Abstract:
One of the important problems facing technological growth in developing nations is lack of appropriate strategy development, appropriate infrastructure for implementation and inability to sustain technology policies. There has been lack of sincerity on the leadership to enact appropriate political will to drive policy development. This has been the situation in sub-Saharan Africa. Whereas, the future of technological growth, manufacturing and breakthrough in Nigeria and entire sub-Saharan nations depends on the nation’s human capacity in aspect of engineering and technology management. The economic growth, technology advancement, rapid development and structural transformation witnessed in the industrialized nations of USA, UK, Germany, Russia etc and that of industrializing countries like Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, India, and Taiwan could not have occurred without the strong quality management policies and strategies for their technologies. However, industrialization is somehow backwardin the Third World countries like Nigeria due to her inability to inaugurate relevant strategy and policy on reverse engineering technology as panacea for advancement in technology and proliferation of local manufacturing proficiency. This is responsible for the ever increasing technological gap between developed and underdeveloped economic world. This paper, therefore, showcases the little gains in the use of reverse engineering technology and suggested the dissemination of the technology to help alleviate the problems of machine building indigenization. This will in no doubt input quality standards into the SME’s products for economic and technological development.
