The author suggests that standardization
The passage specifies that standardization provides an initial advantage over adaptation. We can infer that after some time has passed, this situation may change and adaptation may become more advantageous than standardization.
The passage implies that the benefits of adaptation may outweigh the benefits of standardization over time, but we cannot conclude that the benefits of standardization (lower costs and increased production) expire with time.
Although the passage implies that the benefits of adaptation may outweigh the benefits of standardization over time, we cannot infer that the low costs of standardization change over time.
The passage states that standardization provides a company with an initial competitive advantage over another company which uses adaptation. This does not imply that such companies are overall more competitive than their counterparts.
Since the passage states that standardization gives a company an initial advantage over adaptation, we can only infer that standardization is more beneficial in the short-term.
