QUESTION 1. What are the two approaches governments use to define high-tech? What are their strengths and weaknesses.
Answers :
High-tech means stylistic term applied to the expressive use of modern technology, industrial components, equipment or materials in the design of architecture, interiors and furnishings. There are two approaches governments use to define high-tech which is input-based definition and output-based definition.

The input-based definitions is based on criteria such as the number of technical employees, the amount of research and development (R&D) outlays or the number of patents field in a given industry. For example, U.S Bureau of Labor Statistic (BLS) classifies industries based on their proportion of scientists, engineers and technicians; firm that employ a high proportion of scientific, technical, and engineering personnel comprise high-tech industries. Similarly, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the National Science Foundation define high-tech in terms of the ratio of R&D expenditures to value added of a particular industry.

The output-based definitions is based on whether products embody new or leading edge technology. For example, the U.S Census Bureau identifies 10 major technology areas that produce such products biotechnology; life sciences technology; optoelectronic; information and communications technology (ICT); electronics; flexible manufacturing; advanced materials (semiconductors, fiber optics); aerospace; weapons; and nuclear technology. Similarly, the American Electronics Association uses the U.S government’s NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) to classify 45 high-tech industries into three major output-based groupings; High-Tech Manufacturing, Communications Services, and Software and Computer-Related Services.

    It doesn’t exist a single authoritative methodology to define high-tech industries. The organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) identifies high-tech industries based on a comparison industry R&D intensities, a calculation dividing industry R&D expenditures by industry sales. Industries identified as high-tech are: aerospace, pharmaceuticals, computers and office machinery, communication equipment, and scientific (medical, precision, and optical) instruments. They are considered as science-based industries that manufacture products while performing above-average levels of R&D. In much policy analysis it is common to use the terms 'high-technology' or 'knowledge intensive industries' in a somewhat loose way, as though in fact they are both meaningful and interchangeable terms. But we ought to remember that the term ‘high technology’ is a rather recent invention, and that its meaning is far from clear. The standard approach in this area rests on a classification developed by the OECD in the mid-1980s. The OECD distinguished between industries in terms of R&D intensities, with those (such as ICT or pharmaceuticals) spending more than 4% of turnover being classified as high-technology, those spending between 1% and 4% of turnover (such as vehicles or chemicals) being classified as medium-tech, and those spending less than 1% (such as textiles or food) as 'low tech'. High-tech can be defined according to three different approaches:  the sector approach looks at the high-tech manufacturing sector, medium high-tech manufacturing sector, and high-tech knowledge-intensive service sector, focusing on…

    Crescordia is at a crossroads, trying to decide whether or not to adopt the disposable fixation device. This question has come about due to their market share erosion, as the company currently does not offer a resorbable product line. Innostat offers a resorbable product (albeit, in the early stages of development) and gaining market share in both product lines. The decision of whether or not to enter the resorbables market now is a crucial question we should address. This decision will not only impact the current line of business but also the well being of the company as a whole in the future.…
