Cumulative Experience and Expertise

To a very great degree today, product design development relies on input form engineers about existing projects. This input is incorporated into increasingly sophisticated engineering software programs, whether CAD or otherwise, so that they effectively become part of a database that will help to steer and guide engineers in all subsequent product design and development. The system as it stands means that experiences quickly filter into common use and this means faster progress and fewer mistakes.

Ultimately, this aspect of engineering progress means that product design and development is no longer the game of human assumption that it once was. All projects are now the result of careful analysis and have become physics based scientific projects. Practically, there could be no better situation. The use of modern computer programs doesn't only help with the scientific/mechanical side of design either.

Virtual Prototyping and Product Design and Development

Virtual prototyping is obviously a great way of working out design flaws and rendering a project ultra safe before it reaches the physical prototype stage, but there's more! It is now far easier to combine innovation and great design with great looks too. Virtual prototyping means that design teams can easily, and inexpensively, perfect virtual prototypes until the reach a product that looks as good as it can get.

This means that product design and development has increasingly more to offer the computer. We can now all expect no only superb design and superior performance, but exceptional good looks in the products we buy too. These benefits work both ways. The public is willing to pay more for better products, and companies tend to sell more, and so make more profit.
