Technology Acceleration

Product-Life-CycleEdited

What exactly is technology acceleration? It is typically product development and design, commercialization management, product testing and validation; understanding new technologies such as Additive Manufacturing. It is the activities related to the Introduction and Growth of a product/technology life cycle as seen in the figure to the right.
