“Ellen Domb” Quoting your post, I'm going to take a risk of getting thrown out of the forum, but you have been kind enough to share your research, and I want to prevent you from acting on bad infRead 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

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

Comparing Problem Solving in Nature and TRIZ

02/04/2007 |

Design in nature (bionical solutions) can help with TRIZ tools and improve the ability of TRIZ to solve problems. The objectives of biology and engineering are similar: functionality, optimization and cost effectivenessRead More

A New Paradigm for Creative Problem Solving: Six-box Scheme in Usit

01/01/2007 |
