Open Economy Society - fab lab as strategic model for new supply chains


Published on

How a society where collaborating it's the rule looks like ?
How fablabs and all kind of shared microfactories could be key players in the near future?
We are facing a season of big changes, that someone called "big shift", where I'm observing an "open-everything" mood in response to the growing complexity of problems affecting our socio-economical infrastructures.
In this presentation showed at SMAU - Research to Business 2016 Bologna, I try to design a collaborative multi-level ecosystem where "smart factories" are accessible by smaller manufacturers, where SMEs are networked and supported to adapt to continuous changes (not necessarily forced to scale) and where, at the same time, peer-production and open networks, as well as individuals and communities are empowered and helped in succeeding.

Feedbacks are welcome :)

Open Economy Society - fab lab as strategic model for new supply chains

  1. 1. Andrea Cattabriga twitter @andrecatta mail fab lab as strategic model for new supply chains Open Economy Society
  2. 2. whats happening
  3. 3. everything we have built our society upon is going to change or die, forever Andrea Botto / "KA-BOOM #05" Pieve Emanuele, 2011
  4. 4. climate (sigh!) governance (slowly…) knowledge distribution transportation manufacturing organizations …
  5. 5. why everything seems to turn “OPEN”? CC Sylvain Naudin
  6. 6. data content knowledge/ education source codes licensing research systems etc… CC-Alan Levine
  7. 7. it’s complexity, baby (and it’s complicated) CC flickr user brewbooks
  8. 8. is it changing the meaning of “open/closed economy”? from a protectionism perspective to a “collaborative” paradigm
  9. 9. consumer ———— creators enterprises ———— civic society profit ———— no profit life ———— work overlapping roles
  10. 10. manufacturing changes as well
  11. 11. changing demand servitization technology knowledge access products as platforms makers / distributors manufacturing industry key change factors
  12. 12. mass customization becomes feasible (for real) the BASF SE “customized shampoo” experiment
  13. 13. -7.1 millions jobs in the next 4 years (vs. only 2.4 created) World Economic Forum 2016 is this “only scenario” feasible for anyone?
  14. 14. John Hegel III Deloitte US Center for the Edge Fragmentation + Centralization everyone can jump in almost any business, but at the same time big players are gaining power
  15. 15. multiple levels and scenarios individuals / communities / companies / clusters / networks / super plants
  16. 16. a collaborative multi-level ecosystem where smart factories are accessible by smaller players where SMEs are networked and adapted to continuous changes (not necessarily forced to scale) where peer- production and open networks support individuals and communities to succeed smart factories SMEs networks peer/ community production local global interoperabilitycommunities makers fab labs / microfactories people services services
  17. 17. // will probably keep on being different things in the mid-term // have different purposes // question of interoperability and “languages” // fablabs and micro-factories will specialize too small scale/P2P production specialized manufacturing mass/smart factories
  18. 18. so, what specific role could fablabs play in this scenario?
  19. 19. (of course) fablabs will keep on “doing” fablabs :) making and discovering opening up knowledge enabling prototyping etc…
  20. 20. The Internet of things, data and services are merging the physical and digital world (Forschungsunion 2013)
  21. 21. This is where knowledge- based services have a huge task ahead. Knowledge is also “learning by doing” and “learning by using” we got it! (Forschungsunion 2013)
  22. 22. CC Flickr user Patrick companies will become places of continuous learning and personal growth for people Learning Organizations for individuals and communities M. Tiraboschi (2014) we got it! in order to adapt to continuous shifts
  23. 23. strategic and multi-actor alliances are critical drivers of innovation, but SMEs regularly struggle with making purposively good use of external relationships for innovation. Open-innovation drivers for SMEs we got it! Van de Vrande (2009)
  24. 24. [in 4.0 scenarios] the use of highly specialized profiles with manufacturing skills for control and supervisions, could be a key factor from a competitiveness point of view On-demand Skills Providers Seghetti, F. (2016) CC Flickr user Hammerstein NWC we got it!
  25. 25. there’s a specific need for developing effective platform- based product systems enabling open source for hardware and a lot to experiment about P2P licenses and other forms of commons-based license models Open-IP strategy designers we got it!
  26. 26. making the entire new ecosystem working means interoperability and development of standards, allowing M2M communications. Makers must be involved in embracing an open attitude Support open interoperability protocols / standards we can do it!
  27. 27. become hubs for local production ecosystems and make its distributed infrastructure work! we can try to do it!
  28. 28. future is a common place, let’s make it together GRAZIE image CC Flickr user Sweetie187 Andrea Cattabriga twitter @andrecatta mail
