Abstract

Many traditional products on the market today require significant improvements in their designs and production technology. The paper illustrates the role of today’s designers in creating novel concepts and the importance of knowing the relevant trends of evolution of industrial products (as engineering systems) in accordance with the “Axiom of Ideality”. A systematic approach of the ways of achieving best innovations is offered. Descriptions of these trends of new products characterized by high performance parameters are presented. Several conclusions highlight the main points of the paper. It is revealed that the study of conceptual developments in design products is of great practical importance today.
