Abstract

It is a paradox that wide and intensive activities in the field of product development and design in the course of more than 30 years has produced situation that existing consensus about the lack of new products. The article joins efforts to discover the reasons for this situation and to establish methodology for prediction courses of product development based on TRIZ methodology. The first part of the article contains an analysis of product development and design efforts in the past time in connection with social and economic circumstances, discoveries and important inventions. The trends of actual product development and design methodology are also analyzed. The second part of this work attempts to identify main postulates, potentials and forces which cause product development expansion. In the past a few of those factors and their results have been identified. For the future, new power sources based on atomic fusion and the nanotechnologies are identified as the main “motors” for locomotion of evolutionary or revolutionary product development.
