Course Schedule:
 This course runs from 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern, each day with breaks scheduled throughout.

This course provides a basic introduction to the Inventive Problem Solving Process known as “TRIZ” (Russian acronym for “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving”). TRIZ is a structured, “left-brained” approach to breakthrough innovation through the use of patterns of invention documented in the most inventive of the world’s patents.  This analysis demonstrates an overall algorithm, which when followed, allows anyone to provide breakthrough and novel solutions to problems as well as new product and business concepts.

You Will Learn To:

  • Identify patterns of invention and describe how to use breakthrough ideas from parallel universe technology areas
  • Explain the basic TRIZ problem solving algorithm and its basic tools including Ideal Final Result, resource identification and use, contradiction resolution, 40 inventive principles and the TRIZ contradiction table
  • Explain how to use TRIZ for failure prediction and analysis
  • Explain how to use TRIZ for business and organizational problem solving
  • Describe TRIZ Lines of Evolution and how to use them for strategic planning, new product development, and forecasting
  • Explain how to integrate TRIZ with other enterprise tools and assessments
  • Describe how to integrate TRIZ effectively within your organization

Who Should Attend
Engineers, scientists, and technical managers focused on breakthrough innovation and problem solving. Individual professionals and anyone interested in adding a breakthrough problem solving tool to problem definition processes such as Six Sigma and DFSS. Innovation managers interested in improving the quality of inventions and intellectual property.

Course Materials

  • Downloadable notes and exercises via ASME's learning management system
  • A copy of the book, The Ideal Result: What It Is and How to Achieve It, (Digital Edition) written by the instructor.

Course Requirement
​A passing score of 70% or above on the exam at the completion of the class is required to receive your Certificate of Completion for this course. The assessment evaluates your understanding and applicable knowledge of course material.

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.  Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.
