Abstract

There are two main objectives of this paper. The first is to identify factors behind the successful progress of the die and mold industry in Republic of Korea. The second is to evaluate the role of digital technology in transferring process of die and mold-related techniques from Japan to Korea. Regarding the first objective the author arrived at the factors of “market”, “digital technology”, and “human development”. The development of the die and mold industry in Korea, which satisfied these three conditions was termed the “Korean-style development model.” By analyzing the case of Korea, it is possible to suggest that the introduction of digital technology made it easy for transferring process of die/mold-related techniques to other Asian countries. Further, introduction of “digital technology” alone is not sufficient condition. The requirements of “market” and “human development” conditions are also satisfied together. (The rest omitted)
