all the relevant knowledge for the designers. Several methodologies and technologies are developed in the project KHIRA included a foresight strategy. Based on this assumption, the paper proposes a technological foresight strategy suitable to merge contributions coming from the industrial and academic fields through a combinations of feedbacks and emerging trends. An application of the strategy has been performed to explore evolutions of PLM tools and systems. Reliability and Replication of the strategy are guaranteed trough a careful definition of each step.

  • Identifying enablers for future e-Services

    The starting point of the project is the observation that new information and communication technologies (ICT) are often introduced without taking into account the requirements of elderly and/or disabled users, resulting in products and services that are hardly usable by those users. A method for identifying enablers for future e-Services is described. In short it identifies usability problems with future interaction technologies and map these future interaction technologies to e-Services. The results of investigations using this method allow stakeholders in different stages of the research and development lifecycle e-Services to spot potential difficulties in the design of user interfaces which could cause elderly or disabled users to experience usability issues.

  • Reducing environmental impact and increasing reliability through packaging: A lifecycle assessment approach

    As the information and communications technology (ICT) industry continues to implement practices to improve the reliability, environmental performance and total cost of goods sold (COGS) of its products and services, extending one's view beyond the product itself can offer additional, and at times significant, opportunities. This paper will provide an analysis that shows the impact that product packaging (used for shipment and storage) can have on overall reliability and environmental performance. We show that optimized product packaging can contribute to an increase in reliability due to improved electrostatic discharge (ESD) and corrosion protection, as well as a 40-fold reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The analysis will include the environmental benefits in terms of GHG emissions throughout the lifecycle of alternative storage bags, from the product design and raw material extraction phase through end-of-life activities. This work demonstrates that by using a synergistic approach for the primary packaging of products, improvements in the critical trio of reliability, environment, and COGS can be achieved.

  • Smart city near to 4.0 — an adoption of industry 4.0 conceptual model

    The paper is introducing an adoption of Industry 4.0 Concept on Smart City theoretic model. Cities are upgraded with latest computing and ICT technologies throughout all systems and infrastructure. New data are collected in big amounts and ability to use them is changing how city subsystems can communicate together, to make cities work better and serve better to their users. Smart Cities are convoluted Cyber Physical Model Systems with gradually growing network of all of its parts including human social networks.

  • PLM audit in the telecommunication industry

    The telecommunication industry is currently challenged by a strong growth in complexity. Enabled through the ongoing convergence process with the media and ICT industry, lots of new companies entered the telecommunication market challenging the incumbents. Controlling the higher level of complexity becomes crucial for the old-established market player. Taking the lessons learnt from the manufacturing industry, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) appears as a holistic approach for coping with these challenges. Due to the fact that no common available PLM model exists for the communication service industry and also no standard PLM IT-solution is provided by the software industry, best practices knowledge for PLM is generally not available. Having anticipated this constraint the authors set up an international study on the Status Quo and Perspectives of PLM for illuminating this area. In a preparatory step PLM design elements and targets have been derived from a PLM model for the service industry. These elements established the basis for conducting the survey. Based on the data, three complexity groups have been formed. Within these groups the PLM implementation degree and PLM target fulfillments have been analysed for providing complexity group specific recommendations. These data sets as well as the validated correlation represent a unique database, which can be used for making comparisons between a company and its peer group in order to retrieve specific recommendations in the course of a PLM-audit. In this paper this approach will be described and applied for one company.
