These slides use concepts from my (Jeff Funk) course entitled Biz Models for Hi-Tech Products to analyze the business model for Expliseat, a provider of ultralight airline seats. Made from titanium and carbon fiber, these seats have 40% the weight, 10% the number of parts, and are 5 centimeters thinner than existing seats. The lighter weight saves on fuel cost and the fewer parts reduce assembly and logistics costs, making the seat cost about the same as existing seats. The thinner seats can enable more legroom or more seats, depending on the airline’s preference. These slides describe the value proposition, customers, method of value capture, scope of activities and the method of strategic control for Expliseat.
