There is a high degree of similarities between LM and INPD factors.
In the third set of hypotheses (H37-H41), the differences between NPD performances for LM companies utilizing INPD and CM companies using SNPD are tested.
H37: By utilizing INPD, LM companies are able to design new products with fewer design changes than CM companies using SNPD.
H40: By utilizing INPD, LM companies are able to design new products with less development cost than CM companies using SNPD.
H41: By utilizing INPD, LM companies are able to design new products with less manufacturing cost than CM companies using SNPD.
In addition to general organization and managerial profile items, the survey contained 36 paired items regarding similarities between CM and SNPD, as well as between LM and INPD factors.
Tables 3 and 4 show the result of similarities between CM and SNPD, as well as between LM and INPD.
Table 4 also shows that overall the respondents agreed with the statements regarding similarities between LM and INPD factors.
For H3, the mean ratings for LM and INPD are respectively 4.
The last column of Tables 3 and 4 show the correlation coefficient between CM and corresponding SNPD and the correlation coefficient between LM and corresponding INPD factors.
The performance hypotheses (H37-H41) state that by utilizing INPD, LM companies are able to design new products with fewer design changes, faster, more often, with less development cost, and less manufacturing cost than CM companies using SNPD.
