If you are developing an Engineering Strategy or Engineering Plan, or deciding which improvement initiatives to implement, you need a clear picture of the future Engineering environment you're aiming for. In other words you need an Engineering Vision. The Engineering Vision 2000 Report has been produced to help you. It shows how to develop a vision, offers a framework on which you can develop your own vision, and describes a generic Engineering Vision. It's the result of many years' work developing Engineering Visions, Strategies and Plans for organizations round the world.

An Engineering Vision describes the 'to-be' state of Engineering that an organization wants to reach from its 'as-is' state. Without such a vision, without knowing the 'to-be' state:
  • long-term plans can't be made
  • an improvement strategy can't be developed
  • improvement initiatives can't be coordinated
Without an Engineering Vision, organizations make day-to-day decisions, improvement initiatives conflict and Engineering productivity decreases instead of increasing. Development of an Engineering Vision is the first step towards making major improvements in Engineering productivity and product development performance.
