When shifting demographics, challenging supply chain dynamics and changing technologies erode product profitability, companies must look for new sources of revenue. High performing organizations look not just to entering new geographies, but to ways in which they can evolve established products and technologies to address as-of-yet unmet needs in new or adjacent markets.

Applying Inventive Principles to Resolve Contradictions

Much of innovation involves avoiding making engineering trade-offs. This means resolving a technical contradiction (i.e. something must be made stronger, but lighter; faster, but more fuel efficient; harder, but flexible).  These technical contradictions arise when one parameter (i.e. power) is improved but then negatively impacts another parameter (i.e. weight).

Discovering Strategic Innovations through Tactical Research

The process of innovation often involves creating applications for new technologies that originate outside of a specific industry.  This makes the discovery process challenging, especially when new technologies emerge in industries that, on the surface, bear no similarities or synergies to the need at hand.

Tech-Clarity, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in analyzing the true business value of software technology and services, has released a new white paper detailing the challenges and benefits of knowledge-enabling technical professionals in order to inform decision-making.


EXCLUSIVE WEB EVENT: Measuring the value of knowledge-based product decisions

Tech-Clarity webcastInnovation and efficiency top every manufacturer’s agenda. Critical to an organization’s ability to more rapidly deliver better and more profitable products is the ability to give engineers and technical professionals access to the knowledge they need in order to make informed product decisions.

This is no small challenge given the growing complexity of products, the overwhelming volume of information required to make the right decisions, and the failure of traditional tools to make relevant knowledge available to product development teams.
