TRIZ is a methodology for systematizing creativity. Based on the study of contradictions, this tool is particularly adapted to technical problems.
The matrix of contradiction is the best-known tool of the TRIZ. Built in Altshuller’s initial idea that a problem has already been solved, it quickly provides solutions.
SIT, Systematic Inventive Thinking, is a development method created in the 1990s in Israel. Derived from the TRIZ, it is a practical approach to creativity, innovation and problem solving.
ASIT (Advanced Systematic Inventive Thinking) is an inventive problem-solving method developed by SIT, developed in the 1990s by Altshuller student Roni Horowitz.
USIT, for Unified Structured Inventive Thinking, is a method of solving design problems.
Abbreviation of Dimension, Time and Cost, the DTC operator is a tool developed by Atschuller to increase our creative faculties by lifting psychological inertia
Altshuller defines the strong spirit as our ability to conceive of non-usual ideas. For him, this corresponds to our ability to be aware that a system (car) breaks down into super-system (traffic, Road…) and subsystem (engine, steering wheel…).
Vépole analysis is a graphical modeling of technical systems. This analysis is based on the Substance/field analysis (S-field), which is the acronym in Russian (“Vechestvo”-substance, and “pole”-field). Through the analysis of the model, we will be able to choose from the 76 standard solutions proposed by Altshuller.
ARIZ, meaning in Russian inventifs1 problem resolution algorithm, is the method developed by Altshuller to implement the tools of the TRIZ and guide the designer in the identification of the situation until the identification of the solution .
Developed by William Gordon and then taken over by Altshuller in the development of TRIZ, this method aims to lift the psychological inertia.
The Golden Fish technique comes from a Russian tale “The Little Golden Fish” written by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin in 1833.
