ME2004 Project(Design and Make) Student Name: Student ID: Exercise 1 on 40 Inventive Principles Give as many examples as possible for each principle. Principle 1. Segmentation 1. Divide an object into independent parts. Examples: 2. Make an object easy to disassemble. Examples: 3. Increase the degree of fragmentation or segmentation. Examples: Principle 2. Taking out 1. Separate an interfering part or property from an object, or single out the only necessary part (or property) of an object. Examples: Principle 3. Local quality 1. Change an object's structure from uniform to non-uniform, change an external environment (or external influence) from uniform to non-uniform. Examples: 1

2. Make each part of an object function in conditions most suitable for its operation. Examples: 3. Make each part of an object fulfill a different and useful function. Examples: Principle 4. Asymmetry 1. Change the shape of an object from symmetrical to asymmetrical. Examples: 2. If an object is asymmetrical, increase its degree of asymmetry. Examples: Principle 5. Merging 1. Bring closer together (or merge) identical or similar objects, assemble identical or similar parts to perform parallel operations. Examples: 2. Make operations contiguous or parallel; bring them together in time. Examples: 2
Principle 6. Universality 1. Make a part or object perform multiple functions; eliminate the need for other parts. Examples: Principle 7. "Nested doll" 1. Place one object inside another; place each object, in turn, inside the other. Examples: 2. Make one part pass through a cavity in the other. Examples: Principle 8. Anti-weight 1. To compensate for the weight of an object, merge it with other objects that provide lift. Examples: 2. To compensate for the weight of an object, make it interact with the environment (e.g. use aerodynamic, hydrodynamic, buoyancy and other forces). Examples: Principle 9. Preliminary anti-action 1. If it will be necessary to do an action with both harmful and useful effects, this action should be replaced with anti-actions to control harmful effects. Examples: 3
