There are plenty of examples where SMEs have successfully incorporated industrial design into their businesses. RDS project aims to sketch a design strategy for Hong Kong manufacturing SMEs and study the effective usage of design and its adoption at strategic level in the manufacturing sector. By understanding the 50 successful cases and using the tools, the local manufacturing SMEs will grasp how to use design strategy to create comparative advantages they currently lack. Hong Kong manufacturing SMEs at the stage of ODM and OBM will beneﬁt by upgrading to OSM. The RDS project will cover a research study and research report on 50 successful cases of using design strategy. A full-day dissemina-tion conference during the Business of Design Week 2018 (December) are part of this project’s way to disseminate the research ﬁndings and create platform for invited parties to explore future collaborations. The ﬁndings and insights of research study will be published and shared at the launching ceremony of guidebook with the target audience (in 2019).
項目會研究50個運用設計策略的成功案例研究及研究報告，並將於設計營商周2018 (12月) 舉辦全日的推廣研討會，推廣相關研究， 既能發放研究調查結果，又能創建平台以邀請各方探討未來合作機會。研究成果及見解將於2019年指南發布會發布予目標觀眾分享。
