The special issue of the Journal of Integrated Design and Process Science (JIDPS) discusses inventive approaches to competitive systems engineering, including any new developments in the area. It focuses on how inventiveness can be achieved in such a conventional domain as general systems engineering and how researchers see milestones of invention such as a steam engine, a transformer, a transistor, a television, a computer, and the like in the current days. It investigates whether the published inventions and patent proposals based on the results of the ongoing ground-braking scientific inquiry and learning, or do they involve only small steps and low risk of adaptation. This special issue is designed to cast light on some inventive approaches to competitive systems engineering. The motivation has come from the outcome of the abovementioned effort to get deeper insights in resources of non-traditional system engineering as well as in the interest of the journal concerning the phenomenon and manifestation of convergence in the creative and inventive practices.
