Application fields of TRIZ

Application fields of TRIZ

The TriSolver Approach enables all innovative thinkers to utilise the full potential of TRIZ for following tasks and application fields:
Conceptual development of new products, processes und business strategies.
Forecasting of the evolution of technological systems, products and processes.
Inventive and technical problem solving.
Comprehensive search for solutions and protection of company expertise with patent 'fences'.
Evaluation of the hidden wants and needs of the customer; customer-driven market segmentation.
Anticipatory failure identification and troubleshooting of new and existing products.
Advanced solutions for idea and knowledge management.

TRIZ Components

The most important components in TRIZ innovation technology can be summarised in the table below with regard to the different ways of solving technical problems. The simpler methods, for example, the 40 inventive principles, can be integrated more easily to be used as active tools but have some restrictions as to their efficiency in solving complex problems.


The most important components of TRIZ


TRIZ - tools, methods

Fields of application
