The seminar entitled "Pragmatic Open Innovation" was organized by and co-organizer by Institute of Systematic Innovation Hong Kong (ISIHK) and The IMSE Department, HKU on 20th July 2017. Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) was one of supporting organizations. Among numerous TRIZ (Theory for Inventive Problem Solving) tools for innovation, there is a sub-set of pragmatic tools for practically exercising the Open Innovation concept. Arrived at the venue, I took a photo with guest speaker Dr. Sergei Ikovenko (President of the International TRIZ Association) and ISI exco members and organizers.

Then I took some photos with my quality friends.

Before the seminar, we took a group photo with all participants.
In the beginning, Dr. Sergei Ikovenko (President of the International TRIZ Association) briefed the topic “Pragmatic Innovation with TRIZ” and briefed the history of TRIZ development.
Dr. Ikovenko briefed the classical TRIZ about Engineering Contradictions and Altshuller’s Matrix. There were 39 engineering parameters and 40 Inventive Principles.
Then he mentioned the trends of engineering system evolution. The trend showed from Monolith to its differentiated parameters, to One-joint, Multi-jointed, then to Elastic, Powder, Liquid and Gaseous, finally to Field. Mobile is one of good examples to show this trend. However, Dr. Ikovenko used Car Body to demonstrate this trend of increasing dynamization.
After that he introduced the evolution of TRIZ. He told us that classical TRIZ developed well in 1960s. Then its evolution on design and added some tools like Trimming until 1980s. After that people added “TRIZplus” indicating a practical solution. After 2000s, it moved to product’s MPV (Main Parameters of Value) and we named back to “TRIZ” now.
Dr. Ikovenko explained the application of TRIZ using Function – Cost Diagram to identify what TRIZ tools to be used and valuable. Trimming could be used to remove the most expensive part with low functionality. Trimming is an analytical tool for removing certain components and redistributing their useful functions among the remaining System or Supersystem components. Then Dr. Ikovenko demonstrated several examples included Motorcycle trimmed the gas tank, etc.
Finally, Dr. Ikovenko briefed the product innovation roadmap from Problem Identification, Problem Solving and Concept Substantiation. All tools insider the roadmap were involved in MATRIZ Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 training content.
At the end, Dr. Ikovenko briefed different TRIZ application and it was interested inTechnology Validation, Evaluation and Search. Then some processes in video were showed as application examples.
Prof. George Q. Huang (Dept. Head, IMSE) on behalf of IMSE Dept., HKU presented a souvenir to Dr. Sergei Ikovenko.
