Purpose

Provide a TRIZ Case Study presentation showing how TRIZ rapid innovation sessions can solve reliability problems for redesign. Demonstrate how the R-TRIZ table was used to isolate optional design principles for redesign for reliability (DFR).  Show how TRIZ complements and fits within the Six Sigma Design for Reliability Process.

 

Objectives

Demonstrate rapid innovation solutions, within 35 minutes

Demonstrate how R-TRIZ table enables Reliability constraint solutions

 



Howard Cooper is a Reliability Engineer for General Dynamics, facilitating “Design for Reliability” (DFR).  He is a DFSS Black Belt specialized at facilitating DFMEA and TRIZ Structured Innovation. Previous to GDLS he worked DFR at GE Medical Systems and spent 26-years consulting for manufacturing automation controls and computer controlled machine tool reliability.  His consulting focused to help Fortune 500tm companies eliminate 70% - 92% of their unscheduled equipment downtime, in 30-60 days!  He coined the phrase, FISH (Functional Interface Stress Hardening), a Six Sigma DMAIC methodology he developed for rapidly increasing equipment reliability and uptime while minimizing overhead expense and yielding improved equipment life.  Mr. Cooper has coached manufacturers, design teams, hospitals, telecom centers, data centers, semiconductor fabrication, oil companies, prison security and control systems, distribution control systems and factories to achieve increased uptime and profits.  His seminar: “How To FISH, to Eliminate 70-92% of Your Unscheduled Equipment Downtime in 30-60 Days” is often rated as “most valued seminar of my career” by operations, facility, maintenance and plant engineers, manufacturing and plant managers.

A tool to estimate the strength and life of a Patent

TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) classifies inventions into five novelty levels. At level 1 are slight modifications of the existing systems.  At level 2 are those inventions that resolve a system conflict or contradiction using usually inventive solution or inventive principle used to solve similar problems in other systems.    At level 3, the inventions change one subsystem or resolve the system conflicts in a fundamental way. At level 4, the invention gives birth to new systems using interdisciplinary approaches. The level 5 inventions are closer to a recently discovered scientific phenomenon. See article for a complete discussion.

Alexander Selyutsky - a key figure in the history of TRIZ!

Alexander Selyutsky

Selyutsky Alexander Borisovich was born April 6, 1933 to an intelligent Jewish family residing in Leningrad. During the World War II the plant where his father was working was evacuated to the Urals, and the family (the parents and Alexander) moved to Chelyabinsk. Here, Alexander graduated from high school. He wanted to go to a military school, but didn’t pass vision test and entered the Chelyabinsk Polytechnic Institute. In his first year he was forced to learn boxing (because of frequent anti-Semitic attacks) and became a Komsomol activist.

After graduation, he was sent to Petrozavodsk Onega tractor plant, where he worked as a designer. He continued leading a very active social life, organized and led voluntary militia patrolling the streets of the city because the situation was very criminal. In the search for more satisfying work he became interested in patenting, completed appropriate courses and became a patent agent.

In 1960, Alexander married Dolly Naumovna Audleys, and had a daughter Alla in 1961. The same year G.S Altshuller published a book " “Learn how to invent"[1] . After reading this book in 1965 Selyutsky wrote a letter to Altshuller. This letter started their acquaintance by correspondence. Since then, Alexander became one of the most dedicated Altshuller’s disciples and an active promoter of the emerging new science.

They finally met in 1968 in Dzintary (near Riga), at the seminar organized by the Central Board of VOIR (state leading inventors’ and innovators’ society) that invited Altshuller and several of his associates. It was the first time that Alexander and others got a chance to work under the direct guidance of Altshuller and to learn from him. Later, in 1983, Alexander participated as one of the instructors in the seminar conducted by G.S. Altshuller in Moscow at the Institute for continuous education for chemical and petroleum industries.
