Abstract:The aim of the project was to elaborate innovations and strategies for PSS (product-service-systems) in defined demand areas (e.g. housing, mobility). The experience of other companies with successful implementation ("Best Practice") and the expertise of the project team resulting from previous PSS-projects were exploited. A special focus was put on the development of ideas that can be realised in practice in the different demand areas. Company-specific and demand area-specific framework conditions (e.g. of legal, financial and organisational nature) were examined, possible obstacles assessed and strategies elaborated how they could best be overcome.
