¡¨ A Network Style of New Product Development¡¨¡ÐExperience of Bike Industry of Taiwan

There has been a new style of new product development in the Bike Industry of Taiwan. The researcher refers it as ¡§Network-Styled of New Product Development (NNPD). According to the researcher¡¦s understanding, the Network-styled New Product Development is a product development model for which we need to measure its outputs or performances by all aspects of the industry instead of a single company or a single governing mechanism. Different types of firms on the industrial value chain and all external R&D's resources of the industry in Taiwan make a significant contribution to the development of new product. Therefore, firms are able to use an internal and interactive mechanism built among the firms to initiate more creations and to exchange technology of production. A high efficacy produced from the model is attributed to the efforts of all participating firms. Owing to fast and intensive interactions, a continuing and changing evolution of innovation happens, thus, leading to an unpredictable development of various products. This model of new product development, only constructed by the whole industry, is a unique competence of the Bike Industry of Taiwan, which has made it impossible for any other single firm or a conglomerate in other countries to emulate. Taiwan¡¦s Bike Industry then becomes even more competitive in the arena.
