Identifying the Value Proposition of Modular Manufacturing Information Systems for Digital Transformation

Unlocking the Value of Modular Manufacturing Information Systems for Digital Transformation

On May 23rd-24th, Timoleon Farmakis, researcher at ELTRUN, The E-Business Research Center of the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), participated in the International Digital Transformation Society Conference in Naples, Italy, and presented a paper titled “Identifying the Value Proposition of Modular Manufacturing Information Systems for Digital Transformation.”  This conference was an excellent opportunity to bridge industry perspectives and academic research, featuring 140 international participants, 110 papers, and representation from 18 countries.

Our research focuses on the transformative potential of modular manufacturing information systems, providing insights into how these systems can drive efficiency and agility and support industries’ digital transformation efforts. In particular, this research is grounded on a focus group implemented in the context of the Modpapto project involving the technology partners and the managers on behalf of the pilots. Then, we evaluated the qualitative data to examine further the pilot’s jobs, pains, and gains, as well as the products and services (to be developed)  that work as pain relievers and gain creators. The objective was to identify the various value proposition trajectories introduced by such a system in connection with the observed product-market fit, simultaneously mapping the potential digital transformation outcome.

This research is related to the business and exploitation task of the Modapto project and involves the four real-life industrial cases of Modapto pilots.
