Reverse engineering

Engineering is a profession and an art to develop and apply structures, machines, materials, devices, processes and systems through scientific, technical and mathematical methods. Engineering is classified into two: forward and reverse engineering.

Advanced engineering involves traditional engineering methods. The development of such inventions comes from critical thinking, creating a logical design to implementation and production.

Reverse engineering is the method of determining the technological function and principle of a certain object, equipment, system or device by analyzing and using electronic and mechanical devices or even a software program. The principle of this type of engineering is to create or develop another product using the principles behind a specific device.

The process of investigating the system of a given product in reverse engineering consists of recognizing its components and their relationships, developing a prototype of the system, and developing a logical and physical representation of the system in a higher form.

The common field that uses this type of engineering is entertainment, chemistry, electronics, software engineering, microchips, consumer products, and mechanical design. The principle of reverse engineering is not just to copy or duplicate the product, it is also used for future development of the same product and to reduce the development time of products. Manufacturers are continually looking for new developments and ideas on how to reduce development time to improve product marketability, quality and durability.

Other reasons why reverse engineering is being implemented: the product is no longer produced by the original developer of the product, the original developer does not exist but is needed by the consumer, product documentation is insufficient or lost, reformatting of the device, investigate the features of the opponent’s product and modernize outdated materials and some outdated manufacturing techniques.
