The team is working to develop proposals for new business areas for HP utilizing their market-leading inkjet printer technology. Initially, a list of 20 to 30 new applications (e.g., personal computing, pharmaceuticals, entertainment) will be created. Then in consultation with the sponsor, the most promising ideas will be chosen based on technical merit, innovation, and business fit. This will require engineering and manufacturing analysis and, most likely, prototyping. The driving force for this project comes from HP's desire to expand and support economic and technological infrastructure in Puerto Rico. HP plans to build new manufacturing facilities and is using this opportunity to create new applications.
