13.00 Workshop – Configuration Management as an enabler for circular economy

” shape=”round” width=”full” effect=”fadeInLeft”]

Realizing that the resources of our planet are finite, the concept Circular Economy is getting increased attention. Traditionally a product is made available to a customer through a financial transaction that transfers ownership of the product from the manufacturer to the customer. However, there is a growing drive to change the business models to be more service oriented and we have seen a number of forerunners, such as Xerox’s “cost per copy” program, BMW’s DriveNow, and Volvo’s Sunfleet. These are examples where the supplier provides a combination of physical products, consumables, and services to secure that the customer can benefit from the “service of the product” without having to own, maintain, or repair the product him-/herself.

So, the questions is – What do the business models that come with circular economy imply for Configuration Management?

The workshop will start with a presentation by Christer Fröling, Syntell, on the concept of Circular Economy and how it affects our current practices, methodologies and mindsets.
