Product specification systems: Economics, Technology and Organisation

    Project Details


    Product specification systems: Economics, Technology and Organisation (ProSSETO)
    The project was started the 1st of February 2003 and is funded by the Danish Technical Research Council (, the project ends the 31st December 2004. The Danish Technical Research Council has generously donated 2 million DKK covering four man-years plus expenses.
    It is the purpose of the project to develop knowledge about the use of product specification systems perceived as a combination of technical, economic, and organisational factors. The project has put forth the hypothesis that interplay between these three factors is crucial for realizing benefits from implementing product specification systems with regard to technical functionality, competitiveness and work environment. The project will further shed light on the radical organisational changes resulting from implementing a product specification system.
    The research is conducted by a team of 6 researchers with experience and competence in the areas of economics, organisation and the technical aspects of product specification systems. The project is headed by Associate Professor Lars Hvam email: whom together with Assistant Professor Jesper Riis, email represents the technical perspective.
    The Economic perspective is contributed by Associate Professor Jørgen Lindgaard Pedersen, email: and Assistant Professor Kasper Edwards, email:
    The organisational perspective is provided by Associate Professor Niels Møller, email and Research Assistant Morten Møldrup, email:
