||In recent years, the breakthrough of science and technology has greatly changed human life. With the development of Internet and acceleration in global competition, economic globalization has become a major trend, and the influence of international organizations and multinational corporations are also becoming prominent. In terms of industrial development, single technologies can no longer meet the demand. Most innovations involve the technological integration across different domain. This study will focus on the analysis of technology collaboration across domain and international supply chain relation in automotive industry, to predict the promising Taiwanese automotive supply chain companies for the future.|
With the development of information technology, enterprise decision makers can use news media to guide investment decisions. In this study, text mining is used to extract “hot” terms of new technologies and products from the news. These words are then used to find others potentially related to them, by using word2vec to search for words semantically similar as these new technologies and products, i.e. extended terms. On the other hand, patents are undoubtedly the most complete technical documents available to the public. Each patent represents the output of research and development. We thus use the extended terms of new technologies and products as keywords to search for patents with documents containing these keywords in the USPTO database, and identify these Taiwanese supply chain companies with patents in USPTO database.
This study adopts DEA-based Malmquist productivity index to evaluate the enterprise performance of supply chain companies. The experimental results show that the Taiwan companies identified with this method are indeed promising in their growth.
