“... a practical guide to the application of TRIZ ... compact and well written with a number of easily comprehensible examples. It is a very useful addition to the other books on TRIZ ...” — TQM Magazine This completely revised and updated second edition continues to demystify TRIZ, the internationally acclaimed problem solving technique. It demonstrates how TRIZ can be used to enhance Six Sigma, CM, SCM, QFD, and Taguchi methods. In addition to numerous exercises, worksheets, and tables that further illustrate the concepts of this multinational method, this indispensible volume— • Presents a new model for problem solving based on four TRIZ tenets — contradiction, resources, ideality, and patterns of evolution — simplified for better understanding and application • Shows you how to maximize your current technology investment by combining technology with TRIZ • Illustrates how both small and large companies are using TRIZ and achieving significant results • Provides clarification of how the patterns of evolution allow not only “what-if” scenarios, but real forecasts with significant accuracy. With the valuable tools described within these pages you will be able to find innovative solutions to problems, understand the evolution of systems, and develop more ideas, faster.

Problem solving is implicit in the very nature of all science, and virtually all scientists are hired, retained, and rewarded for solving problems. Although the need for skilled problem solvers has never been greater, there is a growing disconnect between the need for problem solvers and the educational capacity to prepare them. Learning to Solve Complex Scientific Problems is an immensely useful read offering the insights of cognitive scientists, engineers and science educators who explain methods for helping students solve the complexities of everyday, scientific problems. Important features of this volume include discussions on: *how problems are represented by the problem solvers and how perception, attention, memory, and various forms of reasoning impact the management of information and the search for solutions; *how academics have applied lessons from cognitive science to better prepare students to solve complex scientific problems; *gender issues in science and engineering classrooms; and *questions to guide future problem-solving research. The innovative methods explored in this practical volume will be of significant value to science and engineering educators and researchers, as well as to instructional designers.

This book offers a collection of cutting-edge research on the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ). Introduced by Genrich Altshuller in 1956, TRIZ has since been used by engineers, inventors and creators as an essential structured innovation method at businesses and organizations around the globe. The chapters of this book showcase work by selected authors from the 'TRIZ Future' conferences, which are organized by the European TRIZ Association (ETRIA). The chapters reflect an international mix of new ideas on TRIZ and knowledge-based innovation, highlight recent advances in the TRIZ community, and provide examples of successful collaboration between industry and academia. The book first introduces the reader to recent methodological innovations, then provides an overview of established and new TRIZ tools, followed by a collection of case studies and examples of TRIZ implementation in various scientific and social contexts.

The definitive guide to the theory of constraints In this authoritative volume, the world's top Theory of Constraints (TOC) experts reveal how to implement the ground-breaking management and improvement methodology developed by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt. Theory of Constraints Handbook offers an in-depth examination of this revolutionary concept of bringing about global organization performance improvement by focusing on a few leverage points of the system. Clear explanations supplemented by examples and case studies define how the theory works, why it works, what issues are resolved, and what benefits accrue, and demonstrate how TOC can be applied to different industries and situations. Theory of Constraints Handbook covers: Critical Chain Project Management for realizing major improvements in delivering projects on time, to specification, and within budget Drum-Buffer-Rope (DBR), Buffer Management, and distribution for maximizing throughput and minimizing flow time Performance measures for applying Throughput Accounting to improve organizational performance Strategy, marketing, and sales techniques designed to increase sales closing rates and Throughput Thinking Processes for simple and complex environments TOC methods to ensure that services actions support escalating demand for services while retaining financial viability Integrating the TOC Thinking Processes, the Strategy and Tactic Tree, TOC measurements, the Five Focusing Steps of TOC, and Six Sigma as a system of tools for sustainable improvement

Ideen allein führen nicht zum Erfolg: Produktinnovation in der Industrie ist die Umsetzung von Know-how in neue, erfolgreiche Produkte. Diese Umsetzung ist nicht mehr allein zufallsgesteuert zu betreiben, wenn Unternehmen langfristig überleben wollen. Die systematische Planung von Innovationen ist daher für den Industriebetrieb Voraussetzung zum Erfolg, wird jedoch heute nur selten durchgehend betrieben. Dies liegt vor allem daran, dass die Methoden zur Generierung und Bewertung von Innovationsansätzen nicht ausreichend bekannt und nur selten in den Innovationsprozess eingegliedert sind. Methodisches Vorgehen zur Innovationsplanung ist daher Inhalt dieses Buches. Die systematische Integration der verfügbaren Methoden in eine ganzheitliche Innovationsplanung wird beschrieben und durch Beispiele aus der Praxis belegt und demonstriert. InnovationRoadMap, Wertanalyse, TRIZ oder Portfolio-Analyse sind nur einige der Schlagworte, die der planende Ingenieur kennen lernt und hier - in den richtigen Kontext gestellt - erläutert findet.

TRIZ, sinngemäß übersetzt als Theorie des erfinderischen Problemlösens, ist eine mächtige Methode, um aus dem Erfahrungsschatz früherer Erkenntnisse aktuelle Probleme zu verstehen und zielgerichtet zu lösen, mit denen Ingenieure in ihrer täglichen Arbeit konfrontiert sind, sei es bei der Entwicklung neuer oder bei der Verbesserung bestehender Produkte. Es gibt viele Ansätze zur Analyse von Problemen und zur Definition der Anforderungen an eine Lösung; TRIZ vereint diese Ansätze konzeptionell und gibt darüber hinaus, im Gegensatz zu anderen Methoden, Ingenieursteams Werkzeuge an die Hand, mit denen - systematisch - Lösungen für gegebene Fragestellungen gefunden werden können. Damit ist TRIZ das Mittel der Wahl, um in Unternehmen und Forschungseinrichtungen Kreativität und Innovationskraft zu fördern. Dieser leicht zugängliche Praxisführer in die Welt von TRIZ entstand aus der langjährigen Schulungs- und Beratungserfahrung der Autorin Karen Gadd. Auf einzigartig verständliche und unterhaltsame Weise, unterstützt durch speziell für dieses Buch erstellte Illustrationen und Cartoons, gelingt es Karen Gadd, den Leserinnen und Lesern die TRIZ-Methode nahezubringen, so dass sie diese in der Praxis einsetzen können. Dabei werden die abstrakten Ansätze wie die Widerspruchsmatrix, Ressourcen-Checklisten und das Prinzip der Idealität stets mit konkreten Beispielen und Fallstudien aus der Praxis untermauert.
