The purpose of this deliverable is to systematically analyse the literature at the intersection of open design and distributed production in an attempt to reveal truly alternative business models being explored. 131 journal articles were identified through a systematic search of three databases (ie. Web of Science, Scopus, EBSCO) and reviewed according to value creation processes, drivers/themes, business model elements, forms of collaboration, people’s involvement, and governance, intellectual property mechanisms, alternative modes of production & consumption, economic sustainability of open design business models, and life cycle stages. As a result, the review resulted in a novel conceptualisation of stakeholders, a framing of decentralised and distributed production and consumption, the identification of newly emerging stakeholders to establish value creation networks, and a future vision of sustainable production and consumption facilitated by open design knowledge – all of which will inform the upcoming work packages of the DF-MOD project.
