Japan completed its acquisition of western technologies in 1990, however, industries that emerged through the process are facing zero growth now. The industries now need FR1: Develop new products, in addition to FR2: Maintain conventional products. On the other hand, in hiring new graduates from universities, such skills of DP1: Expertise knowledge in engineering, and DP2: Basic academic and management skills (leadership, loyalty, communication skills, and so on) have been valued. Students, on the other hand, are judged by ambiguous variables like PV1: School reputation and PV2: Interview, and receive job offers a year before graduation. This process, when viewed as a design process, is clearly coupled with both DP1 and DP2 required for both FR1 and FR2. The two DPs are effective for FR2 and have been proved successful, however, DP1 alone sometimes fails to meet FR1. The situation led to requiring DP1’: Abduction and demonstration skills to be judged by PV1’: Joint research or internship, a hiring system close to the western style. FRs are then uncoupled and DP1’ may allow finding a student suited for FR1, however, the universities are not ready to teach DP1’ to the students.
