Agreed; its not research when done that way.  It's just a project to be
completed.  Basically, companies don't do research on the stockholders'
dimes.      (01)

There are nonprofits and public interest companies, such as Howard Hughes
Medical Institute, which have large resource banks and which may be less
precise in their demands for budgetary planning, but companies that are for
profit and owned by reasonable investors don't do research because it is
simply economically not viable.  Uncharted territory will have to wait.      (02)

Thank you for confirming my point.

Engineering usually involves ingenuity and creativity, and it normally
requires an evaluation of several different designs to determine which
is the most cost effective, reliable, and likelihood of being completed
on time and within budget.    (05)

But I would consider that to be normal, predictable development.
It is not research into uncharted territory.    (06)
