Visit to CityU KTO and Idea for R&D Management

I visited Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO), CityU for startup related meeting on 16 Jan 2017.  KTO is the vital link between the University and the community in terms of the exchange of knowledge, which includes technology, know-how, skills and expertise, for both commercial and non-commercial applications.  I took a photo in front of the office.

(Left: Dr. Victor Lau, I, Mr. Clement Lam and Ms. Fanny Ho)

HKSTP and KTO, CityU is partner for Innopreneurship Ecosystem since 2015 (Details at CityU Innopreneurship Ecosystem Launch Ceremony 2015).

I would like to share some ideas for R&D Management based on quality perspective.

Plan:
During the R&D Project planning stage (especially cooperation with University), it should be considered the following items.
-          Roles (Who does what?)
-          Responsibility (For what each party will be held to account?)
-          Liabilities (What money or other assets each party owes to the group?)
-          Rights of the parties (What each party will receive from the collaboration?)
-          Management of the undertaking and any IP involved.
-          Non-disclosure agreement (NDA) mechanism to protect both parties.
-          Assign Project-in-charge to follow the R&D schedule!
-          Written down the project deliverables (align both expectation!)
(Reference to Drafting Partnership agreement on R&D project below)


Do:
During R&D process, Design History File (DHF) should be kept.  It should be contain or reference the records necessary to demonstrate that the design was developed in accordance with the approved design plan and the requirements of this part.  It may include the followings:
-          Detailed design and development plan specifying design tasks and deliverable
-          Copies of approved design input documents and design output documents.
-          Documentation of design reviews.
-          Validation documentation.
-          When applicable, copies of controlled design documents and change control records.
(Reference to FDA Design Control Guidance for MD Manufacturers & MD seminar)


Check:
In each stage of the planning, the assigned project-in-charge should check the R&D progress, review the verification and validation data, as well as, reporting to both parties top management.  Some items should be involved:
-          Do Design Inputs match Design Outputs?
-          Do the scheduled deliverable obtained and satisfied?
-          Resource enough? (HR, time, material, technology)
-          Any problem met?  Are they solved?
-          Any design change needed?  Are they recorded?

Act:
After the R&D Project, we should identify the objectives met and any corrective action taken, as well as, any lesson learned; so as to improve the next R&D project in future.

My opinion is to add Quality Management System concept into R&D process and get the balance.  Professors and R&D student like freedom and feel free to try during R&D process. However, industry people need to control the outcome and project schedule.  We need a suitable R&D Quality Management System that not too tight and not too loose. 

There are 8 questions should be asked to startup or SME for formulating strategy and it related to R&D in the old seminar named “Formulating Strategy for Sustainable Growth” in the reference below.

Visit to ASHK Office and Introduction of Extenics

The purpose for the establishment of the Academy of Sciences of Hong Kong (ASHK) (港科院) is to promote the development and advancement of science and technology in Hong Kong, and to raise the city’s profile as a centre of scientific excellence.  I met Mr. Terence S.S. Chan (Secretary-General, ASHK) in ASHK office in Science Park and presented a book named “Extenics” written by Prof. Cai Wen and Prof. Yang Chunyan.  


Then I introduced the history about the development of Extenics which was the Chinese original academic subject created by Prof. Cai Wen since 1976.  The extenics aimed to solve contradiction problem through innovative transformation of the basic-elements.  I briefed the concepts of Extenics Basic-elements (基元) included Matter-element (物元), Affair-element (事元) and Relationships-element (關係元).  And then mentioned about Extensive Innovation Method (可拓創新方法) included Model (建模), Extension (拓展), Transformation (變換) and Selection (選擇).


After that Mr. Terence Chan gave me some valuable comments as follows:
i)            Extenics theory could describe the problem through basic-element very clearly. However, the most important was its application in the industry.
ii)          It should be demonstrated the predicable value.
iii)        The presentation was suggested to minimize the mathematical part.  Only stated the model and how it came out the result in which solved the contradiction problem under innovative way.
iv)        It needed some success real cases to persuade industry.
During our discussion, I would present the simple version for university students and found some cases for implementation (e.g. To help incubatees in Science Park solving different technical problem) so as to accumulate some real cases for teaching.

At the end, Mr. Terence Chan gave me their recent research report named “Science, Technology and Mathematics Education in the Development of the Innovation and Technology Ecosystem of Hong Kong”.

