This article examines trends over the last three decades of selected attributes for copier and printer products using xerography and thermal ink jet marking technologies. Relationships are identified between attributes that consolidate data and revealunderlying trends. An engineering performance metric is examined, useful for interpreting the trends. The analysis forms a foundation that could possibly be extended to develop projections of key performance attributes for the near future.
