Since the advantage of low production cost is not existing any more for companies based in Taiwan due to the global manufacturing approach, how to reduce the production costs effectively is a critical issue for most of the manufactures. In the mean time, the communication of research and design, human resource management, customer support service, and daily operations across the international boundary also become important in order to achieve the goal of making the accurate daily support, create good quality products and providing products more quickly for customers. At the same time, companies usually grow up by merging other companies to quickly catch up the speed of innovation and production. How to integrate information & culture quickly between each other also needs to be studied. The purpose of this research is to make a suitable workflow development that can fit company culture requirement and handles daily demands and lead into manufactory & sub-company rapidly for Taiwanese electronic industry. The developed workflow fits the needs of WfMC which specify the requirements of process definition tools, workflow client applications, invoked applications, other WFMS enactment service and administration & monitoring tools. By using the workflow control, the case company efficiently reduces the inventory level, production cost up to 10% within one year testing period.
