Business model aspects of digital platform deployment

General description

Here the term “business models” is used in a wide sense, complementing the technological and organisation aspects of digital platforms.

One proven tool for analysing and shaping business model is the “Business Model Canvas”. When trying to apply this tool to platforms, it appears that some elements apply to platform-based business models (e.g. the “value proposition”) and that tools as the ”canvas” can provide a first inspiration.

However, for digital platforms the traditional business models view in the narrow sense falls short of describing the business and relationship aspects of platforms. In particular, the strict “partner” and “customer”- view has to be replaced by an ecosystem-perspective.  In addition, this ecosystem can be highly dynamic, which means that platforms can move into new user groups, change their features and might have the typical effects. Another difference is the central role of data for platforms, meaning that data governance is one of the essential elements of the value proposition of platforms.

 


Specifics for Project Z-Fact0r | Zero-defect manufacturing strategies towards on-line production management for European factories

Description there is a vast business opportunity for innovative, high-ROI (Return on Investment) solutions, that will ensure better quality and higher productivity in the European manufacturing industries.
Comments In order to support the commercialization of the Z-Fact0r solution, the project partners developed a business model canvas.
 Z-Fact0r middleware platform and components Result title Z-Fact0r middleware platform and components
 Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Z-Fact0r (Zero-defect manufacturing strategies towards on-line production management for European factories) Result description that cover quality aspects of the product for monitoring the manufacturing process was established.
 Techniques for product reworking Result comments In context, in the case of a defect, material can be subtracted by means of laser ablation or classical machining, thus removing of the problematic area cleaning or preparing the surface.
