About this practical guide

This booklet has been developed as part of a three-year research project on “Product+Service+Data Integration” – in short, P+S+D Integration – at Copenhagen Business School. The project investigates the level of integration of products, services, and data as well as P+S+D strategies and initiatives in manufacturing firms in Denmark. The project is part of a larger initiative, Servitize.DK, which aims to enhance Danish firms’ abilities to successfully compete by providing service offerings. The project is financially supported by The Danish Industry Foundation.
