A Proposed Method for Reliable Innovation
While there are many helpful tools and techniques for business and technical analysis, there are few, if any, methods for creating robust new product ideas. This paper presents a methodology that combines research and synthesis in an iterative cycle with a cross-disciplinary team to reliably define new product innovations. Several examples from student and professional work are employed to illustrate the method. This session also discusses Prof. Conley's current research into incorporating design theory and methods throughout the Illinois Institute of Technology's undergraduate engineering curriculum.
