  • Not known to be repeatable How many different possible solutions will work, which one is better if you don’t know of other approaches to solving the problem We look at problems and the potential solutions the same way we always have, with the same tools that we have always had. Using the same hammer in the tool box is not always appropriate, sometimes a jewelers screwdriver is needed. Paradigms, Habits, (NIH mentality) Past Success, Rewards & Punishments Self Talk – “I am not that creative” “ Don’t go out of scope” “ Stay in your own turf” Intel hires bright people but there are very few Einstein's in the world, even at Intel. Ordinary in one field, Innovative in another Difficult for one person to be expert in many areas 5. One grand idea mind set A project will only produce one correct solution Don’t exceed the local budget If it looks like it will work, make it work Get on to the next problem
  • “TRIZ” is the acronym for the Russian terms " Teorijz Rezhenija Izobretatel'skich Zadach .” when translated into English equates to “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving.” A ll innovations emerge from the application of a very small number of inventive principles and strategies. T echnology evolution trends are highly predictable. T he strongest solutions transform the unwanted or harmful elements of a system into useful resources. T he strongest solutions also actively seek out and destroy the conflicts and trade-offs most design practices assume to be fundamental.
  • The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving is a powerful tool that has been developed over the last 50 years in the former Soviet Union. It is a structured methodology for a directed development of new products and processes, thereby guiding technological evolution. Altshuller’s TRIZ research began with the hypothesis that there had to be and are universal principles of invention that are the basis for creative innovations that advance technology, and that if these principles could be identified and codified, they could be taught to people to make the process of invention more predictable. TRIZ was developed to provide the innovator with reliable and repeatable results -results that do not depend on personal creative ability or psychological techniques such as brainstorming. TRIZ relies on proven knowledge that has been applied time and again throughout mankind’s history.

Problems and solutions were repeated across industries and sciences 2. Patterns of technical evolution were repeated across industries and sciences 3. Innovations used scientific effects outside the field where they were originally developed. To date over 3.0million patents worldwide have been analyzed to discover the patterns that predict breakthrough solutions to technical problems. This new science of creativity is based on the study of the patterns of problems and solutions, and is not dependent on the spontaneous creativity of individuals or groups. Much of the practice of TRIZ consists of learning these repeating patterns of problems-solutions and patterns of technical evolution, and methods of using scientific effects, and applying the general TRIZ patterns to the specific situation that has confronted technology developers, engineers, strategists and product architects alike.
  • © 2002 Ellen Domb. PQR Group +1 (909) 949 0857 Intel is using this by permission to the course content owner Richard Platt The key findings of TRIZ research are that: A ll innovations emerge from the application of a very small number of inventive principles and strategies. T echnology evolution trends are highly predictable. T he strongest solutions transform the unwanted or harmful elements of a system into useful resources. T he strongest solutions also actively seek out and destroy the conflicts and trade-offs most design practices assume to be fundamental. TRIZ offers users access to the knowledge and experiences of the world's finest inventive minds. It is intended to complement and add structure to our natural creativity rather than replace it. TRIZ can be used in a number of different ways. An overall process enables users to systematically define and then solve any given problem or opportunity situation. Some users will rigorously apply this process. Others are happier extracting individual elements from the overall structure and using those. Although TRIZ is easily the most exhaustive creativity aid ever assembled, it does contain some gaps and holes. The overall aim of these training sessions has been to construct a problem definition and solving process that works for any situation users may care to throw at it - whether that be technical or non-technical, simple or complex, highly constrained or clean-sheet, step change innovation or incremental improvement, or focused on products, processes or services. TRIZ effectively strips away all boundaries between different scientific, engineering and creative discipline and its effectiveness has been proved across a broad spectrum of fields and problem types. TRIZ is both simple and complex. To learn and gather a working knowledge of the whole structure will probably take six months. Some people are prepared to make this investment, and others are not. Those that are not usually take great comfort from the fact that they will be able to learn and realize significant benefit from just a short exposure to individual elements of the overall structure. In many instances these benefits are enough. TRIZ is different to most other creativity aids, and quite appear a little unnatural at first. Here are some of the things that may help how you think about TRIZ and the way you will use it: The Core Concepts of “Simplified” or “International” TRIZ: 1500 person years of TRIZ research have produced a significant number of innovation tools and methods..

