Configuration in a circular economy

How to use a configurator to upgrade existing products

Industrial products are often designed to meet one specific need. A few years later this need might have changed, and new requirements must be meet. That’s when the need to reconfigure an existing product comes into play.

This problem can be solved in different ways. Sometimes major upgrades are just not allowed, the product need to be used by someone else like it was once configured.

An interesting alternative that provides new business opportunities is to use a configurator with designated logic for upgrades. This presentation focuses on challenges when a advanced medical device needs to be re-configured – several years after it was initially customized.
