Research and Development :
History of R&D
Research and development is a completely new concept that has only been seriously discussed since the twentieth century, with only a handful of private service institutions utilizing R&D for industries. Prior to World War II, research and development activities were mainly focused on the US, Japanese and European military industries. In those years, issues were resolved at both the organizational and national levels by providing a solution and investing in it. Research institutes were usually small and their management was not complex.
Research and development in the direction of globalization
The debate on globalization, research and development has been in the US since the mid-decade. But the first generation of R&D was employed in the 1980s by employing efficient forces, providing them with facilities, using remote control tools in companies, but inevitably with the advent of technology, inevitably R&D was used more widely and led to the emergence of the second generation, and today there is the third generation that employs R&D managers as a set of macro-decision makers. Organizations participate. That is, a set of R&D, trade, technology and strategy work together to deliver precise planning to achieve a global marketplace, in which this generation of intelligent system management is central to any company’s survival. The total amount of capital invested by each company to research and develop different industries reflects the country’s progress in that industry.
Developments in R&D at Omid Pars Consortium
The path of R&D in the Omid Pars Consortium is planned in three consecutive stages.
• Define R&D mission, goals, structure, and processes
• Launch the technology management system
• Technology Innovation Management
After formulating the goals to achieve them, the Pars Consortium research and development team defines the right attainable goals and relies on world-class knowledge to systematically innovate to achieve a better solution or evolved product.
The mission of this unit is to provide an appropriate framework for explaining, planning, coordinating, conducting, and controlling research activities to provide a scientific solution to the group’s problems in various fields. This unit is responsible for policy making and leading activities to develop and enhance technology and strengthen the knowledge base at the consortium level and strives to build the right nucleus and utilize specialized human resources, day-to-day science, collaboration with local and foreign academic and research centers. And the knowledge available in all units facilitates the dynamics of this group through the knowledge management approach.
Research and Development Goals
The objectives of the R&D unit, which seek to achieve the desired level of organization, are formulated based on the organization’s priorities and needs in a coherent framework, some of which may be described below.
- Outline the manufacturing or production of new products and quality improvement
- Production of new knowledge in order to develop and optimize processes
- Fast profitability, quick performance improvements
- Discover and understand market opportunities and needs
- Strong participation in knowledge and learning processes
- Improving the efficiency of the workforce
- Increasing the competitive power in domestic and foreign fields and active presence in global markets
- Improve self-reliance
- Reduce manufacturing waste and find smart ways to reduce costs
- Production and manufacturing research
