What trends can engineers expect to see through 2017?
While nuances may exist between specific industry verticals, a number of key
trends have emerged that every engineering professional should know.
The Hollywood Model and open
innovation: Modern research and development
practices involve collaboration between the sponsoring organization(manufacturer or
other project underwriter), suppliers,consultants, engineering services firms,
and free agent engineers.
These project teams, which integrate regular employees as well as external engineers,
are assembled and brought together for the life of the project, similar to the
movie studios produce films—as opposed to decades ago, when all of the actors were
direct employees of themovie studios. This results in the practice of open
means the involvement of contributors beyond the regular employees of the
sponsoring organization in the discovery and creation process, avoiding the so-called “not invented here”
