The course of developing a new product from an idea is a complicated process. This paper will discuss that process, in detail, from conception to product. We approach this by first discussing what the inventor must do begin the process of developing his or her idea, and then two pathways that occur simultaneously: the Technology Transfer process of patenting, marketing, and licensing the invention; and the engineering process of developing, modifying, and manufacturing the invention. Although the process is lengthy and most ideas never become a marketed product, there are those few ideas that do become realized into marketed products.
