Abstract

The history of industrial products is one of a products evolution towards high perfection and utility. In this sense, a question arises: how to have new industrial products of world class quality, socially necessary and ecologically sustainable? This article presents a proposal to reorganize the industrial system globally to attain new, better levels of the above challenge based on an independent examination of all product designs before manufacture to avoid mediocre, unnecessary or non-eco-friendly products. It also introduces the Centers of Design Excellence and Prototyping, as well as the main educational lines of future designers in accordance with the proposed reorganization. It is suggested that products are approved by a single global entity before being manufactured. This entity, formed by a scientific-technical committee and a social committee, would examine the products on the basis of their technical suitability, i.e. innovation and perfection of design and operation, as well as social suitability, i.e. feasibility to be implemented in society. These transparent, worldwide quality committees would rely on active democratic citizen participation to take decisions. The effects of this reorganization on society and other areas and the solution to some current problems are also discussed. This industrial reorganization could cause profound changes in society and social research of these anticipated changes might be needed.
