Abstract
This study proposes value-added servitization strategies, differentiation servitization, expansion servitization, and integration servitization based on the depth and breadth of servitization. This study selects 58 domestic manufacturers among the top 100 Taiwanese manufacturers as subjects and collects 271 transformation events. The findings are described as follows:1.
