TRIZ is a theory created to systematize processes and procedures related to innovation and creativity in the solution of problems. TRIZ is a Russian acronym which can be expressed in English as ‘Theory of Inventive Problems Solving’ and consists of a theory, operating procedures and a range of tools created by Genrich Saulovich Altshuller (1926-1998) from 1946, with the objective of capturing the creative process in technical and technological contexts, codifying it and making it repeatable and applicable, in short a proper theory of invention.
TRIZ allows the analysis, the structuring of models and, finally, the solution of problems with a systematic approach based upon a series of subsequent stages and operating tools. Up to this day, the TRIZ methodology has proved to be the most efficient method to solve inventive problems. The 2-day workshop will cover the following:
- Structured Problem Solving Process Engineering Contradiction
- Function Analysis 39 System Parameters
- Cause & Effect Chain Analysis 40 Inventive Principles
- Trimming Contradiction Matrix
What you will learn:
- Correctly define complex problems.
- Reduces time and money required to solve technical problems.
- Generates simple, elegant and creative breakthrough solutions.
- Make the right decisions more effectively, quickly and easily.
Who should attend:
- Those who are interested to equip themselves with additional problem solving tools and/or improve their critical thinking and creativity.
- Designers, Engineers, Scientists, Researchers, Managers and Directors involved with new product, new process or technology development.
