Product improvement and value analysis. By far attention has been concentrated upon design work in relation to new products, but of course in most companies effort needs to be directed to existing products as well ... [with] a permanent design programme which will ensure that the product remains up-to-date and successful.

CONT

Because design knowledge is relatively high when we are dealing with modifications of existing products, we describe this design situation as "Incremental Design"....

OBS
