The revolutionary methodology for enhancing technological innovation called TRIZ is increasingly being adopted by leading corporations around the world to enhance their competitive position. This book explains how the TRIZ methodology harnesses creative principles extracted from thousands of successful patented inventions to help find more innovative solutions to design problems. Written for practicing engineers, product managers, technology managers and engineering students, it demonstrates how to use TRIZ tools for conceptual development of novel technologies, products and manufacturing processes.

Editorial Reviews

"[This book] explores the improvement of existing technologies and technological forecasting. It is for product engineers who demand more than problem-solving analogies. The authors have produced a textbook that includes rigorous topics such as a substance-field language, a sequence of logical procedures to analyze problems, and procedures to develop compromise-free design solutions." - Mark A. Hart, NPDP
