How well do you know your ecosystem? What does it take to limit the global temperature within 2°C, and what are the implications to specific industries? When will autonomous vehicles become main stream and how will it impact other modes of transport? In what areas is preventative medicine cost effective? How will additive manufacturing (3-D printing) disrupt traditional manufacturing? These are just a sample of questions that can be explored through the industrial ecosystem modeling framework.
An industrial ecosystem encompasses an entire flow of goods and services from source to end consumption. A modeling framework is utilized to understand how these complex industrial ecosystems behave. This framework can be used to simulate how the ecosystem responds to industry transformations, emerging technologies, and other potential disruptions. Simply put, it provides a lens to “See the Future” of an entire industry landscape, understand the interdependencies, and position innovation.
Industrial ecosystem market models are built from capturing the basic truths within an industry, defining connections, and describing landscape interactions. The models leverage large data sets to calibrate the governing metrics across the entire ecosystem. Utilizing this foundation based on physical truths, the ecosystems can be projected into the future, contextualizing various forecasts, identifying trends, and detecting the root cause of market dynamics. This approach allows identification of key variables and leading indicators, and quantifies their impact across the entire landscape. Finally, different scenarios of the future can be simulated and interrogated in real-time by manipulating the key variables. These simulated scenarios model how the changes cascade upstream and downstream, stress-testing market opportunities and investments.
With Industrial Ecosystems, you can see across an entire complex industrial environment and strategically position your product strategy and technology roadmap for now and in the future.
