Engineering of Creativity: Introduction to TRIZ Methodology by Thomas M. Pankratz

By Thomas M. Pankratz

Invention and innovation lie on the middle of challenge fixing in nearly each self-discipline, yet they aren't effortless to return via. Divine suggestion apart, traditionally we've depended totally on remark, brainstorming, and trial-and-error the way to increase the techniques that supply options. yet those equipment are neither effective nor responsible adequate for the top quality, high-tech engineering recommendations we want today.TRIZ is a distinct and robust, algorithmic method of challenge fixing that validated extraordinary effectiveness in its local Russia, and whose reputation has now unfold to enterprises reminiscent of Ford, NASA, Motorola, Unisys, and Rockwell overseas. previously, besides the fact that, no accomplished, understandable therapy, compatible for self-study or as a textbook, has been to be had in English.Engineering of Creativity presents a helpful chance to profit and observe the techniques and strategies of TRIZ to complicated engineering difficulties. The author-a world-renowned TRIZ expert-covers each element of TRIZ, from the fundamental ideas to the newest learn and advancements. He presents step by step instructions, case reports from various engineering disciplines, and first-hand adventure in utilizing the methodology.Application of TRIZ can convey high-quality-even breakthrough-conceptual ideas and aid get rid of technical stumbling blocks. gaining knowledge of the contents of Engineering of Creativity will deliver your profession and your organization a impressive virtue: the facility to formulate the very best suggestions for technical platforms difficulties and are expecting destiny advancements.

Example text

Often a TRIZ heuristic can help perform the most important step in problem solving, filling the gap between the initial and desirable situations. * During the analyses of patents from various engineering fields, Altshuller, and later other TRIZ experts, discovered that very different technical systems and technological processes share similar peculiarities in their evolution. Western economists extracted similar ideas from historic data. These studies of the history of technique reveal general trends in the evolution of technical systems and technological processes.

Initially, an increase in information leads to better solutions, but there comes a point at which more information has a diminishing effect. Information by itself does not produce solutions. We need the ability to work with the information effectively. Mind mapping, developed by Tony Buzan for information representation [12], is a simple, attractive method for handling information. To make a mind map, one starts in the center of the page with the main idea, then, working outward in all directions, writes keywords and images, mapping connections.

Technical systems participate in technological processes in order to satisfy the needs of human beings or another TS. On another hand, any technological processes occur because of the existence of one or several TS. Therefore, TS and TP are bound to each other — they supplement each other. We can also look at this as a set of parts with links in space (TS) and as a set of parts with links in time (TP). 50 © 1997 by CRC Press LLC 33 34 Engineering of Creativity or link in space, is often called an element of the system.
