But what of the case when the designer is the engineer and the tools that are created are utilized and created in the same capacity?

In Can Experienced Designers Learn From New Tools? A Case Study OfIdea Generation In A Professional Engineering Team we see exactly the mechanisms for utilizing these capabilities and the models that can be utilized to further develop the renaissance persons capabilities thus increasing the value to the efforts put in to such endeavors/ It is these individuals and capabilities defined here that push the boundries of engineering, design and business thus allowing breakthroughs to occur.
