Editorial Reviews

Review

"This text is an excellent addition to the TRIZ literature. As we continue to introduce TRIZ to the Engineering Community at International Truck and Engine Corporation, this is the book that I will use. This is one of the best books that I have encountered to date on TRIZ."
Dr. James Bradley, TRIZ Journal

"[This book] explores the improvement of existing technologies and technological forecasting. It is for product engineers who demand more than problem-solving analogies. The authors have produced a textbook that includes rigorous topics such as a substance-field language, a sequence of logical procedures to analyze problems, and procedures to develop compromise-free design solutions." - Mark A. Hart, NPDP

Book Description

This book describes a revolutionary methodology for enhancing technological innovation called TRIZ. The TRIZ methodolgy is increasingly being adopted by leading corporations around the world to enhance their competitive position. The authors explain how the TRIZ methodology harnesses creative principles extracted from thousands of successful patented inventions to help you find better, more innovative, solutions to your own design problems. Whether you're trying to make a better beer can, find a new way to package microchips or reduce the number of parts in a lawnmower engine, this book can help.

By Stefan Posch on February 7, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Innovation on demand offers a fascinating introduction to TRIZ. It provides very valuable content in a very compact form. It is logically structured and guides the reader step by step into the world of TRIZ. The presentation of the theory is perfectly accompanied by impressive life examples and applications of TRIZ, which help the beginner to understand the power of TRIZ.

You can read this book "on the surface" and it will give you a good introduction, you can also use it as a work book and you will get a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of TRIZ.

What makes this book so extremely valuable is that it focuses on the essence. I never found a book that is so focused. It reveals the underlying thinking process of TRIZ. With the help of this book I am starting to understand the power of ARIZ, an element of TRIZ that is often neglected in other books on the subject.

The presentation of how the laws of evolution can be used for technology forecasting and determination of high-potential innovations is for me one of the great highlights of this book.

Using this book as a work book requires quite some reading discipline. It is focused and demanding, and that is exactly what I want. It gives the certainty that having understood its content will bring me a great step ahead.

Definitely my favourite on TRIZ.

Victor Fey has been known among the TRIZ community as one of the best TRIZ educators and I've been awaiting the release of this book with considerable anticipation. After reading the book I can say that it was well worth the wait.

The book is well-written and, in my mind, will benefit most a person who has either heard about or is somewhat familiar with TRIZ and wants to learn the TRIZ methodology for practical purposes. At the same time current TRIZ practitioners will also find a number of fresh ideas that will further their TRIZ expertise. For example, in the chapter "Resolving System Conflicts," the authors present a novel way of organizing various and previously separate methods for conflict resolution into a coherent structure and sequence of approaches. The chapter on substance-field analysis presents the most comprehensive discussion of the subject available in English. This chapter is reinforced in Appendix 2 by the list of "Standard approaches" for sufields usage. In the chapter on ARIZ the steps of the algorithm are finally detailed to the level possible to follow - a first time occurrence in book form.

Over 70 pages of the book are devoted to an explanation of the laws of technological system evolution and how to use them in developing new concepts. The depth and amount of material represents a significant advancement over the previous Victor Fey's and Don Clausing's book, "Effective Innovation: The Development of Winning Technologies."

The book follows a well-laid logical format. Each chapter builds on the previous one, so reading the chapters independently or in other than the book's order may weaken the result. Each chapter covers one of the major tools of TRIZ, followed by exercises.

Over the past few years, I have often come across highly intriguing tidbits on TRIZ and accounts of TRIZ-inspired successes in the industrial world. TRIZ is credited with the development of Crest White Strips, Boeing's $1.5 billion contract with Japan and Italy, Mars' Flavia coffee brewer, and

$1 billion that Samsung added to its bottom line, etc. This books makes it clear why in a time of constant technological change, TRIZ methods of systematic innovation can promote an unstoppable development process for a myriad of product and technology development challenges.

This book offers a lucid and concise description of TRIZ concepts and tools. The material is well structured, and it smoothly guides the reader through the discussions. The plethora of examples and illustrations provide solid support for the discussed ideas and methods. That does not mean the

text is an undemanding read, but it does mean that if the reader treats it seriously, much will be learned.

This is the first book I have read on TRIZ, and I enjoyed it. I will probably buy other books on TRIZ, first of all those by Altshuller.

This is an excellent text book on Modern TRIZ. The explanation is clear and is filled with examples. It covers a wide scope of topics despite its size (only 200+ pages). Its TRIZ differs from the traditional TRIZ ... there is no contradiction matrix or the 40 principles... they are converted into Standards (of patterns). It uses model made up of circles (to represent object and tools) and interconnecting arrows of different types to represent the actions (good and harmful) on one another to represent the problem world. By following the Standards, we can be guided on how to solve the system contradiction. It is excellent.

Fey and Rivin give an excellent guided tour through TRIZ. You gain a deep understanding of the process of innovation, of the ARIZ algorithm and the laws of technological evolution. After reading several other disappointing books this one is my first choice on the subject.
