A Cooperation Model and Demand-Oriented ICT Infrastructure for SME Development and Production Networks in the Field of Microsystem Technology

Abstract : Like no other industry, until today microsystems technology is dominated by a few, large companies covering the whole development and production chain. Besides limitations coming from huge costs for equipment and manufacturing (especially in the field of Si-Microsystem technology) one of the reasons for the weak position of Small Medium Enterprises (SME) in this branch refers to organizational issues, arising from the specific surrounding conditions in this highly interdisciplinary and knowledge intensive field. Especially the smaller SME's lack of sufficient human resources and an effective management of cross company knowledge about complex Microsystems development to cover all aspects of a complex and parallel product and process development as it is inherent in the one product- one process paradigm of MST. Since most of the Microsystems technologies until today haven't reached an almost mature state it near at hand, that there is a demand for approaches, offering the chance to effectively handle the riscs of a MST product development - which basically is not a technical but an organizational problem. This aspect gains more and more importance when the number of companies involved in such a process development increases. If SME networks seriously want to compete with larger companies, new approaches on how to handle a distributed knowledge intensive product development process need to be found.
