Invention A device or process originated after study and experiment.
Innovation A new improvement to an existing device or process.
Engineering Design Process A series of steps used to plan practical solutions to problems.
Criteria The desired features of a product related to its function or purpose.

Output The goal of the technological system.
Feedback Information from one step of a cycle that affects a previous step of the cycle in a technological system.
