Reflecting the success of joint R&D over the past 10 years, Kubota has filed many industrial property right applications, of which approximately 1,229 industrial properties are open for the public and available.

Joint Development Flow

The style and flow of joint development usually vary depending on the relationship with the partner, target market, and desired effects.
Results of joint development include products, technologies, solutions, information, and industrial property rights, which will add functions, reduce costs, modify properties, enhance productivity, improve quality and performance, and develop applications. A typical joint development flow to achieve these results is shown below.
