Building a concept solution for upgrade planning in the automation industry


Industrial automation systems are long living systems controlling industrial processes such as power stations or pulp and paper production. These systems have strict requirements on the system's availability since all downtime is costly for factories. In such circumstances, all upgrades require special concern and planning, in a context of collaboration between the automation system's provider and user, to minimize downtimes in the user's critical processes. This paper discusses the problem of upgrade planning for such automation systems. It presents a concept solution based on a case study. The research is a part of broader research aiming at a better understanding of system upgrades in the case study company's service sales. The aim is also to enhance solutions for handling the identification and analysis of upgrades in collaboration between the case study company's internal teams and customers. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.

Towards Sustainable Open Innovation Collaboration Within Living Lab

Published by: Teemu.Karvonen Last modified: 2013.09.04


There is little empirical evidence of sustainable open innovation collaboration between SMEs and educational institutions under a Living Lab as an ecosystem. Consequently, there is scarce knowledge on how to engage SMEs, universities, and end users into a value creation based on sustainable open innovation collaboration. A social process model is used to describe the relationships between key actors within the Living Lab. The resulting model depicts in a concise way how the relationships have evolved over time. In this model, major encounters between the actors are those which have at least the potential to change the relationship state between the parties. The relatively stable passages between consecutive encounters are labelled episodes. By perceiving systems development in the open innovation ecosystem as a series of encounters and episodes, it is possible to identify the critical milestones of development work and to display the dynamics of a use‐case development trajectory.
