Some specializations by country remain
The specializations by country that remain are linked to 2 domains:
- Regulations, tax system, local norms which are imposed by the local authorities.
- The fundamentals of Culture:
language, dietary habits, personal image (in the USA, you
need to have a big car or a big house to be well viewed)
How do we personalize the Products and Services?
To personalize Goods, the most effective technique consists in isolating the parts that can be personalized as Components, so that the architecture of the Goods and most of the pieces are reusable and that assembling the specific parts is easy.To personalize Operational Information,
- we have to begin by translating the language. In view of the differences in concept in the different cultures, a literal translation is not always enough: we need to know how to adapt the Information.
- We also have to try to locally produce the
information that is only used locally. It is not always
possible: for example, satellites can provide weather
information that is only used locally.
To personalize Information for the Model, we have to do as for Goods, that is to say build in the form of components to isolate the local part and play with the language.
To personalize the Services, there is less pressure as Services are generally executed locally: only the Service Model has to be built in component form, as described above, to adapt language, taxation and regulation factors.
