Innovation in manufacturing as an evolutionary complex system.

Rose-Anderssen, C. and Allen, P. M. and Tsinopoulos, C. and McCarthy, I. (2005) 'Innovation in manufacturing as an evolutionary complex system.', Technovation., 25 (10). pp. 1093-1105.


The focus of this paper is on innovation in terms of the new product development processes and to discuss its main features. This is followed by a presentation of the new ideas emerging from complex systems science. It is then demonstrated how complex systems provides an overall conceptual framework for thinking about innovation and for considering how this helps to provide understanding and advice for the organisation of new product development in different circumstances. Three case studies are quoted which illustrate the application of these new ideas.
