Results of the study showed that, using cost benefit ratio analysis, it was found that there was a significant increase in financial benefits; from production and operational point of views there were a significant product quality improvement (i.e., production cost savings with the modification of press machines, among other things in terms of production time and increasing production capacity); innovation and product variety seemed to be of importance to fill a wide open market opportunities; and manufacturing modified tile roof machine provided a positive impact on rural incomes and employment.
