||Location (Not Relevant: All application and solutions development work is conducted at Hangzhou, China. Thus geographical location is not a differentiator for R&D Department at Hangzhou Advanced Intelligent Maintenance Systems Co., Ltd. and does not make any material difference to the way processes are applied by the OU.)
Customer (Not Relevant: All the customers for the OU are related to the domain involving operational data analysis for machines and equipment. Hence the customer type is not a differentiator with regards to process execution.)
