BPO's research is more productive. The BPC is one time use mechanics, so any time invested is wasted when it's done. You can still research for Tech II of course, but that is best achieved with copies of an unresearched BPO. ME and PE make no difference here, with no effect on the end result.
A Tech I BPC is basically just a photocopy, and Tech II BPCs are photocopies with writing in the margins and scrawled diagrams and material lists to assist with the creation of the Tech II item. Why any of that is necessary after the hundredth time is anyone's guess.
