Currently, I am doing a research on the manufacturing world of many companies that are difficult to see, such as how the products around you are made. Specifically, taking Apple Inc., one of GAFA, as an example, I am elucidating the actual status of how many companies around the world cooperate to create one product. In addition to lectures on basic knowledge, I hope to provide students with learning opportunities that can only be obtained at university.
