Nowadays I took an even tougher job, which had been mentioned before. However, finding possible subcontractors in Taiwan for Kimura Industry is much more difficult than it was thought to be because I don’t understand manufacturing in detail. For example, there are two criteria of choosing possible subcontractors. One is high quality, and the other is low cost. The two requirements are common in the industry. The biggest problem is that since I have no idea about industry, I could not judge their quality. A lot of exclusive expertise is required to perform my job well.
On the other hand, comparing cost seemed to be easier to deal with. However, you are wrong in this case. Because every components and parts in this industry are usually unique and customed-made, it is impossible to compare cost among various manufacturers. In addition, they don’t show their quotation in public. If you want to know the cost, you must discuss your requirement of product with each manufacturer respectively and wait for their quotation afterwards. Therefore, even though I can understand Japanese, mandarin Chinese and the technology, I still cannot compare cost beforehand.
Struggling for a few days, I am going to embrace another weekend. I like senses of achievement after overcoming challenge. In order to perform my work well, I hope I can come up with effective solution after this refreshing weekend.
