At the same time, the importance of addressing secondary (consequent) problems has been increasing with widening practical (professional) application of TRIZ. In fact, the higher is the level of the obtained solution, the wider is the range of subsequent problems (in numbers and complexity) that must be resolved to ensure successful implementation.
The proposed paper will address the most typical situations and types of secondary problems and practical recommendations on how to approach them. The paper also will include a number of practical cases illustrating the importance of formulating and prompt resolution of secondary problems
