AbstractThe development process of manufactured products is very similar to the natural process of evolution in living beings. The evolution of living beings is caused by variation of their chromosomes. Since the evolution of living beings is very slow, gene engineering has been developed to reform consciously the chromosomes for living beings to accentuate good characteristics. In a similar manner, manufactured products also possess genetic and evolutional information, their analogous or virtual chromosome can be deduced, and their innovation can also be actively implemented using gene-engineering techniques. This paper applies gene-engineering techniques to develop such an innovative design method, which is different from the conventional design methods and innovates products via artificial differentiation of virtual chromosomes of manufactured products. It provides a logically structured process, that can reduce blindness to innovation and can even further clone a product with the aid of advanced virtual reality technology. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
