AI’s role as a cornerstone of the servitisation approach is evident across asset-intensive industries, where technologies like enterprise simulation and digital twins are increasingly being employed. These tools enable businesses to simulate scenarios, anticipate disruptions, and optimize service delivery to meet customer needs effectively.

Moreover, AI-powered anomaly detection is helping organizations prevent equipment failures, reduce downtime, and personalize customer interactions by analyzing data patterns and trends. The implementation of automation, including robotic process automation (RPA), is streamlining service delivery, enhancing operational efficiency, and improving customer satisfaction.

Overall, organizations that embrace AI and automation are positioning themselves at the forefront of the servitisation journey, driving innovation, customer engagement, and sustainable growth. By leveraging these technologies effectively, businesses can create a competitive advantage that sets them apart in today’s rapidly evolving business landscape.
