The DIMECC Design for Value (D4V) program focuses on door-to-door supply chain which is under digital disruptions and is rapidly changing towards an ecosystem of fully autonomous system-of-systems. Program work is conducted in two interrelated areas: autonomous maritime logistics and manufacturing use cases. D4V program is part of OneSea ecosystem roadmap implementation.
Business concepts from program partners are used as tools for pilots and research. The program approach is based on business ecosystems and customer value as these enable effective way to challenge the existing business models and roles of the actors in the current value chain. The research will give answers to following high level questions:
- What are the business models and ecosystems to enable business growth during and after digital disruption?
- What are the key technology solutions to enable, drive or restrict digital disruption?
- How to engage companies and their employees in the new ecosystem, and external stakeholders in the change?
The program is partially financed by Tekes
