System integrators’ new challenge: Product development without mass production

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    Global corporations are seeking fewer suppliers from whom to buy more complete subsystems. Simultaneously, they transfer parts of manufacturing to LC-countries. We present an empirical study on how the change from mass production to manufacturing concept development takes place in three Finnish case companies. The focus is on what kind of roles are emerging in value networks. A new value network model demonstrating that the re-composition of various ‘pieces' in value chains necessitates a structure or an actor - a system integrator – is presented. The model is based on early supplier involvement and networked product development theories.
