Developing Innovation culture using TRIZ at NICE, Shenhua Group, China

Hundreds of inventions were evolved with millions of USD savings in product cost. Hundreds of inventors are groomed.

Key take away is to learn how to build Innovation culture in a large organization in short time with huge impact using TRIZ.

TRIZ case study – Frugal Innovative Approach for Multi drive Rotavator system for Farm Implements

Rotavator is rotary soil tillage implement and a Secondary implement runs independent of Tractor. Limitation of current system is in improving the quality of soil pulverization and Fuel efficiency of tractor.

A solution inspired from nature, that mimics a soil digging animal was adopted to address this problem that consumes minimum power. But, the challenge though is from the engineering system design, to make it practical application as a product.

If the shaft gap is small in both rotavator then the better pulverization of soil but the root/stone break the blades, hence we require the close shaft without breaking the blades which are contradictory. Hence the problem is approached through TRIZ methodology in resolving the contradictions

TRIZ case study – TRIZ for Automotive Industry

Automobile industry is experiencing disruptions. In this context you would listen to a case study on how TRIZ gives directions to evolve faster:

Pedict the next evolution of EV using the combination of S curve analysis and Patent tends effectively and fast.
A big contributor in EV is their batteries and weight is increasing with time. TRIz gives directions to reduce their weight, is an interesting need.
Can we evolve a business model on the context of connected cars understanding the business challenges being faced now?

Use of TRIZ in Design to meet Contradictory Requirements of Air Flow and Blocking Visibility

There are several automotive applications requiring a specified air flow to reach ‘a target object’ for its functioning. This requirement can be met by exposing it to ambient air. However, in certain cases it is desirable to keep the target object out of direct line of sight. In such cases, as a compromise, the targets are enclosed inside perforated panels – thus, the partly covered target receives some air flow. This presentation describes use of TRIZ to arrive at concepts by which the target’s visibility is blocked to a higher extent or even completely and still satisfying the air flow requirements.
