Integrated Report 2021(For the year ended December 31, 2020)

Collaborations between Industry and Academia to Design “Meaning”Designing a Method for Leveraging the Design Development Process in MarketingFrom our corporate mission of creating Kando, we are working together with cutting-edge research institutes in Japan and abroad in a collabora-tive effort between industry and academia. This research matches Yamaha Motor’s experience and accumulated “ART” with science to ask what kind of Kando resonates with people’s hearts and society and what must be done to create it. This enables us to not only design what brings happiness to people and society from the core but also allows us to design new value from possibilities that people are still not aware of. From these endeavors, we gain an understanding of what holds “new meaning” for customers and the crucial elements for creating experi-ential value and happiness for the next generation.Yamaha VR MarinaThrough a unique approach, we are moving forward with the research and implementation of our Design DX to innovate the processes in product development under the “Y-DX2: Strengthen the Present” action theme.We employed digital technology to launch the Yamaha VR Marina, a virtual showroom that we unveiled at the Japan International Boat Show in April 2020.
