01/01/2010 |

Dear TRIZ experts,I am a PhD student at a UK university whose research is focusing onexploring the use of the theory of inventive problem solving in design.As far as we know, TRIZ has bRead More

Pointers to Effects for Non-technical Problem Solving

02/03/2009 |

Efficiency and effectiveness of TRIZ for solving non-technical problems appears to be much lower than what is used for technical problem solving. The absence of pointers to effects for non-technical problem solving should be one of the main causes.Read More

Usit in Japan: a Paradigm for Creative Problem Solving

03/11/2008 |

USIT, introduced to Japan in 1999, has been accepted as an easy, unified process for problem solving in industries and as the next generation of TRIZ. The solution generation methods of TRIZ have been reorganized into a system of USIT operators.Read More

Remote Team Problem Solving with TRIZ

02/06/2008 |

Many companies are not able to perform product development on their own. Companies may cooperate with other companies or subsidiaries in project-based joint ventures – often the teams are geographically separated.Read More

Complete Technical System Generates Problem Definitions

03/12/2007 |

Introducing TRIZ into many corporate environments requires first resolving the contradiction of the desire for comprehensive understanding and sophisticated problem solving without spending any time learning either.Read More

The Problem with Ariz and Other Innovation Processes

03/12/2007 |

What is the blinding flash of the obvious that designers of sequential problem solving processes have somehow failed to address before? Step-wise processes will not and cannot work so do not try to create them.Read More

Non-linear Problem Solving

Michael S. Slocum

We are accustomed to solving problems using a linear two-step process. This process is as simple as problem Â» solution. Our psychological bias is the foundation for our ability to solve problems using this simple process. We have an … Read More

A New Problem-solving Algorithm

04/06/2007 |

Historically, each TRIZ tool was developed (and could be used) independently for problem solving. That is why each tool had its own mini-algorithm. This work is a revision of the main TRIZ tools so that they work together as parts of the same system.Read More

Problem Situation Specification
