40 Inventive Principles with examples The 40 Principles are the easiest TRIZ tool to use, and the one most likely to give you good solutions fairly easily and quickly. They are the 40 ways the world has found to solve contradictions. The Russian Theory of Inventive Problem Solving, TRIZ, came from many years of analysis of the world’s successful patents and problem solutions. TRIZ researchers discovered that the most powerful solutions (innovative solutions) are the ones in which contradictions are eliminated and that they only occurred in about 20% of the patents analysed. When studying which patents uncovered and overcame a contradiction they recorded all the ways used and to their astonishment they found just 40 different strategies - even after examining over half a million innovative patents. Today in the West most engineers are taken aback to find there are such simple, and easy to learn, rules for solving engineering problems. Yet these 40 Inventive Principles may be used to help solve both technical and non-technical problems both quickly and simply. They show you how to tap into others’ work and good results and with the Contradiction Matrix and Separation Principles show you where others have successfully used the Principles to eliminate contradictions and find powerful solutions. When learning TRIZ most people ask the following questions:- 1. How do I know which Principle to use? 2. Do they solve both technical and physical contradictions? 3. Will only one be relevant? 4. Do I have systematically to locate the right principles or can I just read through all 40? 5. How do I translate from the suggested Principle to my Solution? There are some answers to these questions here . The important and exciting reality is that there are only 40 and the fastest way of getting started with TRIZ is to become familiar with all 40, and use them in conjunction with whatever system you normally operate to solve problems. In the following page we describe each of the 40 Principles and give simple examples of where they are used in real life at home and at work. Remember each example demonstrates how a contradiction has been solved and it is always worth looking for that contradiction.