Richard Platt Genrich Saulovich Altshuller developed this method with his colleagues, where they used it extensively from the late 1940’s through the late 1980’s. Genrich Altshuller, born on October 15th 1926, in Tashkent in the former USSR, began his career in the Russian Navy as a lieutenant in the patent department of the Caspian Sea Military Navy. Which is where he had concluded that there had to be a pattern and process for problem solving instead of the typical time-consuming trial and error approach. Altshuller was really the first known person that refused to embrace an unreliable, unrepeatable, and personality-dependent psychological approach to creativity. He reasoned that knowledge about inventions could be extracted, compiled and generalized in such a way that it was easily accessible by inventors in any area. This really was the birthing of the 1st known innovation knowledge base . It actually didn’t begin to gain acceptance until 1968 when he managed to get an audience at the Russian patent organization, VOIR, (All Union Society of Inventors Innovators), to review this methodology. It was officially adopted whereupon he and his collaborators began teaching this technique to scientists, engineers, inventors and a host of others on how to use the 40 principles and the contradiction matrix that were the original basis of TRIZ. After the fall of the former USSR in 1989, TRIZ migrated to the West where many consultants in the field of technology development began to adopt it. It was also at this time that the Russian TRIZ Association was established and Altshuller was named as its president, until his death on September 24th 1998. TRIZ development in the Soviet Union moved underground after Altshuller was imprisoned in 1950 for his "heretical" work, actually caused by making the naïve mistake of writing a letter to comrade Stalin criticizing the lack of innovation and ignorance in the process of inventing in the Soviet Union. Mr. Altshuller was later released from prison in 1955, a year and half after Stalin had died, and returned to Baku where he lived until he eventually moved to Petrozavodsk, in Karelia. During that period from 1955 to 1998 he refined the development of TRIZ, and its adjunct tools for forecasting technology known as ARIZ, (Algorithm for the Solution of Inventive Problems). n use in Finland, US, Canada, Israel, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Australia, Japan, UK, Mexico, Russia, and more

What is the most critical success factor in your business? The answer is a company’s ability to innovate. Innovation is the ability to generate highly creative solutions to previously unsolved problems, and to bring those ideas to a point where they ARE implemented. Innovation can enable the achievement and maintaining a commanding position in the marketplace. This capability positions a company for controlled growth and profitability. Every business needs a powerful and organized method for systematically eliminating technological roadblocks related to the development and use of products. The very life of the corporation that you work for depends on it. Before moving on, you are urged to keep in mind that TRIZ is easy to learn, but requires on-going familiarity. If committed to the process, you will have little problem learning it. However as with any newly acquired language or skill, if you do not apply what you have learned on a regular basis, your ability to successfully benefit from your knowledge will diminish. As you proceed through the course, it is recommended that you “internalize” what you are learning by constantly looking for opportunities to fit TRIZ into your work & lives. This will provide you with the ROI for your time spent learning

