Contrary to the unsystematic trial-and-error methods such as Brainstorming, Synectics or Morphological Analysis, the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) is leading the problem solver systematically and consciously through the problem solving process to develop innovative solutions. Although initially conceived as an innovation methodology for engineers and scientiests, encompassing the classical R&D function, TRIZ has recently been acknowledged as a building block for world class production systems. The author Oliver Pausch examines the use of TRIZ beyond its original base presenting application areas of TRIZ in Production and Operations Management (POM). The reader gets first briefly acquainted with methods and tools of the TRIZ methodology, before contemporary challenges to manufacturing organisations are outlined and further examined in the framework of TRIZ. The practical part contains case studies that are specifically analysed to reveal their TRIZ methodological applicability. The author presents a structured problem solving Road map supporting the problem solver in the aim to generate innovative small and breatkthrough solutions. The book is intented for manufacturing professionals, industrial engineers, scientists and economists in all manufacturing organisations and industries.
