Knowledge Alliance Proposal: WP 1 Create Simulation of Innovation Diffusion

Dear all - this is the close to final version of work package 1 for our Knowledge Alliance proposal. The work package is focused on creating the simulation of innovation diffusion systems in high value manufacturing from ideation to market saturation. This simulation is the core to all other work packages and will be used in work package 6 to design ideas for flowing these at optimal speed. If you have explored the materials provided at https://sourceforge.net/projects/entov-hvm/files/Value%20Networks%20Archive/ you will see that we have a rock-solid foundation for completing this work package quickly and with high quality.

WP 1 Create Simulation of Innovation Diffusion
Description
This implementation work package creates a simulation of the living (eco-) system that describes the diffusion of innovation from ideation through market saturation. The simulation consists of multiple layers:
  • a “value network” model based on behavioral roles and sequenced (in-) tangible exchanges between these. The primary inputs are a generic network describing the diffusion of innovation from ideation to market saturation derived from previous research and the single “success story” from each participating business created in face-to-face workshops.
  • a “process” model of the network model detailed to BPMN Version 2.0 (ISO/IEC 19510:2013).
  • a “simulation” of the interdependencies between key value and process network model variables. The initial variables for exploration are based on previous research efforts and will be adjusted as necessary.
  • a “value creation” model describing value creation in terms of intellectual capital reporting, and
  • a simple interactive dashboard and scenario / game playing capability.

All models will be integrated through a coherent mathematical model. All versions of the simulation will be subject to detailed change management through separate development, test and production versions. All deliverables will be accompanied by relevant data capture templates and user guides. Training materials will be developed as part of the work package “Create and Pilot Curriculum”.
Tasks
Task #1: Create Baseline Generic Simulation (Version 1.0)
Create baseline “generic” simulation version 1.0 based on previous research. Includes supporting materials such as data capture templates, user guides, and a training course.  The baseline simulation and all future versions will include all layers (value network, process, simulation, value creation and dashboard).
Task #2: Enable work package #9 “Create and Pilot Curriculum”
Enable work package #9  to use simulation version 1.0 as the basis for starting to address the tasks in this work package. Enablement involves training work package participants (therefore for all enablement tasks the work package manager, the work package researcher and the supporting project members) and ensuring they are able to use the simulation in order to shape and complete their tasks and deliverables.
Task #3: Create Business Specific Simulations
Create one “success story” simulation for each participating business using the generic simulation as a template. This will occur during regional events in one day face to face work shops with business participants in that region.
Task #4: Create Integrated Simulation (Version 2.0)
Integrate business specific simulations with baseline generic simulation to create simulation version 2.0  with appropriate revision of supporting materials. Integration involves mapping the business specific simulation results from the previous task to the generic simulation version with relevant adjustments of such as needed.
Task #5: Enable work package #2 “In-Depth Needs Analysis”
Enable work package #2 to use simulation version 2.0 as the basis for the needs analysis. Enablement involves training work package participants and ensuring they are able to use the simulation in order to shape and complete their tasks and deliverables.
Task #6: Enable work package #3 “Case Studies”
Enable work package #3 to use simulation version 2.0 as the basis for case study development. Enablement involves training work package participants and ensuring they are able to use the simulation in order to shape and complete their tasks and deliverables.
Task #7: Create Integrated Simulation (Version 3.0)
Integrate the results of work package #2 and work package #3 with simulation version 2.0 to create simulation version 3.0 with appropriate revision of supporting materials. Integration involves mapping the business specific simulation results from the previous task to the generic simulation version with relevant adjustments of such as needed.
Task #8: Enable work package #4 “Identify Game Changers”
Enable work package #4 (in the simulation) to use simulation version 3.0 as the basis for analysis of living (eco-) system performance variables (combination of). Enablement involves training work package participants and ensuring they are able to use the simulation in order to shape and complete their tasks and deliverables.
Results (outputs and outcomes)
Result #1: Baseline Generic Simulation (Version 1.0)
The baseline “generic” simulation version 1.0 is based on previous research and includes supporting materials such as data capture templates, user guides, and a training course.  The baseline simulation and all future versions will include all layers (value network, process, simulation, value creation and dashboard). The value network layer will include modules for context analysis, stakeholder analysis, role definitions, scope definition, simple visualization, transaction capture, transaction sequencing, exchange analysis, value network analysis, performance indicator analysis, impact analysis, value creation analysis, perceived value analysis, and intellectual capital reporting. The process layer will include tasks, events, gateways, resources, markers in a swim-lane format.  The simulation layer will include causal loop diagrams, stock and flow diagrams, equations, and the ability for continuous and discrete event simulation. The value creation model will describe the tangible and intangible value (internal, external and structural) created by the simulation under varying scenarios. The dashboard / gaming layer provides a simple to use intuitive interface for non-expert interrogation of the various layers, including the ability to test the impact of differing scenarios on such. This output is due in M3. The language of the output is English. The media of the output is table calculation documents, text documents and presentation documents.
Result #2: Enablement of work packages #2,3,4 and 9
Through enablement of the owners, assigned researchers and supporting project members for work packages 2,3,4 and 9 these (and all other work packages) will be placed in a position to use the then most actual simulation version as the basis for starting to address the tasks in their work packages. Enablement will involve training relevant project members in depth using training materials developed by work package 9 including assurance of developed skills through appropriate assessment measures recommend by work package 9. Enablement will furthermore involve advice and guidance on how best to apply the simulation within these work packages. Enablement will also contain ongoing support services in respect to operating the simulations and necessary change management to the simulation. This output is due before the launch of work packages 2,3, 4 and 9. The language of the output is English. The media of the output is a text document.
Result #3: Business Specific Simulations
Simulations for stories describing successful innovations in each of the participating businesses across all layers based on the generic simulation as a template. The value network layer will be created during regional events in one day face to face workshops with business participants in that region. Collaboration with the business participants will be ad hoc to gather further information or to validate certain (parts of) layers. The process, simulation, value creation and dashboard layers will be created after the event and then validated in 1/2 day virtual workshops with the business participants. This output is due in M6. The language of the output is English. The media of the output is table calculation documents, text documents and presentation documents.
Result #4: Integrated Simulation (Version 2.0)
The Integrated Simulation (Version 2.0) integrates the business specific simulations with the Baseline Generic Simulation (Version 1.0) with appropriate revision of all layers and supporting materials. Integration involves mapping all the individual business specific simulations created to the generic simulation version with relevant adjustments of such as needed. The mapping will be based on applying generic taxonomies used in the Baseline Generic Simulation (Version 1.0) whereby a quantitative assessment of the (forward and inverse) uncertainty thus injected for all layers will be completed and used for calibration purposes in order to remain with an uncertainty range estimated to be acceptable at +/- 10%. This output is due in M6. The language of the output is English. The media of the output is table calculation documents, text documents and presentation documents.
Result #5: Integrated Simulation (Version 3.0)
The Integrated Simulation (Version 3.0) integrates the results of work package #2 and work package #3 with the Integrated Simulation (Version 2.0) with appropriate revision of all layers and supporting materials. Integration involves mapping all the individual business specific simulations created to the generic simulation version with relevant adjustments of such as needed. The mapping will be based on applying generic taxonomies used in the Baseline Generic Simulation (Version 1.0) whereby a quantitative assessment of the (forward and inverse) uncertainty thus injected for all layers will be completed and used for calibration purposes in order to remain with an uncertainty range estimated to be acceptable at +/- 10%. This output is due in M9. The language of the output is English. The media of the output is table calculation documents, text documents and presentation documents.
