Innovation consists of technological invention and economic exploitation. Arts and natural sciences considerably contribute to invention whereas economics and management deal with the exploitation aspect of innovation. In creating artifacts for useful purposes, engineering covers both invention and exploitation. Different types of innovation are considered with respect to design rules and business cases. The challenge of finding reasonable paths of innovation is illustrated by industrial shortcomings. Scientific approaches in manufacturing in general and especially in design to avoid these shortcomings are denominated and analyzed. Author: G. Seliger, Department of Assembly Technology and Factory Management, Institute for MachineTools and Factory Management, Technical University Berlin, Germany. CIRP 2001 paper.
