News SoftInWay has posted the article Evolution of Reverse Engineering describing the reverse engineering process and how it "closes the gap between what is designed and what is manufactured."

Reverse engineering (RE) is now recognized as an important factor in the product design process which highlights inverse methods, deduction and discovery in design.

Reverse engineering is a term used for the process of examining an existing component to see how it works in order to duplicate or enhance the component when you donít have the original drawing/models, documentation or manufacturing information about that component.

Some Major Reasons Why Reverse Engineering is Used

  • For an existing machine which has outdated components that were designed and manufactures years ago and are in need of repair or replacement components to maintain the function of that existing machine, reverse engineering is the right choice to gain the geometric information to replicate and reproduce the component.
  • When the original manufacturer (OEM) of a product had stopped producing a component or has lost the original componentís design measurements, then RE can be used to obtain information and recreate the component.
  • When the existing component or product can be captured in digital form and remodeled or analyzed to improve the function of existing machine while meeting all existing constraints.
  • When a new machine or product comes to market, any competing manufacturers can reverse engineer the machine to learn how it built it, how it works, and use that information for developing better new machines.
  • To reduce manufacturing cost of the new product by compressing product development time and making it competitive in market.
