análise minuciosa / decomposição

"Tear-down analysis (also known as reverse engineering) involves examining a competitor’s product in order to identify opportunities for product improvement and/or cost reduction."


..."For others, including consumer electronics, the results are typically disseminated through photographs and component lists so that others can make use of the information without having to disassemble the product themselves. This information is important to designers of semiconductors, displays, batteries, packaging companies, integrated design firms, and semiconductor fabs, and the systems they operate within."...
