In this article Jack Hipple discusses the 40 principles of TRIZ while giving examples for the field of chemical engineering. These principles were created to help people develop innovative solutions when confronted with contradictions. With examples for the field of chemical engineering this article illustrates the ability of these 40 principles to be applied across wide a variety of industries.
In this article Jack Hipple discusses different ways TRIZ can be utilized to give structure to the Fuzzy Front End of product development. When products are patented other businesses react by developing products to do the same process but better. This creats the need to develop products more efficiently. The use of different TRIZ techniques such as trimming, TRIZ contradiction tables, field use, and sub-system, system and super-system thinking are exemplified in this article, and gives businesses the ability to be more effective in the Fuzzy Front End.
