The Influences of R and D Management Capacity and Design/Manufacturing Integration Mechanisms on New Product Development Performance in Taiwans High-Tech Industries

Pang-Lo Liu and Chih-Hung Tsai Tsai

Abstract:
With rapid changes in technology, product manufacturing techniques and extreme market changes, the life cycles of high-tech products have become increasingly shorter. The high-tech industry must continue research and development (R and D) and innovation to improve New Product Development (NPD) industry performance. This research analyzed the influences of R and D management activities and design/manufacturing integration mechanisms introduced by Taiwan’s high-tech industry on NPD performance. This study on the relationship between R and D management capacity and NPD performance considers the intervening variables of industry and corporate position. Taiwan’s high-tech industry has gradually entered the technical capacity-based and design/manufacturing integrated industry improvement era. This research reveals the significance of academic and empirical application to the high technology industry. The research result found that the stronger the R and D management capacity of Taiwans high-tech industry, the more significant its influence on NPD performance, the better the design/manufacturing integration mechanisms of Taiwan’s high-tech industry, the more significant the influence on NPD performance, the stronger the R and D management capacity of Taiwans high-tech industry, the better the design/manufacturing integration mechanism and the more significant their influences on NPD performance, corporate scale was not necessarily the major factor for the NPD success and corporate scale did not result in significant differences in NPD performance and the higher the leading degree of corporate techniques, the more significant the NPD performance.
