About this product
- DescriptionGlobal Manufacturing Techlogy Transfer: Africa-USA Strategies, Adaptations, and Management presents practical strategies for developing and sustaining manufacturing techlogy transfers. It is particularly useful for helping developing nations achieve and sustain a solid footing of ecomic development through manufacturing. The book examines Africa and USA trade relations to demonstrate how modern techlogy invation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward ecomically. It then explores how to advance existing technical relationships through new and updated approaches. The book uses the case and template of trade relations of Africa and the United States to demonstrate how techlogy invation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward ecomically. The author discusses project management tools, highlights manufacturing as the foundation for ecomic development, and explores lessons learned. He details a systems approach, covering both qualitative and quantitative tools and techniques. Although focusing on Africa-USA techlogy transfer, the concepts are applicable to other techlogy transfer relationships. Africa is poised to assume a leading role in global manufacturing. However, the foundation for doing so successfully will depend on the development and sustainability of a reliable manufacturing infrastructure in Africa. A key requirement for this will be new and invative mechanisms for techlogy transfer. This book gives you the strategies required to address each techlogy transfer path as well as new invative approaches for developing and transferring new techlogy.