The Hong Kong Science and Technology Park Corporation (HKSTP) and Hong Kong Electrical Appliance Industries Association (HKEAIA) coorganized the IndustryConnect@Science Park event named “Industry 4.0 & Smart Living Solution” on 9th Jan 2017.  I met my old friend Mr. Edmund Cheung (who is HKSQ member; and teach me about 6 Sigma and Kaizen in 2005 during visit his company) and then we took a photo before the event start. (Details at http://www.hksq.org/company_based_competition_2005.htm


In the beginning, all HKEAIA members took a group photo for memory. (Left 4 was Andy Lui)


Mr. Peter Mok (Acting Chief Commercial Officer, HKSTP) gave a welcome speech and he introduced HKSTP program for industry and incubation such as Technology from Science Park and Laboratories service.  


Mr. Albert Lam (President, HKEAIA) then gave an opening speech and he said HKEAIA had established since 1998.  It aimed to provide a platform for industry to create business opportunities. 


After that nine Science Park Partner Companies would present in the 5 min presentation session.
I met my CityU EngD cohort Dr. Szeto Wing Hong and we selfie for memory.


Dr. Szeto Wing Hong was one of speakers and his topic named “Industry 4.0 solution – Nicada developed Tools (PTC Creo 2.0 plug in)”.  His company focused to provide research & development of CAD automation & optimization software solutions.


He introduced two of key products which named “Automation BOM Expert” and “Knowledge Reuse SBS Expert”.  BOM expert is a tool used to automatically generate bill of material, mold plan and exploded drawing for costing; planning; purchasing; production, etc. using your 3D part design.  


Then he demonstrated the BOM table which could match your ERP system. Moreover, it could make a tool plan.  The most insight was the 2D expansion diagram based on BOM automatically!


SBS (Shape-based Search) expert is a tool used to automatically search from “knowledge-based” created from past cost data; standard parts; designed parts; production parts, etc.  You would search your drawing from different version and easy to manage & search.  


During the Business Matching session, all members of HKEAIA joined the partner companies’ counters for their product demonstration.


After the event, I hadn’t joined the visit of the Robotics Garage.  I went to visit the China Stem Cell Clinical Applications Centre Limited during laboratory and GMP facilities construction phase.

 (Left: Jimmy (MC), Mr. Vincent Fung (Director, Kin Yat Holdings), I, Dr. Jackson Tang (CEO, Petostar Technology Ltd.), Dr. YC Chau (VP, TDK), Mr. Torin WT Fung (Senior VP, HKAAST), Ir. Peter Si (Project Manager, IVE) and Ms. Fung Ka Wing (Senior Manager, QF Secretariat))

In the beginning, Dr. George Lau (Asso. Professor, OUHK) represented IET to present a welcome speech.  He said continuous education was important for professionals and it was recognized by professional bodies as CPD.


After presented souvenir, we took a group photo included organizers, speakers and supporting organization representatives.  


The first speaker was Ms. Fung Ka Wing (Senior Manager, Qualifications Framework Secretariat) and her topic named “The Hong Kong Qualifications Framework: A Platform for Lifelong Learning”.  Her talk included “What is QF”, “Why is it relevant to continuing education and career development” and “How is it implemented”.  There are 142 countries and territories developed QF in the world.  


Then Ms. Fung explained HKQF was a major initiative by HKSAR Government to support lifelong learning and to enhance the quality and competitiveness of the workforce.  It included Qualification Register (QR), Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) and Specification of Competency Standards (SCS).  Framework governed by Education Bureau (EDB), Qualifications Framework Secretariat (QFS) and Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ).  And then Ms. Fung introduced the generic level descriptors (GLD).  


Finally, she mentioned some application of SCS included HRD & HRM, Benchmarking & Recognition and Education & Training.  Moreover, she explained QF Award for Learning Experience that each ITAC selected 3 awardees to receive HK$30,000 or HK$10,000 to respectively joining non-local or local learning activities relevant to the industry.


The second speaker was Ms. Fanny Tang (Senior Lecturer, OUHK; Assessment Manager, RPL Assessment Agency) and her presentation was “Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Assessment for Testing, Inspection and Certification Industry”.  She said School of Science and Technology, OUHK was appointed as Assessment Agency of RPL for Testing, Inspection & Certification (TIC). The short video was played at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7ZxMHUWxB4.


