This experiential workshop will impart the fundamentals of TRIZ – a powerful methodology for the development of breakthrough technological solutions. Participants will receive a hands-on experience in solving numerous real-life complex product and process development challenges gleaned from various fields of modern engineering. Participants will prepare for the Associate Certification test offered by the Altshuller Institute for TRIZ Studies.

The participants will learn:

  • How to correctly define complex problems
  • How to develop conceptual breakthrough solutions
  • How to replace trade-offs with innovative solutions satisfying all conflicting requirements
  • How to objectively determine the most promising directions in the evolution of your product or technology
