Systematic innovation

a new method for resolving design and manufacturing problems in new product development

The creative process involved in the development of new products is not one of blind chance but rather one that can be learned and encouraged and evolved through structured creativity methods. Systematic Innovation (SI), also known as TRIZ, or TIPS (from the Russian and English acronyms for the Theory for Inventive Problem Solving) is one such method. SI is a knowledge-based system based on the patents of Russian researcher G.S. Altshuller, who studied patents from all around the world. When an NPD team reaches an impasse, SI can help overcome the teams' psychological inertia by providing principles, standard solutions to standard problems, and problem analysis. In addition, SI has a forecasting component that allow predictions to be made about future technical innovations.
