  • Reverse engineering finds huge application in
    bringing innovation in the development of
    mechanical components. Engineers often adopt the
    RE technique to determine flaws in the existing
    design or to develop better knowledge about the
    component design. While there have been several
    allegations that there has been more misuse of
    reverse engineering to study competitor products,
    there are reasons why reverse engineering in
    organizations should be promoted to generate
    ideas that can be applied for innovation. For
    manufacturing firms, reverse engineering
    mechanical components can turn out to be
    economically fruitful, while also providing end
    customer with a better product thus creating a
    win-win situation for both.

  • Reverse engineering plays a crucial role towards
    the road to innovation in product design.
    Determining underlying importance of each element
    in a particular component, engineers can figure
    out ways to improve the design further or rather
    determine design alternatives that are
    cost-effective, and are also better in terms of
    its functionally.
  • With the required design information, innovative
    ideas can be encouraged and a competitive and
    efficient product can be materialized.

Rethinking About the Manufacturing Processes

  • The idea to uncover the science and technology
    laid behind a specific mechanical component can
    also push to bring innovation in the
    manufacturing processes also.
  • Evaluating the design for manufacturing defects
    or the investment of time required for production
    could lead towards rethinking the steps and
    processes involved in manufacturing. Bringing a
    change in a particular process or tool to avoid
    errors and defects can significantly help in
    reducing the time-to-market the product.

Optimizing Performance And Strength

  • The process of reverse engineering also allows
    engineers to improve the performance and strength
    of the existing design. For components that fail
    frequently, RE proves to be extremely beneficial
    approach to identify design errors or
    miscalculations that can be eliminated
    successfully. By dismantling the equipment or
    assembly, one can gain enough information to
    implement optimization techniques for weight
    reduction and gain subsequent cost saving
    advantage. Through a separate analysis of
    individual elements of the assembly, critical
    regions requiring modification in the design can
    be identified.

Gaining Better Knowledge

  • For engineers, design is a continuous learning
    process and RE is just the right tool to add
    substantial knowledge about the product
    functioning and science that works behind it.
  • Performing reverse engineering is most common in
    industries equipped with research and development
    divisions to fuel innovation and identify
    information that can be utilized for the
    development of other products as well.

  • One of the prominent features of reverse
    engineering is it enables designers to generate
    patentable ideas, gaining a reputable position
    for themselves and the organization.
  • Although, the process of RE might have been
    initiated by examining competitor product, the
    ongoing knowledge gaining process will assist
    designers and engineers to think out of the box.
    The end results could be an innovative idea that
    could be patented followed by its mass production
    to the targeted community.
