OVERVIEW
  • The origins of TRIZ from the patent literature
  • Use in intellectual property area, problem solving, and forecasting

NOTE: All day workshop on TRIZ and its use in forecasting on Tuesday at WFS

what is triz
WHAT IS “TRIZ” ?

A Russian acronym:

Theoria Resheneyva Isobretatelskehuh Zadach

(Theory of Solving Problems Inventively)

the history of triz
THE HISTORY OF TRIZ
  • A discovery of a talented patent examiner for the Russian navy, Genrich Altshuller, 1950’s
  • Originated from the study of several hundred thousand of the world’s most inventive patents--now in the millions
  • He recognized that the development of technological systems follows predictable patterns that cut across ALL areas of technology--the speed of technical evolution can be accelerated
  • Also recognized that problem solving principles are also predictable and repeatable--anyone can invent!
  • Established schools to teach after a Stalin 7 yr. prison term--deceased in 1999 at age 71

PATTERNS OF INVENTION

Processing Sweet Peppers

what is the inventive principle operator
WHAT IS THE INVENTIVE PRINCIPLE (OPERATOR) ?

“Slowly raise pressure and suddenly reduce it”

  • A path to a solution
  • An approach to solving a problem
  • A direction towards an answer

PATTERNS OF INVENTION

  • Removing stems from bell peppers
  • Removing shells form sunflower seeds
  • Cleaning filters
  • Unpacking parts wrapped in protective paper
  • Splitting diamonds along micro-cracks
  • Producing sugar powder from sugar crystals
  • Explosive depulping

PATTERNS OF INVENTION

  • Removing stems from bell peppers
  • Removing shells form sunflower seeds
  • Cleaning filters
  • Unpacking parts wrapped in protective paper
  • Splitting diamonds along micro-cracks
  • (+27 years after pepper patent)
  • Producing sugar powder from sugar crystals
  • Explosive depulping
problem solving vs intellectual property
PROBLEM SOLVING VS.INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
  • Most typical use of TRIZ is in engineering, design, and product problem solving
  • In problem solving, problems are generalized and then previous patterns are reviewed for solutions
  • In the area of intellectual property, it can assist and provide a structure in the effort to broaden patent claims
  • Software products can assist in patent circumvention
question for discussion

QUESTION FOR DISCUSSION…..

Should there be as many patents as there are?

There are only several hundred inventive principles that we constantly reuse!
