In a globalized world, AMs are facing competitive pressure. Adding industrial services to the product range is a key factor to corporate value and global competitiveness. The path for manufacturers offering additional services like maintenance is called ‘servitiziation’ and requires big changes within the enterprise, especially when exporting the services. Difficulties occur because cultural, infrastructural and local service knowledge of target markets is crucial for success. Because of missing resources to get needed know-how, many AMs have not yet reached levels of sufficiency within this development.
The ProsperAMnet project has jointly developed innovative tools and approaches for supporting advanced manufacturers. Those tools help to identify internal leverages for improving the sale of industrial services and recognizing which services could be exported successfully. With the aim of presenting them and also broadening the discussion of the future of ‘servitiziation’ we are organizing the final event “How To Boost Service Performance & Service Export Trends in AMs”. The event is especially aimed at the representatives of the large companies and SME’s, policy makers, and BSO’s at national, regional, and European level.
