    Services are becoming increasingly important, and service systems are seeing the use of service-dominant logic to understand value creation through the integration of active and passive resources. Digital transformation is significantly influencing service systems, and new, smart technologies are enabling innovative value propositions, leading to smart service systems. Smart products, which are a part of the Internet of Things, are the main building blocks of such systems. Attempts have been made to conceptualize smart service systems, but there seems to be no consensus in the literature because, for example, smart products have not been defined in a consistent way. We therefore examine ways to classify smart service systems in terms of their characteristics and attributes. We develop a taxonomy based on a systematic literature review focusing on smart features. Furthermore, an evaluation using domain-specific use cases demonstrates the applicability of the taxonomy. Our contribution combines and extends the available conceptualizations regarding smart service systems to pave the way for the necessary future research.

In: Proceedings of the 53nd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences. Hawaii, USA 2020. doi:10.24251/HICSS.2020.452 Citation Details

    Self-tracking solutions have become globally widespread, as they promise numerous advantages (e.g. improving health) to their users. Despite their benefits, such solutions are often abandoned due to quality issues. This phenomenon can also be observed for digitized products in general. As self-tracking solutions are hybrid products, combining digital and physical components, traditional domain-independent and abstract quality models like the prominent ISO 25000 standard seem to not cover quality in an appropriate way. We address these issues by answering the research question of which factors affect quality perceptions of different stakeholder groups when interacting in a wearable ecosystem. We use a systematic literature review based on a research protocol to identify and analyze 98 quality-influencing factors from 19 studies that we cluster in a map. The identified factors are compared to the ISO 25000 standard, showing that certain factors like hedonic motivation are unconsidered thoroughly in the existing standard.

    Durch die Digitalisierung befinden sich Unternehmen oftmals in der Umstellung zu digitalen Geschäftsprozessen und Geschäftsmodellen. Dies bietet viele neue Chancen für Innovationen durch den Einsatz neuer Konzepte und Technologien. Um diese Chancen nutzbar zu machen, können Servicesysteme eingesetzt werden. Der Beitrag gibt einen Überblick über dieses Konzept und zeigt auf, wie Servicesysteme charakterisiert und entworfen werden können. Ein Servicesystem stellt ein soziotechnisches System dar, das auf die Unterstützung der gemeinsamen Wertschöpfung abzielt, indem verschiedene interne und externe Ressourcen integriert und kombiniert werden. Der Entwurf erfolgt im Rahmen des Service Systems Engineerings in meist agilen Prozessen mit dem Ziel einer frühen Markterprobung. Dabei kann der Innovationsgedanke explizit berücksichtigt werden. Vorhandene Entwurfsansätze sind jedoch meist abstrakt und daher weniger für den konkreten Entwurf geeignet. Es können daher wesentliche Faktoren identifiziert werden, die die Entwicklung von Servicesystemen beeinflussen. Der Beitrag schafft einen Überblick über den aktuellen Stand der Forschung und zeigt Ansatzpunkte für eine Verbesserung der Nutzbarmachung des Konzeptes Servicesystem.

  • Schiller, Barbara; Brogt, Tobias; Schuler, J. Peter M.; Strobel, Gero: Can Self-Tracking Solutions Help with Understanding Quality of Smart, Connected Products?. In: Ais (Ed.): Proceedings of the 26th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS). Portsmouth 2018. Citation Details

    Smart connected products (SCPs) have gained significant attention in different domains because they offer numerous benefits and change the way of competition and value creation. While quality is im-portant for SCPs, no holistic quality model is available to target the present quality problems. Further-more, since the concept of an SCP is quite abstract, a bottom-up approach that starts with a concrete example seems suitable. Therefore, this paper identifies the five key components of SCPs and maps them to self-tracking solutions (STS) in order to show that STSs are suitable substitutes. We also analyse quality models in corresponding areas to verify the absence of a holistic quality model for the selected example. This contribution identifies the research gap regarding holistic, stakeholder-oriented quality models and helps researchers understand SCPs better. 

  • Brogt, Tobias; Schiller, Barbara; Schuler, J. Peter M.; Eicker, Stefan: The Role of Quality in Sociotechnical Systems. In: Ais (Ed.): Proceedings of AMCIS 2017 - Twenty-third Americas Conference on Information Systems. Boston 2017. Full text Citation Details

    Today, value is co-created in sociotechnical systems in which different stakeholders integrate resources (products and services) in an interactive process. For these systems to be successful, quality is very important. However, existing systems often fail to deliver the right level of quality, and the available quality approaches seem to be insufficient. Therefore, this paper provides insight into the role of quality by applying a service system perspective. We show that a holistic quality perception that reflects the modern expectations of stakeholders is necessary. In addition, different resources for modern services and their interaction need to be taken into account. This results in the need for quality management specific for sociotechnical systems, which integrates different existing approaches to cover these demands. Furthermore, the authors suggest future research on perceived quality and technical support in this context.
