ProViking THINK kick-off!

Published: 24 September 2008

2008-09: September 23 was the day for the ProViking THINK (Teams for Heterogeneous Innovation Knowledge) kick-off. Partner representatives took part in the meeting. The project has a budget of 15 MSEK over three years.

A project within the Product-Service System area

This project aims to support PSS development teams to innovate by putting forward facilitating methods and tools. Specifically, the focus is on the following aspects, all helping to build a coherent methodology for team-based innovation:

  • Needs establishment and value modelling
  • Multidisciplinary teams
  • Effective knowledge sharing
  • Life-cycle knowledge modelling and visualisation of solutions
The project will be a joint effort of industry and academic representatives, where the work will be performed in a close collaborative mode. The project hypotheses are broadly captured in the statement that: visualisation of business and development related knowledge and rapid modelling and simulation in early phases support PSS teams to innovate and perform sustainable development.

Thus, besides increased knowledge about strategies and approaches for team-based innovation, demonstrators of tools and methods will be an outcome of this project.

Project partners are:
  • Designtech
  • Eurostep
  • Sandvik Coromant
  • Volvo Aero
