Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing and deconstructing a thing to learn what it is made of and how it is constructed. Reverse engineering commonly is used to answer questions about software code or manufactured products, but it can be applied in various scenarios. 

Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is the process of deconstructing a thing to learn how it works, what it’s made of, and how it is assembled.

Reverse Engineering Examples in Product Design

Competitors often use reverse engineering to find product strengths they can adapt, or weaknesses they can improve. Reverse engineering can also be used to find information that is lost or unavailable – such as when revising someone else’s work or tracking the work of a criminal. Reverse engineering is also useful for digitalizing physical models or prototypes into computer-aided design (CAD) files. Modern design software usually has reverse engineering functionality built-in to accomplish this.
