“Building the tool together with our customers is of great importance to ensure that we can offer a service that meets our customers’ needs and that truly has value.”
We are developing a new life cycle analysis tool for heat and power companies. The tool will give up-to-date information on the customer’s plants and future prospects considering legislation, future need for repairs, future energy prices and many other factors.
During the research phase, we listened to our customers and identified their needs for the development project. Through the interviews, we received many interesting perspectives on life cycle thinking, as well as concrete suggestions for components to include in the future life cycle tool. Building the tool together with our customers is of great importance to ensure that we can offer a service that meets our customers’ needs and that truly has value.
The research phase of the development project, including customer interviews, is now being finalized. In the next phase of the project, a framework will be created for the software on which the future life cycle tool will be built. The first version of the software will be released towards the end of 2019.