  • “ TRIZ in the process industry” by Gert Poppe and Bart Gras Innovation Quotient. Article found This article was first published in shorter form in the proceedings of the European TRIZ Association Conference, November, 2001. 1. Functional modeling and trimming In product development, design and development methodologies are widely used. Functional modeling and functional thinking are known here through the application of these methodologies. Robust design, Value management, FMEA … in all of these methodologies “functional modeling” is used in some way. In the process industry, this is less the case. In the chemical industry e.g. it is much more common to think in “unit-operations” than to analyze the functions of the different components and substances in a process. So the mere introduction of “functional thinking” is very useful here. 2. Root cause analysis and problem analysis As we already stated above, in processes the actual cause of a problem (the “root cause”) is often hidden somewhere in the process. Off spec production, or an excess amount of energy consumed, can be due to different kinds of root causes somewhere upstream the process. This means that the whole process of functionally modeling the problem at hand can become very complex. Indeed, the effort needed to model all possible areas or steps in a process where a possible cause of the problem is located can be huge. Also, TRIZ does not offer much support in dealing with this contradiction : on the one hand one would like to take all possible options into account, but then, on the other hand, time consumed by the process could become prohibitive. Or to state it in TRIZ terms : one wants to improve the reliability of the problem solving process by addressing all the possible causes but then the loss of time could become too high. The contradiction matrix in this case would suggest to perform a prior action . This is a place where the Russian TRIZ methodology can meet some of the Western methodologies. Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) and the Theory of Constraints (TOC) 2 are a few methodologies that can be combined with TRIZ, to achieve a more efficient way of approaching the problems faced in production processes. All these methodologies provide one with a way to relate a number of features occurring in a process to the same “root cause”. This is mainly done through the development of Cause-and-Effect graphs, providing insight in the way the “root cause” leads to the occurrence of the different features. Before continuing with the TRIZ process, one has to determine what the possible “root causes” of the deviations are and which of the root causes is most likely to have produced the deviations. 3. Generic knowledge in principles But off course the best proof of the applicability of TRIZ in the process industry is the successful application of the different TRIZ tools to specific process related problems. Here we will give a few examples of how the 40 principles, one of the most widely used TRIZ tools, can be used.

  • In the US, the use of the Baldrige Award Criteria (ref. 3) has expanded greatly, with 37 state and regional awards, as well as the national award. More than 2 million copies of the award criteria have been distributed to businesses, government organizations, and health and education organizations. The European Quality Award has had similar popularity. The Baldrige Criteria in each area follow approximately the same pattern: This is a good thing. How does your organization do it? How do you improve what you do? Do you compare yourself to other organizations? If yes, how do you select them and what do you do with what you learn? In each area of the Baldrige Award, organizations need to exercise creativity in order to tailor the concepts to their own industry and culture. This table illustrates that.
  • Conclusion: Creativity improvement enhances quality improvement. Quality analysis tells us what our customers want, what our processes need, and what our employees need, but creativity is needed to find ways to make these new products, services, systems, and processes happen. All employees can learn both right-brain and left-brain creativity methods, and can learn to apply them to the appropriate situations.
  • Corporate Training There is a number of corporations that had extensive training programs on TechOptimizer: Procter & Gamble Co – 70 hrs program – 80 people Procter & Gamble CO – 30 hrs program – 1.500 people DSM (Holland) - 194 hrs program – 5 people DSM (Holland) – 30 hrs program –120 (400 by 2003) people Unilever (UK and US) – 30 hrs program – 100 people Honda (Japan) – 30 hrs program – 100 people Mitsubishi Research Institute (public seminars)- 70 hrs program – 100 people Shell Oil Company (Holland, US) – 30 hrs program – 100 people, etc

