Is it an economical problem? In fact, there is no secret! Chances are that your problem is not going to disappear or solve itself if you just ponder on possible solutions. These thoughts occur to you even without labeling either axis or describing the system we are talking about. It is possible to graph a problem that has multiple contradictions and relationships in graphical form, the simplest of which would look like this Fig. This was the basis for identifying the 40 inventive principles discussed in Chap. Quite the opposite, it is time for rational observation and decision making. In many cases, we find that these added features are ones that consumers need or think they need and are willing to pay for. I am the the Founder of SuccessGrid and I am so grateful you're here to be part of this awesome community.
This paper examines a new hypothesis: that the provocative stimulus presented by any randomly selected inventive principle facilitates concept generation just as effectively as using the historical contradiction matrix to guide inventive principle selection. Is it an issue in your relationship with your partner, boss, parent or child? Lastly, you might have experience with other creativity tools that have their basis in psychology as opposed to science and found them lacking in value or productivity in many challenging situations. Give it your best try and you might as well succeed. The Ideal Final Result reviews the basics of this left brained, but at the same time, very creative process for problem solving that uses a basic algorithm developed through the study of millions of patents. In my days as a chemical engineer, and in the training I do for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, this curve is commonplace in training and analysis when describing many chemical process unit operations. These types of tools include simple brainstorming, structured brainstorming processes such as Creative Problem Solving, mind mapping, Lateral Thinking,® and Six Thinking Hats®. Corn growers and corn consumers will not.
However innovative chemical process design needs the support of a systematic innovation approach to guide engineers in the creation of new or improved chemical processes. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York. This may require substantial changes in the type of people hired, the schools where recruiting is done, and what groups and societies are of interest and are supported. Scientists have repeatedly studied people who do well in life, solving problems effectively and almost effortlessly. What does it imply to you? Frequently resources, prioritization, and business issues are the primary driver in decision making. The usage of the Miniature Dwarfs method was presented here to minimize the marine hull resistance of a passenger ship in the conflicting situation, where there is a simultaneous necessity to provide both large ship capacity as well as high speed.
The challenge facing a manager is finding the optimum solution to a problem using the resources at hand and the constraints and timing of the situation. Just gather enough information, so that you can make informed decisions. This directly hinders the designer from pushing the cost further down or achieving the targeted cost as it is only looking for a compromise as its solution. For example, according to Jan Koch only 14% of managers are familiar with some technique that improves creativity, while only 3% use any Koch, 2008. I started this website with the intention of educating and inspiring people to always strive to Raise the Standards to Achieve Greatness.
I hope this book assists you in better understanding of this valuable and unique process. At this stage you need to be open and honest with yourself. Try out the possible solutions. If you look back on the whole process, you might realize that you could have spent more time doing one thing and less time doing another. Scientists have repeatedly studied people who do well in life, solving problems effectively and almost effortlessly.
Organizations also frequently use psychological assessment tools to assist employees in career development, but they are seldom used in a proactive way to improve group problem-solving. From the study of the most inventive patents, it was possible to map contradictions between these parameters and identify the most frequently used inventive principles that were used to resolve these contradictions. If we try to go beyond a certain point in improving one parameter, the other parameter gets worse. They are graphical representations of contradictions. The use of a combined approach in chemical process improvement may increase the efficiency of concept selection avoiding time waste. In a case where there may be differing views of this, it may be worthwhile to use the tools directed at the various end results and see where we end up and see what commonality there might be. No one can sell you success, but you can achieve it for yourself! However, the effectiveness in achieving its goals is quite challenging as there are a number of conflicting issues in the process of driving down the cost toward the target cost.
Is it an economical problem? This is a difficult concept to grasp as most of us, while thinking this way, are already thinking about all the reasons that this cannot be achieved. We need to take a little side journey at this point to discuss in more detail something we alluded to earlier in our discussions about the Ideal Result. How does the manger know how a solution suggested will be interpreted or generated? Look at the results and learn from them. There is no magical solution and no mystery to it. The search of the potential solutions was carried out with the use of miniature dwarfs; the findings were interpreted with respect to the system under analysis and the stated technical issues. So, try to gain some perspective and see the big picture, until you see clearly where and what your problem is. That all reasonable solutions have been suggested? If you have failed, you apparently need to make some improvements to your approach and try again.
The concept brings the cost parameter to the same level with the design or technical parameter. The issue and the conflicting situation were both presented and modelled. During this process, the authors observed that no matter which principle was used, some mental leap was needed to apply it. Bosses and subordinates will not. It is not necessary to use all the pieces all of the time any more than it is necessary to use algebra to add and subtract simple numbers.
