Recently, with the development of new technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, and Cyber Physical Systems based on ICT or AI, the role of production is also changing. It is obvious that the traditional business model based on process chains for production functionality has limitations for further growth. In production, it is necessary to consider a value chain with service factors for adding innovative value to the products. “Value creation” is an important concept to realize a sustainable ecosystem in production.
This special issue focuses on “value creation” or “value in use” in production. Accordingly, comprehensive topics related to value creation in production are invited, including but not limited to:
– Smart factory, logistics, distribution with value chain
– Servitization in production industry
– Product service systems
– Sustainable ecosystem with value in production / service industry
– Sharing economy in production / service systems