  • This Fig. 1 describes a method of introducing TRIZ into organizations that overcomes these obstacles. This method uses no "tricks" of cultural change or subtleties of organizational dynamics. It gets the technical professionals and technical managers in engineering, production, distribution, and service to experience TRIZ immediately, and helps them get breakthrough results on their own problems immediately. Step 1 is the organization's decision that increased innovation is needed. Most commonly this comes from competitive pressure, although occasionally it comes from regulatory requirements. One or more organization managers are selected to be the TRIZ "champions" to orchestrate the introduction and institutionalization of TRIZ. Step 2 is the selection of one or more pilot projects for TRIZ introduction. The competitive or regulatory issues, or the organization's problem identification and corrective action selection system usually identify the candidate problems, and the "champion" works with the consultant to select those problems which will have the best combination of high-value payoff and usefulness as future teaching cases. These projects or problems are used as the case studies for an introductory experiential class. The class has multiple benefits: Concepts for inventive solutions are generated for the selected projects or problems The participants themselves generate the results The participants learn to sort the results and get immediate and long-term benefits. The participants learn the TRIZ methodology (at the introductory level) well enough to apply it themselves Step 3 is implementation of the results of the class. According to the needs of the organization, this can be done as a joint effort or by the organization itself. The results generated are solutions to the problems of implementation of the concepts generated in Step 2, so this is a very visible, valuable reinforcement of the classroom work in Step 2, with results that have immediate payoff. After the successes in Steps 2 and 3, the TRIZ "champion" and the organization's leadership pick one of 2 paths. The Internal path produces a full team of internal TRIZ practitioners, who replace the external instructors and consultants as their skills increase. The External path uses consultants to coach each team as each project is identified. Hybrid approaches have also been used successfully, in which the External path is followed for quick results, while the Internal path is followed for development of future continuity. The External path is also frequently used for strategic planning, for applications of TRIZ to technology forecasting for the entire industry and for product platforms, while the Internal path is proceeding. The internal experts learn the strategic uses of TRIZ, and become internal consultants as well as instructors, during their advanced topics training. As the organization develops its own internal experts, they take the lead in the integration of TRIZ with the organization's existing methodologies. They become the collective "champions" in overcoming the last obstacle to TRIZ implementation: the traditional methods of project management. TRIZ will impact new product projects, process improvement projects, and process re-engineering projects. Following the right-hand " Internal " branch of the flow chart will overcome this obstacle
  • TRIZ/QFD. Quality Function Deployment identifies and prioritizes the Voice of the Customer, and the capabilities of the company technologies, then helps prioritize new concepts for design and production. TRIZ helps you create the new concepts. TRIZ/Robust design. Robust design finds the right parameters to minimize all forms of waste and cost. TRIZ finds ways of creating the processes that will achieve those parameters. TRIZ/DFM-A: Design for Manufacturability and Design for Assembly identify and prioritize features of design that make manufacturing and assembly low cost, high yield, and short cycle time. TRIZ resolves the technical problems encountered when implementing these features. Similarly, many organizations have developed their own guidelines for "Design for Serviceability" which are enhanced by TRIZ creativity in achieving serviceable designs. TRIZ/TOC: Theory of constraints is used by many manufacturing organizations to identify production bottlenecks. The TOC tools can replace or enhance the problem identification steps in TRIZ problem solving, then the TRIZ creativity tools are used to accelerate development of ways to remove the bottlenecks. TRIZ/Concurrent Engineering (or Integrated Product and Process Engineering, or Product Development Teams, or Supplier/Developer/Customer teams) These project management teams will use TRIZ at many levels ranging from technology forecasting to conceptual design to production design, from implementation problem solving to service, delivery, and repair improvements. At this level of integration TRIZ passes from being seen as a tool, or a system of tools and methods, and becomes an intrinsic part of your organization's method of gaining competitive advantage. Until it reaches this point, it will require nurturing and "championship" to keep people aware of their opportunities to apply TRIZ.

    27. 27. Obstacles to company-wide adoption of TRIZ are human, not technical: <ul><li>Time: People are too busy &quot;fighting fires&quot; to learn new methods of fire prevention </li></ul><ul><li>Suspicion: Other &quot;new methods&quot; have over-promised productivity improvement, customer satisfaction, faster time to market, higher ROI or EVA, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional methods of project management: If the success of a project is measured by traditional milestones, and the new process doesn't match those milestones, there will be great pressure to work within the existing system. </li></ul><ul><li>The NIH syndrome. NIH means &quot; not invented here &quot; and can have double meaning for TRIZ-both &quot;not invented in the organization&quot; and &quot;not invented in this country.&quot; A sub-category of NIH is &quot;Well, it may work for so-and-so, but it won't work for us.&quot; Our problems are different/high tech/not in their data base/controlled by regulators, etc. </li></ul>
    28. 28. Flow chart for TRIZ implementation Project consulting (the &quot; External &quot; branch marked can also be done without initial training, if the goal is to get immediate technical results.
