On the Origin of Products: The Evolution of Product Innovation and Design

Book Description

In this new work, Arthur O. Eger and Huub Ehlhardt present a ' of Product Evolution'. They challenge the popular notion that we owe the availability of products solely to genius inventors. Instead, they present arguments that show that a process of variation, selection, and accumulation of 'know-how' (to make) and 'know-what' (function to realize) provide an explanation for the emergence of new types of products and their subsequent development into families of advanced versions. This employs a product evolution diagram as an analytical to reconstruct the development history of a product family and picture it as a narrative. The authors describe the relevant literature and case studies to place their in context. The 'Product Phases ' is used to create predictions on the most likely next step in the evolution of a product, offering practical tools for those involved in new product development.
