I attended the last two free courses entitled “Art of Borrowability” organized by Hong Kong Productivity Council on 10 & 17 June 2010. I summarized as follows for sharing.
Three principle of the science of borrowability (抄學三決) are shown as follows:
i) Limitation of problem. (Solve the problem cause Innovation)
The first step to solve the problem is to identify and describe the problem.
It can be summarized in six pairs of words. They are:
More vs Less; Large vs Small; Long vs Short; High vs Low; Have vs Haven’t; Fast vs Slow.The second step is Copy and Change.
i) Newest and Oldest
Newest means advance and Oldest means classic.
ii) Give up the original idea
The barrier of Copeativity (抄創) is love of own idea.
Art of Borrowability (抄的藝術)
Corresponding three principle of the art of borrowability (抄藝三離) are shown as follows:
i) Geographical features
iii) Kind of customer
(The above items show the copy far enough. (抄得夠遠))
Lecture 4 (17 June 2010)

The following show top seven trends in 2010:
i) Unintended environment protection

Trainer gave an additional one named “Cheap, Small, Convenience and Save” (平細便慳).
Copy variance enough (抄得夠異)
Disassembly things to be elements and then copy
(Using iPhone for exercise)
Copy deep enough (抄得夠深)
It needs to copy the blueprint or background principle.
Copeativity (抄創) principles are shown as follows:
i) Across boundary

In here, we copy the principles rather than elements.
