ISIHK TRIZ Application Sharing Seminar

Institute of Systematic Innovation, HK (ISIHK) invited Dr. Yongwei Sun (VP for Industrial Relations & Level 4 Certified, MATRIZ; China Coordinator of MATRIZ and Expert Member of China Council for Promoting Six Sigma, China Association for Quality)  to share his TRIZ experience on 19 Jun 2016 (It is father’s day!).  Firstly, Dr. Sun introduced himself that he is the DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) Master Black Belt of National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy (NICE) since 2012. He is the Vice President of MA TRIZ (the International TRIZ Association), a member of MA TRIZ presidium, and expert member of China Council for Promoting Six Sigma. He holds MA TRIZ Level 4 certificates. Prior joining NICE, Dr. Sun worked in GE for 7 years, successively as a research scientist, Black Belt, and program manager.

Since all cases are real and sensitive, no photo took and kept confidential.  So I would like to summarize some key points on Dr. Sun experience of employing TRIZ for sharing below.
i)            IP analysis and strategy are very important.
ii)           MATRIZ Level 1 tools used to “Identify the Problem”; Level 2 tools used to “Solve the Problem” and Level 3 tools used for “Idea Verification”. 
iii)          Most frequency use and important tools in level 1 are “Function Analysis (FA)”, “Cause and Effect Chain Analysis (CECA)” and “Trimming”.
iv)          If the solution of problem is very easy you think out, it must not a real problem otherwise the company’s engineers had already solved it.  That’s why we need TRIZ engineer.
v)           Why problem is so difficulty to be solved?  Because we haven’t discover the real problems.
vi)          When CECA was employed, it should be at least down to 5 levels (like 5 Why).
vii)         Why his customer’s engineers no resistant to use TRIZ?  It is because they need to solve that problem immediately. (High incentive!)
viii)       In his example, Physical Contradictions appeared in many cases.  However, it is very seldom to use Technical Contradictions (Contradiction Table).
ix)          So he used Separating Principle frequently including separation in space, time, relation and system level. (More Dynamic)

Finally, we took a group photo for memory.
