The hallmark of a good Engineer is his ability to look inwards and provide solution to a local problems using local materials. The extent of local material used over the solution provided is the Creativity Index.
Globally, technological creativity index is 1.0 but locally, it is often less than 1.0. The figure is less with lesser developed technologies/economies.
