Post-WSCQ Seminar on Extenics (可拓學) and its application

The Post-World Summit for Chinese Quality (WSCQ) seminar on Extenics (可拓學) was organized by  Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) and Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (SEEM), City University of Hong Kong on 9 July 2016.  Before the seminar, I introduced the background of WSCQ and its theme was Quality and Innovation.  Therefore, we invited Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) and Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) to be our guest speakers to continue the yesterday keynote for more details introduction.


Then we took a group photo for memory.  Most participants come from industry.


Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) (Director, Institute of Extenics and Innovation Methods, Guangdong University of Technology) was the first speaker and her topic entitled “Extensive Innovation Method” (可拓創新方法).  Firstly, she introduced the Four Steps of Extensive Innovation (可拓創新四步法) included Model (建模), Extension (拓展), Transformation (變換) and Selection (選擇).


Then Prof. Yang used a pen as an example to introduce Basic-element (基元) theory.  Pen as object used to build model we called it Matter-element (物元) which included the pen’s characteristics and values.  And then Prof. Yang used the function of pen to explain Affair-element (事元).  Pen used to write which was an action.  Its characteristics include who used it, what to be done after use it and what method to be used, when and where to use it, etc.  Finally, Prof. Yang employed the pen’s structure (or components) to explain the Relationships-element (關係元).  


After those consideration, a Model of Pen’s Basic-element (基元) was established.  The purpose to build such model was to facilitate standardization, refinement, quantitative and computerization.


Prof. Yang introduced Extension Analysis (拓展分析) that included Divergence (發散樹), Correlative (相關網), Implication (蘊含系) and Opening-up (分合鏈).


The four conjugation pairs were also discussed and they were “Nonmaterial part (虛部) vs Material part (實部)”, “Soft part (軟部) vs Hard part (硬部)”, “Latent part (潛部) and Apparent part (顯部)” and “Negative part (負部) and Positive part (正部)”, as well as “Intermediate part (中介部)” in each pairs .


Lastly, Prof. Yang briefed the Selection (選擇) in seven steps.  Industry needed to participate in the first three steps that were to select the measurable objectives, confirmation of weighting and first evaluation.  


Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) (Founder of Extenics and The Director of International Academy of Extenics (HK)) was the second speaker and his topic named “Creative Thinking Revolution - Extensive Innovation Method” (創意的革命—可拓創新方法). Firstly, Prof. Cai discussed the Conjugation Analysis in more details.  


Some examples employed Conjugation pairs were discussed as follows.
-          “Nonmaterial part (虛部) vs Material part (實部)” - The Empty Fort (諸葛亮的空城計)
-          “Soft part (軟部) vs Hard part (硬部)” – Two Chinese sayings: “one boy is a boy, two boys half a boy, and three boys no boy” (三個和尚沒水喝) and “Three heads are better than one” (三個臭皮匠,勝過一個諸葛亮。)
-          “Negative part (負部) and Positive part (正部)” – UK prisoner boat incident and then policy changed from “Off-shore number” to “Landed number” so as to solve the problem.
-          “Latent part (潛部) and Apparent part (顯部)” – As iceberg that we only observed the top one above water.


After that Prof. Cai use this four conjugation pairs to develop new product.


He said that new product creation had three innovation methods.  The first one was come from customer need which had not been fulfilled. (從需要出發,無中生有)


Second innovation method was from existing product in which employed extenics theory to transform and improve to be new product. (從已有的產品出發)


The third one was come from the disadvantages of existing product. (從現有產品的缺點出發)
Another usage of Four Steps of Extensive Innovation was to solve the contradiction problems.


After the presentation, I on behalf of HKSQ presented souvenir to Prof. Cai Wen and Prof. Yang Chunyan.



Then I took a photo with all my teachers.

Then we had lunch together.


Finally, we led Prof. Cai Wen and Prof. Yang Chunyan to visit the art exhibition in CityU.


It combined art and information technology together.
