Invention by design is a prosaic but eminently practical method of making an
invention. To some people it does not seem to be invention at all, for the reason
that it is accomplished deliberately, in cold blood so to speak, and does not carry
with it the idea of genius and inspiration. It has resulted, however, in producing
most if not all of the automatic machines which have done so much to advance
the position of the United States among manufacturing nations. To design such a
machine ...

invention. The British academic C. S. Lewis once wrote that it is 'scarcity that
enables a society to exist'.8 With abundance, we do not need to concern
ourselves too much with the notion of society – with the manners and mores of
living alongside others. To a large extent, we can behave as fairly autonomous
individuals. When everyone owns a TV we do not need to form an orderly queue
outside the cinema, or agree to keep quiet during the film. Similarly, we do not
have to cooperate ...

These methods had their roots in the field of agriculture and were developed in
England by Sir Ronald Fisher at the Rothampstead Agricultural station outside of
London. Before such methods were available, trial and error was the main
method of gaining information about a new process or product. Even today, over
a half century since their invention, experimental design methods are not used as
widely as current quality problems might dictate, since very few engineers have
learned ...

6.2.5 Work process Deltapark is an invention, a multidisciplinary collection of new
technologies from different scientific Wageningen-UR institutes, integrated in one
design, that has never been developed into a value proposition. The KENGi
facilitator Innovation network played a decisive role in the initiation of this
invention, by acting as paying assigner for the various design agencies (Figure
18). But seen from the relationship between the KENGi partners and most of all
between the ...

chased in a foreign port. Imagine how much easier trade was made, therefore, by
the invention of the bill of exchange, an IOU drawn on a bank to pay the bearer
an amount of specie upon presentation. Imagine, further, how much easier things
got once banks began to act as clearinghouses for bills of exchange: the bills of
all associated banks could simply be reconciled with one another; opposing
debts could be offset against one another, so that very little gold or silver had to
