    Abstract

    Service design, configuration and customisation have proved to be demanding tasks for industrial companies who previously relied mostly on their technical superiority and technological R&D. In services, offerings and customer interaction deal largely with knowledge. The higher level of intangibility, abstraction and tailoring makes it more difficult to understand and communicate the content and value of the service compared with those of technology-based products. This paper aims to widen the understanding of the role of piloting in industrial service innovation and co-creation, and to present preliminary models in order to support the management of service development pilots in a manufacturing context.
