It is a pleasure to get the following email from Jasbir Ryait, Chairman of GS Auto International. This was posted to the TRIZ India Yahoo group (firstname.lastname@example.org). Jasbir has been one of the earliest TRIZ proponents and really an innovator in true sense. His company has grown leaps and bounds over the years - Getting comments from him indicates that we are arriving in Innovation Community. Thanks Jasbir, Look forward to more interactions!
I reproduce below what Navneet Bhushan has written about triz thinking on his blog….and would like to add my comments below:
May be the whole idea of TRIZ - trying to craft a theory of inventing if I may, one need to look at - Altshuller talks about following main points1. Focus on Function2. Describe Ideality3. Look at resources - in and around4. Study Contradictions - Merging of Extremes5. Learn from past solutions - knowledge - inventive principles6. Study what happens to various systems as they evolve - study evolution of systems and predict next stage of your system based on other such evolutionary trends7. Do everything systematically - step by step.Let us look at what some others are sayingKaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking by Shingo (Cross posting from my other Blog)Kaizen and the art of creative thinking the new book by the co-creator of Toyota Production System - popularized as Lean Thinking, promises to be an important journey through the Lean Thinking. It is indeed a culmination of years of exprience which goes deep in the execution by thinking through - rather than management theories pushed through the organization - which is the regular way the change is forced on th enterprises. Just quoting the text at the link aboveKaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking The Scientific Thinking MechanismBy Shigeo Shingo Edited by Norman Bodek, Collin McLoughin, Tracy Epley Even the greatest idea can become meaningless in the rush to judgment. To gauge an idea as feasible we must cut our ties to the status quo and find the balance between constructive criticism and judgment. Within that balance we will uncover crucial input for making our ideas a reality.Do download the chapter freely available at Chapter 5 It is called from ideas to reality. It promises to be the solution to last week's objections that people had during the barkamp on "what comes in the way of idea generation".It will be interesting for us to understand the differences and similarities in these two systems - coming from Russia and Japan independently and from two different sources as well (TRIZ from inventions, Lean from producing world class automobiles)
8) THE LAWS OF CAUSALITY: a) For every effect, there is at least one cause.
b) Every cause produces both negative and positive effect.
9) THE ABSTRACT THINKING: The breakthroughs/ innovations occur while iterating between lower and upper levels of abstraction. It is during this iteration process that contradictions get resolved(For the time being)
