This led to an expanding market and the use of the personal computer in a variety of applications, ranging from word processing, information storage, and accounting to instruction and data acquisition. The video cassette recorder, fiber-optics cable, compact disc player, microwave oven, and the Apple iPod and iPhone represent new products that were developed in recent years with possible opportunities and expanding markets in mind. The industry today is very dynamic and is always on the lookout for opportunities where the available technical know-how can be used effectively to develop new ideas, leading to new products and systems.

Let us follow a typical engineering undertaking from the initial recognition of a need for a particular item or process to its final implementation. 1 Need or Opportunity Defining a need or opportunity is always the first step in an engineering undertaking because it provides the impetus to develop a product or system. Need refers to a specific requirement and implies that a suitable item is not available and must be developed for the desired purpose. The need for a given item may be felt at various levels, ranging from the consumer and the retailer to the industry itself, and may involve developing a new system or modifying and improving existing ones.

6 Need for Optimization It is no longer sufficient to develop a workable system that performs the desired task while staying within the constraints imposed by safety, environmental, economic, and other such considerations. Due to the growing worldwide competition and need to increase efficiency, it has become essential to optimize the process in order to maximize or minimize a chosen variable. This variable is generally known as the objective function and may be related to quantities such as profit, cost, product quality, and output.
