The core competitiveness of the manufacture enterprise is the product design capacity and technology design capacity, which are essentially the capacity of persons. One aspect is the professional capacity of engineering designers and one aspect is the management capacity of engineering managers. It is difficult to avoid the engineering designers, which will lead to the loss of the enterprise engineering design capacity; at the same time, the cooperation in the department, especially the cooperation among departments is always the main factor affecting the enterprise product research & development and technology design progress. Talent outflow affects the enterprise product competitiveness and the low-efficiency cooperation affects the product launching speed.
When talking about the competitive strategy, Deloitte Consulting had ever pointed out: no matter if the enterprise adopts the cost leadership or differential competitive strategy or other strategic measure, it may easily be imitated or surpassed by the competitor.
