The effective utilization of existing technologies process in small and medium-sized enterprises was analyzed from the viewpoint of recombinant capabilities, taking the case of companies participating in the aircraft-related materials research group sponsored by Gifu Prefecture, Japan. SMEs with limited resources need to be efficient at improving existing technologies and reuse when stimulated by external knowledge. In addition, it is worth proceeding to the re-creation of new technologies and existing technologies, which are expensive. In an environment successfully achieving this recombination of technology, the agent realizing the recombination is people. As a consequence, staff members at SMEs do not need to have the skills of strategic staff that are expected in large companies. Alternate functions act on the unique internal processes, which affect the quality of the recombination results.
