Albeit the fact that we have to take good care of the technology that surrounds us and appreciate the technological advancements that make our lives easier and better to live, we take them all for granted, only for us to realize that what we are doing is wrong when they start ceasing to function. And what we notice even less is the engineering design process that is behind the structure and the functionality of the technology that surrounds us by which dedicated and determined entrepreneurs, inventors and even engineers have been working all their life just to bring us the product we are enjoying and making the most use of.
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. It has been suggested as well that this particular type of effect has already been see on the side of the animal kingdom and on the part of the technological development for 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. If you are wondering why this kind of thing happened, well, that is due to the fact that there was a leap in learning and it happened across the board therefore, giving people breakthrough moments 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.
One thing about the engineering design process that we want you to know about is that it actually starts by identifying the need for a product and then, this is followed by research regarding its application and possible benefits as well. If all the things that must be done first were completed, it is not right to proceed to the next step which is the drawing up of the concept so that it will be realized prior to it getting sent to a commercial sector and present it to them in which the product can get the chance of getting manufactured and also, implemented.
