Introduction: creativity, invention, innovation. Creativity obstacles and supporters. Place of creativity in modern economy. Invention and
Innovation. Basic institutions of invention: know-how, patent, public good (paper). Thinking inertia and other invention killers. Tools for creativity support and place of TRIZ among them. Genrich Altshuller and the history of TRIZ.
Part 1. Trends of Engineering System Evolution (TESE)
Altshuller’s finding: evolution patters engineering systems. S-curve evolution trend, Trend of ideality increase, Dynamisation,
Functionality Increase, Transition to Macrollevel etc. Applications to technology intelligence and system design.
Part 2. Ideal Final Result concept
Axiom of Ideality in TRIZ. Formulation, examples. Operation time,
operation zone. 3 ways to reach IFR. Ideality and system reduction (trimming).
Part 3. Contradiction analysis and elimination.
Invention as contradiction elimination. Engineering contradictions and elimination standards. Altshuller Matrix. Physical contradictions and elimination standards. Separation principles. Case studies and examples, Hands on.
Part 4. SuFiled modeling and transformation
Modeling of interactions in engineering system by subject-object-action triple. Substabce-Field. Standards for SuField model
transformations. Case Studies, examples, Hands on.
Part 5. Applications
Roadmap for inventive problem analysis. Case
studies. Project presentation.
The course is proposed to be suitable also for doctoral studies.
