No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it's going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.
Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values. Considerate la vostra semenza: XXVI vv 'O brothers, who amid a hundred thousand Perils,' I said, ' have come unto the West, To this so inconsiderable vigil Which is remaining of your senses still Be ye unwilling to deny the knowledge, Following the sun, of the unpeopled world.
Consider ye the seed from which ye sprang; Ye were not made to live like unto brutes, But for pursuit of virtue and of knowledge Translation: Longfellow 5 Manufacturing companies are nowadays facing an unprecedented series of challenges to their survival: The consequent need for agile and sustainable production solutions is the utmost motivation behind the development of innovative approaches which often are not in line with the state of art.
It is well documented that companies fail in recognizing how such disruptively innovative approaches can yield an interesting economic output. This, in turn, enhances the risk of leaving the aforementioned promising technologies conceptually and practically underdeveloped.
In the field of automatic production systems the Evolvable Production System paradigm proposes modular architectures with distributed, autonomous control rather than integral design and hierarchical, centralized control. EPS technology is thus disruptive: This dissertation investigates the possibility of using the recent sophisticated developments of the concept of Business Model as a holistic analytical tool for the characterization and solution of the issue of bringing disruptive and non-fully mature innovation to proficient application in production environments.
In order to purse this objective the main contributions in the relevant literature have been extracted and combined to an original definition of business model able to encompass the aspects deemed critical for the problem.
Such a construct is composed of three elements: The subsequent work has focused on the EPS paradigm as a specific case of the overall problem.
The first step has been a full characterization of the related value proposition through an innovative approach based on a bottom-up decomposition in its elementary components, followed by their aggregation into meaningful value offerings: This collection of Value Offerings has then been used as a basis to generate the EPS business models.
In particular for each single offering a possible set of necessary activities and resources has been devised and organized in a coherent value configuration.
The resulting creation mechanisms have then been linked among each other following a logical supplier-customer scheme for capturing the value: Finally the results have been validated in a semi-industrial system developed for the IDEAS, project through the individuation of the areas of application of such business models.
