International Technical Transfer of Automobile Manufacturing 891264

Automobile production technology has been transferred in the order of "automobile assembly technology", "automotive parts manufacturing technology" and "production preparation technology". Transfer of our "automobile assembly technology" has already been nearly 100% completed and, as the manufacture of local parts is promoted and our experiences to undergo model changes are widened, the transfer of "automotive parts manufacturing technology" and "production preparation technology" is making a steady progress.The most critical point that makes the technical transfer difficult is the small automobile markets in developing countries where it is impossible to acquire a sufficient production volume which permits satisfactorily low cost. Various measures to secure a sufficient production volume such as exports and complementation within regions have been taken so far, but any remarkable effect has not been achieved. Under such conditions, the transfer of these types of technology was first started by means of "localization of technology" taking into account the production scale and technical level of a specific region, and then it was gradually developed into "globalization of technology" which is used to manufacture automotive parts and equipment as internationally traded products.Accompanying the automobile production technology, plant management technology such as "quality control technology", "production control technology" and "cost control technology" was transferred. These types of control technology helped solidify the base of enterprise, which in turn served for making the transferred automobile production technology take root and develop. The role that the solidified base played deserves attention. It can be expected that based on the set of control technology, the ASEAN countries develop as production bases of automotive parts and automobile production equipment.
