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. We do not only have the tendency of taking for granted the technology around us, we also tend to notice the engineering design process behind it, something that dedicate engineers, entrepreneurs, and even inventors work for years just to bring the products that we are enjoying now.
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. We want you to know as well that this is a kind of effect that has been seen and witnessed happening in the animal kingdom and in the technological advancement of the human species as well. You can actually say that this kind of trend can be seen when there are two or more people who are not connected with one another, come up with the same and exact concept at the same time as well.
There are so many cases of this particular type of trend which happened in the distant past like the case of the invention of the telephone in which many believe it was Alexander Graham Bell who first designed and created it while many also consider the possibility of Antonio Meucci being the discoverer of it, with how things happened in the same year. 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. With regards to why Alexander Graham Bell was named as the Father of the Telephone is because of the very reason that the patent application he submitted showed great and skilled engineering design.
Talking about engineering design process, if there is one thing that we want you to know about it, that would be the fact that it begins with the identification of the need for the product and this will be followed by researching things regarding the application as well as the potential benefits of it. 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.