Then she introduced the assessment methods included written test, interview, practical assessment and its combination.  Fanny also briefed the Win-Win situation between employees and employers as follows:
Win for Employees
-          Gain recognition for qualification
-          Professional development and profile
-          Save money compared with other training program
-          Quicker qualification
Win for Employers
-          Fast tracking staff through the skills recognition
-          Reduction in costs of training
-          Efficient in identification of ‘skills gaps’ allowing for more focused training


Mr. Torin WT Fung (Senior Vice President, Hong Kong Association for the Advancement of Science and Technology (HKAAST)) was the third speaker and his topic entitled “Continuous Learning for Business Startup”.  He started his tech company since 2002 and then M&A by Taiwan listed company.  After that he started his 2nd startup company in 2011 under Science Park Incubation Scheme and graduated in 2015.


Firstly, Mr. Torin Fung briefed the different between Technology Driven and Market Demand concept.  He said IP was very important eventhough you sell your product unsuccessfully, your IP may be created income from other company.


For R&D procedures, Torin said it was not as same as University R&D which mainly focused on theoretical research but startup needed application research.  


After that he shared four critical factors for business startup included Finance, Innovation, Marketing and Sustainable Business.  His observed many startup companies in the park and found that their distribution were Innovation ~ 60%, Finance ~ 34%, Marketing ~ 5% and Sustainable Business <1%.


So that Torin recommended the priority of critical factors to be Marketing, Innovation, Sustainable Business and Finance.  He also shared some failure startup cases that were missing Marketing, Finance and Sustainability.  Lastly, he concluded that startup had no ending unless you gave up.  Another important point was to set the stop loss and return of investment (ROI), as well as your patent technologies.


The fourth speaker was Ir. Peter Si (Project Manager, IVE Engineering Discipline In-service Training) and he presented the topic “The roles of In-service Training for Hong Kong Industry”.  In the beginning, he briefed Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) which was a member of the Vocational Training Council (VTC).  


Then Ir. Peter Si introduced the “In-service Training” which provided an array of part-time training programmes to working adults to enhance their professional capabilities to meet the ever-changing needs of the engineering field.  Moreover, their programme was market-oriented in part-time mode including Professional Diploma, Professional Certificate, short course and tailor made in-house corporate training programmes.  The following diagram showed some examples (Left photo was BIM – Building Information Modelling which was a hot topic in construction field!)


Finally, Ir. Peter Si introduced the Engineering Training Subsidy Scheme (ETSS).  The successful applicants would be refunded upto 60% of the tuition fees and the ceiling upto HK$45,000 per person!!!


The fifth speaker was Dr. CM Wong (工聯會業餘進修中心) and his topic related to National Vocational Qualification (國家職業資格).


Firstly, Dr. Wong briefed the characteristics of this kind of qualification.  It was separated into Professional level and Technical level and had 151 items totally.  Professional level was related to public and personal safety and Technical level was for benchmarking / reference.  For more information, please visit the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security of the People’s Republic of China at http://www.mohrss.gov.cn/ .


Finally, Dr. Wong said the national examination had introduced into Hong Kong since 2004 and it aimed to encourage Hong Kong people working in the mainland and understand more about China.  


The second part of seminar was industry sharing.
Dr. YC Chau was the sixth speaker and he shared his “Life-long Learning”.  He firstly showed some statistic from Hong Kong and USA and found that the income was the function of education level and experience.  Then he shared his career 3P model from Profession (就業), Professionalism (敬業) and Professional (專業).


Dr. YC Chau said you must be a tree rather than a grass. Then he told us the most terrible thing was that someone smarter / superior than you and worked harder than you! (世界上最恐怖的事是比你優秀的人比你還努力!)  Therefore, you should never stop learning.  


Then he shared his career path and explained the Triangle of Success “ASK” that was Attitudes, Skills and Knowledge.  


Dr. YC Chau shared his “Introspection”.  It was very meaningful.  He also said your future would be appreciated your hard working now.  Then he quoted Albert Einstein that “Once you stop learning, you start dying”.  At the end, Dr. Chau concluded that Academic record was past, Position was existing but Learning ability represented Future! (學歷代表過去; 職位代表今天; 學習能力代表未來.)


