In this article Dr. Michael Ohler, Damir Babic and Christine Heine talk about tools that help in the study of discontinuous processes and discuss their application in process improvement. Basic theory assumes the processes associated with standard Lean tools to be continuous. Through observation this is known to not always be the case in a transaction evironment.
In this article Yousof Ardakani talks about solving the longevity problems in total should arhorplasty replacements using the TRIZ contradiction matrix and associated principles. Even though many designs have been proposed to fix the shoulder joint replacement issues, those issues still exist. Through the use of TRIZ techniques various improvements became clear after contradictions were identified and solved.
In this article Stephen Dourson discusses the 40 Inventive Principles and provides examples of each principle being applied with respect to different finance applications. The 40 Inventive Principles were developed to allow practitioners to create solutions to problems through the use of TRIZ methodologies. Through these examples practitioners can observe the 40 Inventive Principles at work and learn to apply these methods to their own finance problems.
In this article Billy Grierson, Iain Fraser, Alisa Morrison, Stuart Niven and Greig Chisholm discuss the 40 Inventive Principles and provides examples of each principle being applied with respect to different chemical applications. The 40 Inventive Principles were developed to allow practitioners to create solutions to problems through the use of TRIZ methodologies. Through these examples practitioners can observe the 40 Inventive Principles at work and learn to apply these methods to their own problems.
In this article Iouri Belski, Len Kaplan, Vladimir Shapiro, Leonid Vaner and Wong Peng Wai discuss 21 out of 40 Inventive Principles used during a Republic of Singapore study of SARS, and provide examples of each of the applied principles. The 40 Inventive Principles were developed to allow practitioners to create solutions to problems through the use of TRIZ methodologies. Through these examples practitioners can observe 21 out of the 40 Inventive Principles at work and learn to apply these methods to their own problems.
In this article Karen Becker and Dr. Ellen Domb discuss the application of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) when problem solving with TRIZ methodologies. NLP was developed by observing and duplicating cognitive strategies with the idea in mind of replicating these cognitive strategies and applying them to increase effective cognitive use. Through the use of both NLP and TRIZ methodologies practitioners can better apply their whole brain during the problem solving process.
In this article Gregory Frenklach discusses the System Operator when observing and solving problems. The System Operator forces the problem solver to view the system with respect to the subsystem, system and super-system as well as the past, present and future. Because the System Operator allows the TRIZ practitioner to view the problem from multiple perspectives, it gives them the ability to choose how they would like to solve the problem while utilizing their available resources.
In this article Dr. Ellen Domb discusses the advantages of identifying the Ideal Final Result with respect to solving problems. The Ideal Final Result provides the best possible solution for your system without creating any additional constraints or complications. Many times the well defined Idea Final Result leads the problem solver to a solution, but even the less apparent solutions are obtainable with the use of an ARIZ based algorithm.
In this article Ronny Mann and Gregory Frenklach discuss merging TOC TP and TRIZ methodologies in order to solve problems in systems that have both human and technical factors. TOC TP is used to determine and resolve system constraints while TRIZ is utilized to provide solutions to technical problems in a system. Developing a tool that melds these two methodologies together provides solutions to individual weaknesses, and creates useful and reliable solutions pertaining to systems with both human and technical components.
In this article Amir Roggel and Gregory Frenklach explain Problem Situation Mapping (PSM) and give examples of different applications. When solving a problem the most important step is the identification of that problem. PSM allows TRIZ practitioners to be more effective innovators by giving them the ability to Identify and define the correct problem to solve, and to determine the correct contradictions associated with the problem.
