Module 1      2 Abstract The   work   on   the  Russian   theory   TRIZ,   begun  by  Genrich  Altshuller   in  1946   and  continued since then by his students and followers, has grown into a very impressive  and useful body of work.   When put to use, TRIZ not only helps one solve specific  current problems but, over time, it serves to enlarge the user’s repertoire of thought  patterns in much the same way that studying calculus does. It makes the mind more  flexible   and,   yes,   more   creative.   Altshuller   also   noticed   consistent   patterns   or  “regularities” in the way technological systems evolved over time. He articulated these  patterns in the form of nine Laws of Evolution of Technological Systems.

Module 1      3 Module 1 Deliverables Assignments:  Questions Question:   Write a ten to fifteen page paper that summarizes the concepts and  'laws of evolution' in your own words. Think about and give an example of  something that evolved using each of the laws. Use the examples on each of the  slides to get your thoughts started (but obviously do not use those examples in  your paper, this should be your original thinking!) Response:  TRIZ is a problem solving, strategy development, new research activities  and product value maximizing tool for engineers, scientists, researchers and managers  specially   product   development   professionals.   TRIZ   is   a   methodology,   tool   set,  knowledge base, and model-based technology for generating innovative ideas and  solutions   for   problem   solving.   TRIZ   is   a   Russian   acronym   for   "Teoriya   Resheniya  Izobretatelskikh Zadatch". The development of TRIZ began in 1946 by Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues  in the former USSR. TRIZ, or theory of inventive problem solving, was developed on the  premise that there are universal principles of invention. These premises are the basis for  creative  innovation  that   advance  technology,  and  that   if   these  principles  could   be
