Abstract : The aerospace industry began as a market in which manufacturers for the most part had a known paying customer for their product. Even today, Boeing has aircraft buyers waiting in line for new 737 and 777 models. The industry has not fully developed, and the need of improved technology is still very present. However, as the industry matures this luxury is quickly eroding. Like most other industries, aerospace manufacturers in the future will have to independently determine some need that is present and they could fulfill, develop a product to meet that need, and then market their finished product. This can be a daunting process when considered in light of the million and billion dollar cost of most research and development programs in the aerospace industry.
