A Study on the Mode of Introducing Independent Maintenance into Traditional Industries That Rely on Manual Work

traditional industry, independent maintenance, competitive power


The vast majority of Taiwan's enterprises are small and medium-sized enterprises, which account for 98% and mostly are built up by the traditional industry. But along with the technical progress and development of production technology, the traditional industry is faced with survival bottleneck because of high cost and various competitors. Therefore this research aims to explore the mode of introducing independent maintenance to traditional industries, and to develop a suitable one for today's traditional industries. Research results will be provided to the domestic traditional industries for reference in order to reduce the cost and difficulty they may have in importing independent maintenances.
