Application of OTSM NofP for sustainable innovation: from zero to the market place

Here it is just one example of OTSM Network of problems application in combination with many others OTSM-TRIZ based tools. The product is on the market now. it was created by on of my students of Advanced Master in Innovative Design (include more than 300 hours of OTSM-TRIZ study). The new product have several revolutionary solutions and open new horizon for the product development based on OTSM Network of Problems (NofP). As you can see those 300 hours of study pay back much morte than one day training for 40 principles. It seems very simple now. As they say in UK - it is easy if you know how....
However it was not so easy to overcome mental inertia of colleags inorder to repose problems in unusual way and find a simple solutions. OTSM Network of Problems was helpful to overcome resistance of bosses and colleagues. You can read more about resitance to really innovative ideas in the first posts of this blog.

Could innovation become a culture through all ranks of an organization?

The main tool of Classical TRIZ and its theoretical background can be seen as a powerful platform for integration many other methodologies into unified system. Why?
When people often use ARIZ and familiar with original Altshuller's Philosophy of Classical TRIZ they obtain certain culture of thinking that can be used in many ways in various improvement and innovation methodologies. Two generations of OTSM

If we always do just something that seems real from the beginning then we will always will stay in the red ocean and repeat the same things  that all our competitors do. The art of strategy is the art to develop strategy that seems unrealistic for most competitors 

TRIZ based software and semantic approach

I believe that Semantic approach that is used by Invention Machine Corporation is not restricted by the direct link from functional diagram to data base of solutions as some people believe. The point is that there is not data base of solutions. Computer 'read and understand' texts

What for OTSM-TRIZ network of problems/solutions can be good?

OTSM Network of problem is a technique for posing correct problem out of fuzzy situation.

The method somehow links to functional analysis, project management, cause effect analysis, failure mode analysis, Altshuller's schema of powerful thinking (4 dimensions system operator) and other analytical methods of OTSM-TRIZ, but not only. It allowed easy  integration with many other analytical techniques useful for practical management of complex problematic situations.
It can be used also for some project planning, strategy planning, initial stages of complex system modeling (Simple as well), UML Use cases developin,  multi-disciplinary optimization and

OTSM-TRIZ software: Integration with existing popular software

Today I have posted new discussion topic at my Linkedin Group - TRIZ based Software.
This group is dedicated to discuss some functionality that OTSM-TRIZ can bring to software and how then the software can be helpful for solving problems in professional and private life.
