NEC Assigns 25% Of Work Force To Combat Y2K
Up to 30,000 employees, or 25% of the group work force, including systems engineers and maintenance and sales personnel, will be at their desks on Jan. 1, 2000 to respond to possible Y2K trouble, NEC Corp. said Thursday.
The company has decided to run a crisis center between November, 1999 and March, 2000 under the command of company president Koji Nishigaki. The center will manage all Y2K information for both NEC group companies and clients. NEC hopes this arrangement will expedite Y2K solutions.
NEC will also stock up on parts and materials at maintenance centers and streamline parts/material distribution systems between the centers to prepare for possible computer problems.
