Offshore Development NEC Soft Cop Has 2 Billion Loss
This news was picked up by the magazine company called Niikei computer. NEC Soft Cop has failed offshore development in China, And then they had enormous loss in 2 billion yen.
As long as the author knows, it is not only NEC Soft but also other company has such experiences of case failed. Officers of IT vendors talk about it speak secretly, but it is usually thing looked from my side. The reason is "Tacit understanding" which is Japanese costom of Development commission. Person no matter how excellent technology in China and India can not develop high quality product with ambiguous requirments definition and design document. They can get some benefit by number of engineer and time because they contract their job by man-month unit price of order. Even just waiting or doing by themself untill accurate and detailed work instructions. That is fully natural providence, no body can not blame such circumstances. Western IT vendors dont do such same mistakes, Japan shouldnt do hide such failled case. In that sense, NEC Soft should be evaluate by frankly published althouogh a duty to disclose.
According to the NEC Soft, there are three reasons.
(1)The original schedule was tough.
(2)Development framework as a basis for development was inadequate.
(3)System deficiencies that the use of program components.
They don't blame the chinese vendor at all, it means they admit some trouble to system and how to request to them. Exactly in indeed domestic situation, they ask to subcontracting company even tight schedule. They did order same to Chinese company like Japanese without strict management. Project Manager might have direct responsibility for it, but there were some problem as structure and management mechanisms of compnay.
Anyway if NEC group learn something from this failed case, they can have advantage for strengthen the competitiveness of the future. So they need to consider measures to prevent recurrence as lessons learned in the group to share.

A Smith''s free-nonintervention policy at eightennth centry is belived that everyone can be become happy. Even if people act for self-centered, the society can keep the establishment by market mechanism. And Smith called it "Invisible hand of God". But actuly that free-nonintervention policy generate the big social issue like recurrent depression and huge gap between the rich and the poor. How we resolve such issues.
Two resolution is considered. The first one is modify or reform capitalism, the second one is deny capitalism and then generate the new socialist society. Keynes choosed modifed capitalism and Marx choosed Socialism.
Marx proved by his book called "capital" about how capitalism system has incoherence institution. It is natural thing that for people to break the capitalism system and try to generate new system, if "recurrent depression" and "huge gap between the rich and the poor" are happen by the reason of capitalism system. Threfore the new system called Socialism was generated in 19 century to make people happy by resolveing paradox of capitalism. People believe that they realize free and equality society without depression and poor by Socialism. And then at 1927, it was happen Rossia revolution, Soviet socialist state was generated firstly in the world. And the grand experiment of the centry started that Socialism can make people happier than Capitalizm.
The feature of Socialism is three point. Firstly goverment change national property(land and factory) from private property. It meens that it try to remove capitalist to promote the equality of income distribution for resorving bankruptcies and unemployment issue. You can image that all workers are public employee. Secondly goverment try to handle planned economy by themself. They can control something how many we make and what we make and how much we sold. threfore they can avoid depression and inflation. Thrd people should pursue social benefit not private profit. Threfore they can recover the delight of working.
Was The Realization Of Socialism( example of Former Soviet Union )
People live in Capitalizm society have a lot of negative image about Socializm. But Socializm society also has some positive point like no Rich-poor gap and no depression and no unemployment, no infrastructure and extensive social welfare and cheap public fare.
Why Was Soviet Union Collapse
Socialism exactly had overcomed the lack of Capitalizm. Nevertheless Why Socialism not go well. In 1991 Soviet Union was collapsed by bellow next three reason.
1.Falling economic growth rate
Marx thought that people would work with delight for everyone even if they make the society to pursue social benefit not for private benefit. But actualy worker's motivation was so lower. It is not strange thing that there are so many worker who don't try to work seriously if their salary is not change wherther they work hard or not. Centrlized planned economy generate a huge bureaucracy system, it makes them stagnant innovation and significant inefficiency.
2.Suppression of Political Freedom
Essence of freedom is that we can object against the power of the state. We can say that country is free as we have the freedom to criticize power.
