Subject:
Level: Advanced
Description: A Product-Service System (PSS) is an integrated combination of products and services. Industrial systems falling under Pay-for-Performance (PfP) business model are type of PSS where organiza- tions sells services to its customers. Offering a PfP system requires analysis of huge amount of data and based on the information gained, an organization can charge its customer on the per- formance. In this thesis, we identified several services that can be provided to PfP systems and identified several reasons for having a cloud platform together with edge computing for successful deployment of PfP systems. The main contribution of this thesis has been on identifying different architectural solution for PfP systems. We carried out this task by performing a cost analysis of a remote monitoring solution provided by Microsoft Azure for a single Stressometer system. Due to high cost and limited provisioning of Azure services in different Azure regions, we mentioned few alternative ways of designing the solution for PfP system that best suit needs of organizations that have systems distributed globally such that all industrial systems can be provided as PfP systems.
