Abstract:

The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) has been widely recognized as a powerful systematic innovation
technique that can be applied to a wide arrange of disciplines. This paper focuses on engineering design and
illustrates how modeling methods already familiar to engineering designers can be adapted for use in TRIZ.
Specifically, the 'black-box' modeling technique, common in problem formulation and clarification in engineering
design, is modified for use in TRIZ. The new technique, referred to as Energy, Material, System modeling, can
not only serve as a substitute for substance-field modeling, but as it builds on existing knowledge in the
engineering design community, removes one of the barriers to wider TRIZ adoption by not requiring designers to
learn new and radically different modeling techniques. The efficacy of the technique is illustrated via several
examples.
Keywords: Problem formulation, problem clarification, TRIZ standard solutions.
