Industrial Product-Service Systems (IPS2), which is defined as a€œan integrated industrial product and service offering that delivers value in use, a€ has expanded rapidly over the last decade. IPS2 has allowed us to achieve both high added value and high productivity and has enriched our QOL by improving the performance of products and services. We are now struggling with many awkward issues related to sustainability, but IPS2 is expected to be the a€œphilosophera€™s stonea€ for solving these issues. Following the pattern of conferences held in Cranfield in 2009, LinkApping in 2010, and Braunschweig in 2011, the fourth International CIRP Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems, held on November 8-9, 2012, in Tokyo, will cover various aspects of IPS2. Topics planned for this yeara€™s conference reflect the latest IPS2 information in both the natural sciences and humanities and include case studies from various industries. IPS2 is still a relatively new field, so it is important to keep track of the entire context in order to promote more cross-sectional cooperation between multimodal fields and disciplines. The fourth International CIRP Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems will serve as a vital platform for such collaborations and the discussion of new scientific ideas.Proceedings of the 4th CIRP International Conference on Industrial Product- Service Systems, Tokyo, Japan, November 8th - 9th, 2012 Yoshiki Shimomura, Koji Kimita ...
