TRIZ (/ˈtriːz/; Russian: теория решения изобретательских задач, teoriya resheniya izobretatelskikh zadatch) is "a problem-solving, analysis and forecasting tool derived from the study of patterns of invention in the global patent literature".[1] It was developed by the Soviet inventor and science fiction author Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues, beginning in 1946. In English the name is typically rendered as "the theory of inventive problem solving",[2][3] and occasionally goes by the English acronym TIPS. Following Altshuller's insight, the theory developed on a foundation of extensive research covering hundreds of thousands of inventions across many different fields to produce a theory which defines generalisable patterns in the nature of inventive solutions and the distinguishing characteristics of the problems that these inventions have overcome. There are three primary findings of this research. §History[edit] §Basic principles of TRIZ[edit] §Essentials[edit] §Basic terms[edit]

TRIZ - Creativity techniques from A Powerful Methodology for Creative Problem Solving How could the idea of these Russian Dolls be applied to retailing? © iStockphoto/BomBeR_irk Projects of all kinds frequently reach a point where as much analysis as possible has been carried out, but the way forward is still unclear. TRIZ Training TRIZ Training Effective TRIZ Problem Solving in 5 days Oxford Creativity’s greatest success has been the development of a unique and effective TRIZ Training Workshop Programme which can help anyone learn TRIZ, be effective and self sufficient in TRIZ problem solving in the minimum possible time. Oxford Creativity has developed a programme of 5 intense days, in order to fit in with the busy schedules of the engineers and managers who learn with us. These 5 days are split into 2 workshops: Basic and Advanced TRIZ. Visit the Events page for dates and venue details. Oxford Creativity TRIZ Training Workshops have delivered audited success of innovative problem solving with TRIZ in BAE Systems and other major companies for over sixteen years.

TRIZ - What Is TRIZ? By Katie Barry, Ellen Domb and Michael S. Slocum Projects of all kinds frequently reach a point where all the analysis is done, and the next step is unclear. The project team must be creative, to figure out what to do. Common creativity tools have been limited to brainstorming and related methods, which depend on intuition, fiat and the knowledge of the members of the team. These methods are typically described as psychologically based and having unpredictable and unrepeatable results.

Nissan Production Way: A better alternative to TPS? I have visited three former Nissan Diesel factories in Japan this week (today owned by a foreign multinational). The plants operate according to the Nissan Diesel Production System—a bi-product of the famous Nissan Production Way (NPW). I believe that too many lean-lovers focus too heavily on the Toyota Production System (TPS), and know too little about alternative approaches to world-class production. The core idea of an XPS is exactly that the X should be tailored to the company, and not be a TPS-blueprint.

What Does a 21st Century Classroom Look Like: Inquiry Posted 05/12/2015 12:23PM | Last Commented 06/03/2015 4:10PM Continuing to follow up the post 10 Signs of a 21st Century Classroom… Incorporating inquiry into courses is one of the areas that I personally struggle with the most. Inquiry has many meanings, but I’m going to define it as a student directed, interest driven approach to new knowledge. It is a natural style of learning.

Nissan Production Way See on - lean manufacturing A look at production behind the scenes at Nissan's Oppama Plant, where everyday the Nissan Juke, Cube, Sylphy and 100%-electric LEAF roll off the lines Michel Baudin's insight: I did visit the Oppama plant(追浜工場), in 1980. Then it was making the Nissan Leopard for the Japanese market, the company's cars were sold in the US under the Datsun brand, and they used Kanbans, which they called "workplates" to avoid borrowing the vocabulary of archrival "Company T from Aichi Prefecture."

Innovative product development process by integrating QFD and TRIZ - International Journal of Production Research - Volume 40, Issue 5 QFD (Quality Function Deployment) has been used to reflect the needs of customers in products, while TRIZ (a Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) was developed to assist engineers in finding innovative solutions to technical problems in product development processes. However, no method has been proposed to integrate QFD with TRIZ effectively. This report describes a new method, named the Innovative Product Development Process (IPDP), which systematically integrates QFD with TRIZ and enables the effective and systematic creation of technical innovation for new products. In IPDP, the target products' functions and mechanisms are deployed in parallel into hierarchical structures, and the mechanism that most requires technical innovation is specified from an analysis of customers' needs by calculating a mechanism weight.

Feng Office Community Edition Feng Office Community Edition (formerly OpenGoo) is an open source collaboration platform developed and supported by Feng Office[1] and the OpenGoo community. It is a fully featured online office suite with a similar set of features as other online office suites, like Google Apps, Microsoft Office Live, Zimbra, and Zoho. The application can be downloaded and installed on a server. Feng Office could also be categorized as collaborative software[2] and as personal information manager software. Let’s not use 21st century technology with 19th century pedagogy Technology may be changing but classrooms and teaching methods are pretty much unchanged since this picture was taken (Creative Commons image) By Larry Magid In a talk at the National PTA Conference in Charlotte, NC, Thomas Murray, State and District Digital Learning Policy and Advocacy Director for Alliance for Education, reminded me of what’s been bothering me for years. “We’re using 21st century tools in 20th century learning environments.” I’d go even further than Murray. As far as I’m concerned too many of our teachers are using 21st century technology with 19th century pedagogy with teaching styles and classroom management techniques that haven’t changed much since my grandparents were in school.
