Published on

Innovation Flow describes the Science of flowing Ideas & Inventions into Technology Innovations. This is the second part of the talk that I gave to Scientists & Technologists at the National Chemical Laboratory, Pune on 27 August 2009. I explain TRIZ-based Innovative Problem Solving here. Examples are from the domains of Solid State Lighting and Nanotechnology.

  58. 58. Laws governing Trends of Evolution Static Laws: 1. Completeness of parts of the engineering system. Every technical system consists of engine, transmission, limbs and controls. Evolution will take place to all these parts. 2. Energy Conductivity of the system- The better the transfer of energy inside the system, the better the system. 3. Harmony of the parts of the system- Better harmony in timing, frequency etc. improves performance of the system. Dynamic Laws: 4. Transition from Microlevel to Macrolevel which improves miniaturization. 5. Dynamization - that moves the evolution from a rigid structure to a flexible one. Kinematic Laws 6. Moving towards increasing ideality. Every stage of evolution will move closer to the ideal system. 7. Moving from complicated system to simplified system. 8. Elemination of redundant stages and Transition towards the super-system Source: http://www.trizsite.com/triztools/evolutiontrends.asp
  59. 59. Move Predict the Trend Shankar, 27 Aug'09 !nnovation flow at NCL, Pune 59
  60. 60. Trends in Technology Evolution • Transition from single to double to multiple Monolithic items are split into multiple components for efficiency and convenience. Single purpose products are made multi-purpose products. For example, pen with single color ink to pen with different color ink. • The transition from rigid to flexible to wave technologies. According to this trend the products are moving from rigidity to flexibility. The future stages of the product will be more and more flexible. For example, fixed gates to collapsible gates, fixed tables to openable and ajustable tables etc. • The transition from mechanical to thermal to electronic energy application. Machines are becoming more automated. Human operated machines are converted to petrol operated to battery operated machines. Many are converted to solar and atomic energy operated. For example, bi-cycle to motor-cycle, mechanical watch to battery operated watch, electric lights to solar lights, steam engine trains to diessel engine to electric engine etc.
  61. 61. Trends in Technology Evolution • Transition from large to small Products are moving from large size to small size. For example, Old generation computers were large, which were replaced by small personal computers. Current age laptops and palmtops are still smaller. This shows a trend towards future computers of even smaller size. Another example, Large clocks to small wrist watches to macro clocks. • Straight lines to curves Flat surfaces are made curved surfaces for convenience of use. For example, reclangular tv-remotes are made curved to fit better with the shape of human palms. Flat rests are made curved rests to give better support to the back. • Manual to automatic, or moving towards decreasing human involvement Products move towards reduced human involvements. As human time is precious products intend to work automatically without being operated by human beings. For example, thermostats in car engine fans, tv-timer to switch of tv automatically ater some time. • Transition towards controllability Products become more and more controllable. Better products have higher controllability. For example, electronic equipments, space shuttles.
