Professor Kanji Ueda from the University of Tokyo will share his recent research work and thoughts about manufacturing and innovation for value creation. “The presentation begins with introduction of recent world trends of manufacturing innovation strategy program such as Industry 4.0, including historical backgrounds. Then, it introduces new theory toward value creation based on Value-Creation Classification Model, which defines Class I as “providing value” to satisfy customer demands by exchange, Class II as “adaptive value” according to changing environments in use, and Class III as “co-creative value” which emerges through interactions among producer and customer. Finally, it emphasizes a new role of manufacturing science & technology to increase social surplus”.
