TechOptimizer(TM) 3.0 integrates both TechOptimizer and IM-Phenomenon(TM), a computer software tool for the automatic creation of new scientific and engineering concepts, into one software solution. TechOptimizer 3.0 includes two new modules, Internet Assistant and Process Analysis, as well as the addition of more than 1,000 new scientific effects and examples to its knowledge base. The software tool is for product and process analysis, concept generation, technical knowledge management, and knowledge creation. The Product Analysis module analyzes products by defining component function, evaluating the interactions between elements of the system, and proposing new ways to increase value.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
