Product service systems (PSS) – integration of products and services – with aims to achieve economic profit and reduce environmental impacts, is a hot issue in academia. The purpose of this study is to comprehend the state-of-the-art in the field of PSS design, evaluation, and operation methodologies (PSS-DEOM) by conducting a systematic literature review. Up to 258 publications related to PSS-DEOM were reviewed and divided into three categories: PSS design methodologies (PSS-DM), PSS evaluation methodologies (PSS-EM), and PSS operation methodologies (PSS-OM). Based on the findings, future research trends were proposed and discussed.
