Application of Network Analysis for Characterizing Service Modularity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the potential of the application of network analytical techniques to identify and characterize modularity of service processes. Services can be conceptualized as systems of interrelated components which can be decomposed in order to achieve a modular design. The paper is based on a network theory perspective to the quantification and visualization of service process architectures. Metrics are considered in order to evaluate their usefulness for academics and practitioners interested in understanding service system design. The paper suggests a number of metrics of importance for evaluating components and their interrelationships in service systems.
