I have been working with the older versions of ARIZ (71 + 77), but I would like to try the newer ones.. Which version should I use – and where can I find the description?

Type “ARIZ” into The TRIZ Journal search engine, and select the “articles” option.  You'll get a lot of references, including downloadable book chapters, etc.   ARIZ-85C is reportedly the last version that Altshuller was personally involved with.  Many instructors have their own versions, sometimes called “ARIZ-XY” where XY are the instructor's initials.   My advice is to try several of them, so you can see the patterns of relationships between the tools and methods, and can pick what works for the kinds of problems you deal with, and also can recognize when your problem is well-enough-defined that you don't need a full ARIZ analysis.

I would recommend you ARIZ-85-C. This is a very last version created by Altshuller. It started new S-curev of ARIZ evolution. It is better to find a good teachers for this purpose. Theare not so many of them unfortunately.  That is why so lot of new modifications appear.

It is alwais a good idea to start learn certain subject from the original authors. Then you will be able compare variouse versions of modifications and see by your self waht is progress and what is degradation in tose ARIZes…
