Purpose and goal

The goal of the project was to work together with customers and partners to validate the value-adding services and develop appropriate scalable business model for fully automated polishing based on the concept of digital twins. Nova has, based on interviews and discussions with five customers who represent different relevant market segments as well as a wider group of companies, developed a business model and a technology demonstrator.or.

Expected results and effects

The project was expected to create conditions for developing scalable business model and technology concepts for fully automated polishing. The project has resulted in: documentation of 5 interviews and dozens of meetings with companies. Technology concept shown at a fair and network meeting. First investigation of IPR strategy. Attention for the project in social media as well as at the innovation contest Stena Line Propeller Prize 2017 where the concept won.

Planned approach and implementation

We have visited and interviewed five businesses in identified market segments and conducted dozens of meetings with companies at trade shows and business meetings. This has given us a very good basis for understanding the needs and requirements of our offer. It has also become very clear that we need to create differentiated offers to the various market segments. To validate the possibilities to be able to create a system that supports the concept of digital twins, we have analysed the market available systems and developed our own solutions.
