Offered jointly by AIChE and ASME:
Discover how to solve problems and create new product and business concepts using TRIZ, an inventive problem-solving process. You’ll learn how this structured, left-brain approach to breakthrough innovation uses patterns of invention documented in the most inventive of the world’s patents. And you’ll learn an overall algorithm for use in prediction, forecasting, analysis and planning. You’ll receive all course notes, problems and solutions in addition to a copy of the TRIZ 40 Inventive Principles and the book, The Ideal Result: What It Is and How to Achieve It, by Jack Hipple.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- Patterns of invention and how to use breakthrough ideas from parallel-universe technology areas
- The basic TRIZ problem-solving algorithm and its basic tools, including Ideal Final Result, resource identification and use, contradiction resolution, 40 inventive principles and the TRIZ contradiction table
- How to use TRIZ for failure prediction and analysis
- How to use TRIZ for business and organizational problem-solving
- The TRIZ Lines of Evolution and how to use them for strategic planning, new product development, and forecasting
- How to integrate TRIZ with other enterprise tools and assessments
- How to integrate TRIZ effectively within your organization
Who should attend:
- Engineers, scientists, and technical managers focused on breakthrough innovation and problem-solving
- Professionals interested in adding a breakthrough problem-solving tool to problem definition processes such as Six Sigma and DFSS
- Innovation managers interested in improving the quality of inventions and intellectual property
