GARCIA HERNANDEZ, Yessica; MENDOZA MOHENO, Jessica  e  PEREZ HERNANDEZ, Carla Carolina. Measurement of absorption capacities in the manufacturing industry. Investig. adm. [online]. 2020, vol.49, n.126, 12603.  Epub 11-Set-2020. ISSN 2448-7678.

The aim is to analyze the level of development of the absorption capacities in the manufacturing industry in order to identify whether there are significant differences according to the subsector. An empirical study through the quantitative method was carried out with data of ESIDET (2014). From the multivariate factorial and statistical analysis of the cluster the results show five groups of manufacturing sectors. One relevant finding is that there are different levels of absorption capacity (acquisition, assimilation, transformation and exploitation) according to the subsector. The main contribution of this study is the characterization of the manufacturing industry in terms of the absorption capacity, which may be useful for the design of public policies to facilitate the generation of knowledge in the industry. The main limitation of the research is that data from the formal economy are taken up, the originality lies in the absence of previous studies in the analyzed context.