Mr. Vincent Fung (Executive Director, Kin Yat Holdings) was the seventh speaker and he would like to share his story to us.  He said manufacturing industry was his “Best School” for lifetime learning.  Firsly, he briefed the manufacturing industry in Hong Kong in 70s. He graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic College with Diploma in PIE in late 70s.  In late 80s, industry park in China established under open policy.  


Then Mr. Vincent Fung briefed his Lifelong Learning Journey which led by the evolution of product and improvement of manufacturing.  


Lastly, he used Bruce Lee statement as conclusion that “Learning is never cumulative; it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.”


Dr. Jackson Tang was the last speaker and his topic entitled “Continuous Learning vs Conventional Career Path Development”.  He shared that his academic performance was not satisfactory during HKCEE and then joined VTC (previous called TI).  Then he further studied in UK (Portsmouth) and got the first honor degree.  After that he studied MPhil and PhD. 


After that he shared his career path and he was still struggling. 


Finally, he shared his 2nd startup projects and joined Science Park Incubation scheme successfully.


After that panel discussion was performed and I record some interest statement below.
i)                    國家計劃出的是非常合理, 但執行起來遇到少少困難. (Dr. CM Wong)
ii)                  理想好性感, 現實好骨感. (Dr. YC Chau)

The 1st Meeting of the Extenics Internationalization 2017 (第一屆可拓學國際化會議)

The 1st Meeting of the Extenics Internationalization 2017 (第一屆可拓學國際化會議) was organized by Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, GDUT (廣東工業大學可拓學與創新方法研究所) from 4 to 5 Jan 2017.  The two days meeting aimed to discuss how to promote the Extenics from Hong Kong to International.  We invited Prof. Lorna Uden (羅娜·尤登) (Staffordshire University, UK), Dr. KS Chin (錢桂生) (City University of Hong Kong), Mr. Victor Chiu (趙仲凱) (Academic Director, Baby First) and Ms. Hemans Leung (梁佩英) (Operations Director, Baby First), as well as Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) and Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) (where I represented Hong Kong Science and Technology Park).  We took a photo in front of the Guangdong University of Technology (廣東工業大學).  


We met in the meeting room and started to discuss this topic. 


In the beginning, Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) gave a welcome speech and introduced Prof. Cai Wen’s achievement since the first paper had been published in 1983.  Then the Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, GDUT established in 1986 (former named 物元分析研究所).  After that we had a big team to research on the Extenics through Extenics Society, Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence (中國人工智能學會可拓學專業委員會).  Now we needed to promote to international communities so as to let foreign people to learn Chinese original theory.


Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) was the first speaker and he introduced the recently Entenics Internationalization and Socialization.  Firstly, Prof. Cai introduced some visiting scholars, they come from India, Romania, USA, to study Extenics in GDUT.  The Professor from USA published Prof. Cai Wen’s book in English named “Extenics: Theory, Method and Application” in USA in 2013.


One of great achievements was the research with Prof. Luigi Vladareanu for robotic that won Gold Medal in the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, (the largest of its kind in the world) in 2014!


For socialization, Chinese scholars performed seminars and trainings in different provinces from 2014 to 2016.  The training course included in-house for industry in Zhongshan (中山) and Hong Kong.  Moreover, the Extenics Innovation Method introduced to many primary and secondary schools in China.


After that Prof. Cai Wen briefed the achievement in Extenics included Robotic application, shoes product innovation design, machine design, extenics strategy generation system, Extenics Innovation Four Steps application for new product development, and many media reporting.  

The second speaker was Prof. Lorna Uden (羅娜·尤登) (Staffordshire University, UK) and she shared her research interests.  She mainly taught Innovation and made people more creative and smart.  Her research related to Big Data.  Prof. Uden would like to make learning exciting and interest for student so as to teach student “How to think, How to learn and How to smart!”


I was the third speaker and my topic was “Extenics Promotion Planning & Strategy”. Firstly, I reviewed the activities about Extenics that I attended in China and arranged in Hong Kong in 2016.  I achieved the Extenics Level 1 certificate and received the Outstanding Contribution on Promoting Extenics Award (I am one of seven awardees).


Then I analyzed the difficulty levels among “Basic-element theory”, “Extension set theory” and “Extension logic”.  The first two items could be included in seminar and training but the last item should be in university research such as AI and Robotic.  


