Inventions arise in many ways and as Plato suggested, usually out of necessity. Inventions come about in response to a problem or following the identification of a need, want or opportunity. Inventive or innovative processes involve creative thinking and problem solving skills that may lead to the design and development of new products or modification of existing products.
