These plans require information and finance management techniques to be practicalized, which can both improve management efficiency and enhance Taiwan’s competitiveness. Thus, fostering professionals on information and finance management is the prior work should be done.

The government is carrying out plans such as industrial automation and management system informatization in order to accelerate firm’s speed of computerized management. This can effectively reduce production cost, enhance the service quality, and then make Taiwan a more competitive country. From the above-mentioned, it is obvious that fostering advanced information and finance management elites is the keystone of industrial management automation in future days.
