Participatory methods in service innovations and servitization research
During DIMECC’s Future Industrial Services (FutIS) program, different methods have been used not only for research, but for boosting the service innovation and knowledge creation processes in and between technology-based firms and research teams. This high-tech result summarizes three participatory methods that were used in FutIS.
Service business mindset - Examples of how technology-based firms move toward services
This booklet introduces the rationale for service business transformation and the key components of service business mindset. It shows practical examples of how technology-based firms have adopted and enhanced their service business.
Highly corrosion and wear resistant coating for power generation industry
In FIMECC HYBRIDS programme highly corrosion and wear resistant coating extending the service life of metal components for power generation were developed. The coatings enables a more efficient utilisation of biomass and waste in power generation industry reducing the greenhouse gases and the dependence on imported fossil fuels.
Quantitative Analysis Tool for the Mechanical Properties of Granites to Improve Drilling operations
The quantitative analysis tool to investigate the effects of surface micro cracks on the mechanical properties of granites was developed under the FIMECC BSA programme. This method provides a unique opportunity to understand and estimate the mechanical response of rocks in different drilling condition. This enables the development of effective and cost efficient drilling...
Novel wear and corrosion resistant coatings by high kinetic thermal spray processes
New corrosion and wear resistant coatings have been produced under the FIMECC HYBRIDS program using modern thermal spraying processes. These coatings help the participating companies to take their next step in extremely competitive industrial fields, such as pulp and paper, power and process industry.
Strategic Change towards Future Industrial Service Business
The book containing various aspect of industrial transformation towards service business was created as a result of FIMECC FutIS program. The handbook enhances technology-based firms’ service business transformation by providing several contributions to service business research in Finland, with consideration of the latest international developments in the area.
LeanMES always up-to-data

Video series on UX
Positive user experience as a philosophy is a powerful way to re-think business. Video series on UX (in Finnish) offer insight into UX-driven design and the role of user experience (UX) in business. Videos also includes examples how user experience philosophy has been deployed in companies.
New wear test devices narrow the gap between research and practice
Experimental research plays a key role in solving wear problems. The following four novel wear test devices were developed in the DEMAPP programme: a dual pivoted laboratory jaw crusher, an impeller-tumbler impact-abrasion tester, a high-speed slurry pot tester, and a high velocity particle impactor (HVPI) for wear model and simulation validation. The test devices were...
