||Research on Key Factors of Notebook PC OEM/ODM Evaluation from Branded Firm’s R&D Perspective|
|Date of Defense
||Since 2001 the top international Notebook PC brand firm, Dell, established their Research and Development Center (R&D Center), or called TDC (Taiwan Design Center), in Taiwan, other Notebook PC firms also set up R&D Centers in Taiwan to work closely with Taiwan Notebook PC ODMs. In 2006, Dell has already handed over all the consumer Notebook R&D teams to TDC in Taiwan. Hewlett-Packard (HP) established R&D center in Taiwan in 2002, it is called Product Development Center (PDC) and now has thousands of engineers. The major responsibility of R&D Centers in Taiwan is to cooperate with Notebook PC ODMs to develop and manufacture Notebook PCs.|
The purpose of this study is to understand how the R&D Center evaluates Notebook PC ODMs and what the key factors are for evaluation from the R&D perspective.
This study is taken by the depth of literature review and expert interviews and used AHP to develop a model of the evaluation to select a Notebook PC ODM as the partner to develop a new Notebook PC and mass-produce the products after complete development and validation. On the other hand, it helps Notebook PC ODMs to understand the client's selection criteria and know what the weaknesses are to improve accordingly.
