Description

Analyzes a number of Japanese computer manufacturers and their efforts to compete successfully with US software companies. The text explores the concept of Japanese "software factories", in which large numbers of people are engaged in developing computer software in co-operative ways.

`An ambitious and impressive piece of work. It should prove valuable to at least three groups: those interested in the software industry, in Japanese business, and in the relationship between technology and organizational forms.' Sloan Management Review

Texte du rabat

Though Japan has successfully competed with U.S. companies in the manufacturing and marketing of computer hardware, it has been less successful in developing computer programs. This book contains the first detailed analysis of how Japanese firms have tried to redress this imbalance by applying
their skills in engineering and production management to software development. Cusumano focuses on the creation of "software factories" in which large numbers of people are engaged in developing software in cooperative ways--i.e. individual programs are not developed in isolation but rather utilize
portions of other programs already developed whenever possible, and then yield usable portions for other programs being written. Devoting chapters to working methods at System Developing Corp., Hitachi, Toshiba, NEC, and Fujitsu, and including a comparison of Japanese and U.S. software factories,
Cusumano's book will be important reading for all people involved in software and computer technology, as well as those interested in Japanese business and corporate culture.



Résumé
Though Japan has successfully competed with US computer makers in manufacturing and marketing hardware, it has been less successful in developing software that competes with US software companies. This book analyses how a number of Japanese firms, in an effort to catch up, have created what are called `software factories' in which large numbers of people are engaged in developing software in co-operative ways.
