When technology was first discovered, we were so eager to develop it and make it grow so that the next generation will be able to make the most use of it however, as time passes by, and as we see the many different technological advancements surrounding us, we tend to take them all for granted and we only stop once we have noticed that it already ceased functioning. That is not the only thing that tend to happen as we also have the tendency of not noticing the engineering design process that created the technology that we have today, in which dedicated and competent inventors, engineers, and also, entrepreneurs put their best foot forward.
It has been said that there is a shooting effect in place if a learning curve happens to be spontaneously taking the same route in parts of the world that are not connected with each other. This kind of effect has been witnessed in the animal kingdom and also, in the technological development of the human species. This kind of trend can be spotted whenever there are two or more people who are not connected in any way come up with the same concept at the same time as well.
If you want to know about a particular situation wherein this kind of thing happened, one very good example that we can give you is the creation of the telephone in which, according to history book, it was the work of Alexander Graham Bell however, many also believe that it was Antonio Meucci who first designed the very first telephone. It seems that there was actually a leap in learning which happened across the board, giving many people a breakthrough moment at the same time. As for the reason why Alexander Graham Bell was the one named as the first discovered of the telephone is because the patent application he had showed skilled and expertly crafted engineering design.
When it comes to engineering design process, there are so many things that you have to know about it such as the fact that this process begins by identifying the need for a products which will then be followed by research in terms of its application and also, potential benefits. Once all these things are done, the next thing to do is for the concept to be drawn up as this is the way for it to be realized prior to presenting it to a commercial sector where they can by manufactured and implemented as well.
