Regularity in innovation and planned aging

    Innovations, Vol. 7 (2019), Issue 3, pg(s) 90-93

    Technological development and its consequences, in the form of innovative aging of products and processes, lead to producers’ attitude towards searching for ways and means of improving and changing their parameters. The trend of changing the parameters of innovative products and processes as a result of their rapid innovation aging has already formed a new alternative concept for innovation development. It also puts new requirements both on the consumer nature of innovative products and on the methods, approaches and ways of their production and consumption. The main directions that provide an effective way out of the constraints imposed by rapid innovation aging to create competitive innovative products are being actively applied by many companies in automotive and electronics. This new approach, quickly adopted by manufacturers, is already showing its advantages in the practice of many industrial companies. The purpose of this article is to explore this process and define the main directions of its alternative and development. In essence, this means shortening the life cycle of products and reducing their resource use.

  • Alternative approach to determining the innovative obsolescence of industrial products

    Innovations, Vol. 7 (2019), Issue 1, pg(s) 3-5

    Technological development, nowadays, has entered a crucial stage that gives precedence to the innovative obsolescence over the physical one. To that effect, of utmost importance, therefore, is the accurate identification of the extent, i.e. the degree of innovative obsolescence in an effort to assess the effect of innovation upon the technical-economic performance and social outcomes of the industrial activity. Moreover, in an increasingly globalizing economy, innovations are bound to make a worldwide impact, accelerating the innovative technological obsolescence with the level of technology being utilised is globally lagging further behind the level of today’s technology. Prolonged use of obsolete technology and outdated technological processes leads to certain losses, the amount of which is contingent on the extent of the lag range. Advanced in the paper is an alternative approach to determining innovative obsolescence of technological products and the respective solutions in pursuit of a marked reduction in its adverse effects.
