Idea of TRIZ

What TRIZ essentially does is identify, exaggerate and eliminate technical and physical contradictions in technical systems and processes instead of trying to find a "half-hearted" compromise.
The term "technical contradiction" (TC) - is the key to the TRIZ concept. A TC represents two contradictory properties of a technical system: improving one part or property of a machine (e.g. engine power) automatically changes another property for the worse (e.g. weight or fuel consumption). According to TRIZ, a problem is solved only if a TC is recognized and eliminated. So-called 'habitual blindness', psychological inertia and the all too common tendency to make compromises are all overcome in a logical way. Not only is the scope of the search considerably reduced in size even in the most difficult of cases, TRIZ also opens up completely new ways of thinking.
