Preview

The rise and fall of photographic industry is analyzed in the light of Product Portfolio Management to indicate the appropriate attitude of a manufacturing company. A photographic company at its golden age was characterized by a strong technical domain, large scale to afford all the necessary research activities including fundamental research with photographic science, analysis of the present state and future possibility of products, disciplined projects for development of new products with quantitative plans, and efficient, precise, and powerful execution of research activities, indicating what a manufacturing company should be. It is also noted that the way to develop new products is quite different from that to look for new seeds that will support a manufacturing company in the future.

Keywords: Product Portfolio Management; technical domain; photographic industry; manufacturing company
