    Abstract

    Existing methodologies supporting innovation (management) and solution engineering are collected and checked against the developed requirements presented in D3.1. The result of this step is an overview on which part of which existing methodology achieves which requirements regarding sustainability. This overview is a basis for the creation of a new development methodology towards life-cycle based products and services. Since the business model aspects are covered in the work package 2 of the SustainValue project, this report focuses on current innovation and solution engineering methodologies that are used in manufacturing industry. They are studied from the perspectives according to the life cycle of a product: business strategy development and innovation management, management of design, planning and development, management of manufacturing systems, management of distribution, logistics and services, management of usage, end-of-life cycle management. The study reveals that there are various methodologies that could be used in order to support innovation and solution engineering within manufacturing industry during development activities. All the presented methodologies are considering at least some of the elements of sustainable development. According to the gap analysis of the studied methodologies, strategic approach to sustainability is needed, while the key challenge is to identify what is the company-specific sustainability recipe. Furthermore, companies cannot comprehensively reach sustainability objectives alone in the present networked manufacturing environment. Therefore it is important to consider sustainability at a network level over product life cycles.