Finally, I proposed to use Hong Kong Society for Quality as a bridge to link with Chinese Alliance (WACQ) and then through ANQ for Asia, finally, promoting to ASQ partners for the Worldwide.  


Dr. KS Chin (CityU) was the fourth speaker and his topic named “Implementation of Innovation: Realizing Extenics”.  Dr. Chin said “Innovation is a Global Trend”.  However, the success rate was factually 2% or less. So it was a high risk activity!


Then Dr. Chin said that Extenics is a proven vehicle to generate innovative ideas.  Innovation management / system were the constant search for a fresh or novel approach to every aspect of running the business.  However, a new knowledge required a successful organization of efforts, an effective process and a perfect management system; so as to realize Extenics.  


Therefore, Dr. KS Chin proposed an organizational-wide OIM implementation framework (Organization Innovation Management – OIM) as example and quoted my case study named “Integration of Quality and Innovation Management”.  Finally, Dr. Chin concluded to employ Organization-wide Implementation and Sustainability would be realizing Extenics.


Mr. Victor Chiu (趙仲凱) (Academic Director, Baby First) and Ms. Hemans Leung (梁佩英) (Operations Director, Baby First) were the fifth and sixth speakers.  Firstly, Mr. Victor Chiu introduced their business which was mainly focused on family education and child care education (幼兒/少兒).  


He faced a problem about how to be creative for a long time.  He thought that Innovation, Creativity and Imagination should be connected.  


Then Mr. Victor Chiu briefed the Wisdom Model which started from “Perception” to “Logic” and then to “Creativity”.  How to achieve it?  He found that the Extenics gave him the solution!


After that he used Chinese Dragon as example to demonstrate the creativity through imagination.


Finally, Ms. Hemans Leung briefed the first in-house Extenics Innovation Four Step Method workshop performed by Prof. Cai Wen in Baby First in Hong Kong.  Moreover, a short video recorded Prof. Cai’s workshop for sharing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYJJ9tJgGDk.  At the end, Ms. Hemans Leung proposed to develop a Child Care Education material, general book publication, arrangement of training course and members exchanging activities.  


After this seminar, we took a group photo for memory.


Dr. Chin and I took a photo with Prof. Cai and Prof. Yang in front of the core value of Extenics“拓、嚴、謙、信” (Extension, Severe, Modest & Integrity).  


Before the next session, Dr. Chin and I took a photo in front of the Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, GDUT (廣東工業大學可拓學與創新方法研究所) and Extenics Society, Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence (中國人工智能學會可拓學專業委員會).


I visited Prof. Cai Wen’s office (Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods - Honorary Director office). 


I also visited Prof. Yang Chunyan’s office (Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods - Director office). 


In the show room, many publications, IP, awards, theses as well as publications were demonstrated.  The oldest publication was the book in the top right one.


After that we discussed the following plan as follows:


i)                    For general promotion, Mr. Victor Chiu proposed to public a book which related Extenics concept for Children in Hong Kong and announced during Book Exhibition in July 2017.
ii)                  Ms. Hemans Leung suggested to arrange an announcement event for alliance and invited different industries partners together on 1 April 2017 (temporary) and they could find some media for help.
iii)                We draft some themes such as “Quality Innovation˙Education” / “Extenics Innovation – Quality and Education” / “Quality Innovation – Extenics and Education”, etc. It needed to discuss with industrial expert again (said consult Dr. Aaron Tong).
iv)                Prof. Cai Wen suggested to arrange the Four-Region Free Trade Area across the Straights (兩岸四地) seminar included China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan and temporarily held from 23-25 Jun 2017.  Dr. KS Chin said it could be arranged a study mission.
v)                  Lotto would give a talk to 5 universities in Hong Kong and the first two of them (CityU and PolyU) were confirmed in Feb and Mar 2017 for promoting Extenics Innovation Method.  Moreover, he would like to contact Academy of Science of Hong Kong and HKPC.
vi)                Dr. KS Chin agreed to provide venue for the announcement activities / seminar in CityU on 1 April 2017 and he was responsible for research cooperation information such as ITF/UGC/SME funding website and research student exchange plan.  

Finally, we took a group photo in front of the Research Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, GDUT.


In the last half day, we visited Guangzhou old city and gardens.


Sculpture of the Five Rams Legend


The sound level and temperature monitoring panels were observed in public area / garden.  It is a very good control mechanism!


We took a photo during lunch and dinner for memory.
