Abstract:

This article investigates the use of TRIZ and Axiomatic Design to solve the problem of poor acoustics in
the historic Schwab Auditorium on the Penn State University Park campus. The problem is dissected to its
functional requirements and the design parameters which govern the requirements. TRIZ and Axiomatic
Design are then used to create an uncoupled design which solves all the functional requirements with one
design parameter each. Finally there is a suggestion on how to combine all of the solutions to solve the
poor acoustic problem in Schwab Auditorium.
