The Examination of the Extension Innovation Method Level 3 Certification (可拓創新方法三級水平認證) was organized by International Academy of Extenis (國際可拓學研究院) and Guangzhou Extenics Information Technology Co., Ltd. (廣州可拓學信息科技有限公司) from 1st & 2nd Jun 2019 in Guangzhou. This examination separated into three parts: (1) Level 3 exercise paper prepared before the examination, (2) 3.5hr open book examination and (3) case presentation.
In day one (1st Jun 2019) at 2:00pm, Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) welcomed us for this examination and briefed the rules.
Then we started the examination. Prof. Yang is one of invigilator.
Prof. Xingsen Li (李興森) and Dr. Tang Long (湯龍) are also invigilators. We all focused on the examination questions.
In day two (2nd Jun 2019) at 8:00am, Prof. Yang introduced the presentation sequence and rules that 15 min for presentation and 5 min for Q&A. I summarized examiners comments (included Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文), Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) and Prof. Li Xingsen (李興森) for further teaching skills improvement.
Before the presentation, I took a photo with Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文), Prof. Yang Chunyan (楊春燕) and Prof. Li Xingsen (李興森).
I also took a photo with Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) and Ms. Liu Hui (劉惠) (Chairlady, Guangzhou Extenics Information Technology Co., Ltd.) for memory.
The first speaker was Dr. Yang Xiaohui (楊小輝) and his topic was “Parametric Matter-element and its Application (參變量基元及其應用)”.
Dr. Yang explained different examples and briefed the application.
Prof. Cai Wen said the parameter could be time and space (時間和空間) and parametric matter-element used to describe the change from quantitative to qualitative (從量變到質變).
The second speaker was Prof. Ma Lixiu (馬立修) (山東理工大學) and his topic selected “Compound Element and its Application (複合元及其應用)”.
He introduced the 7 types of Compound Elements based on Matter-element, Affair-element and Relation-element combination. However, Prof. Ma improved six more detailed combination among them and got six more combination Compound Elements. Finally, he said that Establishing Model is the fundamental of innovation.
Prof. Cai Wen asked questions that Why introduce Compound Element and What is it, as well as, using example to explain it.
The third speaker was Ms. Ma Shumei (馬書美) and her topic named “Affair-element Implication and its Application (事元蘊含系及其應用)”.
She used cooking as example and explained Affair-element Implication from buying foods to cook the food.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked what to be done by using Affair-element Implication.
Prof. Yang Chunyan said Implication included Existential Implication (存在蘊含) and Causal Implication (因果蘊含). Sometimes it needs to use n-dimension affair-element for explanation.
Prof. Cai Wen added the topic key part and supplementary part should be in order. He also said the implication direction could be bi-direction or one-direction.
The fourth speaker was Mr. Yang Xusheng (楊旭生) and his presentation was “Transformation Operation and its Application (變換的運算及其應用)”.
Mr. Yang briefed different cases under different transformation including (1) Substitution transformation, (2) Increasing/decreasing transformation, (3) Expansion/contraction transformation, (4) Decomposition transformation and (5) Duplication transformation. Then he also mentioned basic operation of extension transformation.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked what type of transformation for adding catalysis for chemical reaction. It should be PRODUCT transformation.
Prof. Yang Chunyan suggested to use table for example would be better.
Prof. Cai Wen said it started from the need-oriented and to explain the change.
The Prof. Jiang Fan (江帆) (School of Mechanical and Electric Engineering, Guangzhou University) was the fifth speaker and his topic was “Conductive Transformation and its Application (傳導變換及其應用)”.
Prof. Jiang said the implication relationship should be between active transformation and conductive transformation. Many people used conductive transformation for innovation and solving contradiction problem. Lastly, he used mechanical part as example to explain the application of conductive transformation.
Prof. Yang Chunyan asked what relationship between Conductive Transformation and Implication. It is causal relationship (因果關係).
I (Dr. Lotto Lai) (HKSQ) was the sixth speaker and my presentation named “The Third Creative Method and its Application (第三創造法及其應用)”.
Firstly, I briefed the First Creative Method named “Create from nothing (无中生有)” which started from the customer needs and the Second Creative Method named “Change in existing (有中求变)”, as well as, the Third Creative Method named “Change from demerits (改缺成优)”.
Finally, I demonstrated the third creative method step by step to create a need product of leather shoes which could use for conference and tour together. Seven ideas were developed and three of them selected through superiority evaluation method.
Prof. Yang Chunyan corrected me that the characteristic of “Maintain” should be “Degree of Maintenance” and the presentation of dependent function should be more precise (e.g. k(x) =).
Prof. Li Xingsen asked what direction to extend apart from these three types of creative methods. I thought that it could be started from advantage. However, it could be also belong to the Second Creative Method.
The seventh speaker was Ms. Lu Bihong (陸碧虹) and her topic was “Matter Conjugate Part and its Application (物的共軛部及其應用)”.
After explained the theory, Ms. Lu used “IP” as example to employ non-material and material part to analysis their transformation.
Prof. Cai Wen said Objective Nonmaterial Part (客觀虛部) started from business and Subjective Nonmaterial Part (主觀虛部) was human related.
Prof. Yang Chunyan asked the characteristic of positive and negative part.
The eighth speaker was Mr. Zhong Bing (鍾兵) and his presentation named “Relation-element Divergent Tree and its Application (關係元發散樹及其應用)”.
He used compound board in engineering project as example to explain relation-element and its divergent analysis.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked what the systematic relation-element was.
Prof. Yang Chunyan said the starting point was relation-element’s divergent tree and it could be enhanced and enriched.
The ninth speaker was Ms. Zhu Xi (朱纓) and her presentation was “Relationship between Matter-element Correlation Net and Conductive Transformation” (物元相關網與傳導變換的關係)”.
She said the Correlation Net was foundation of Conductive Transformation.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked to summarize the topic using one sentence. It is Extension Relationship (拓展關係)
Prof. Yang Chunyan said Correlation Net was dynamic and Conductive Transformation was based on it.
Mr. Liu Hongzhong (劉宏中) was the tenth speaker and his topic entitled “Extension Model Establishing Method (可拓模型的建立方法)”.
The overall basic-element and its application were discussed. He used package as problem to explained the establishment of extension model.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked what method could ensure to raise out characteristics of extension model.
Prof. Yang Chunyan explained maximum mass was not characteristic but mass range was.
Prof. Cai Wen gave a suggestion steps to present the topic below:
i) What is the Extension Model?
ii) Why need to establish it?
iii) How to establish it?
iv) What is the use?
v) Pay attention to what is the problem.
The 11th speaker was Mr. Li Xiaoping (李小平) and his topic was “The Second Creative Method and its Application (第二創造法及其應用)”. He used USB to explain the second creative method.
Prof. Li Xingsen said the second creative method started from basic-element.
Prof. Yang Chunyan asked what relationship between Extension Innovation Four Step method and the Second Creative Method. Actually, they were the same.
Prof. Cai Wen added the different between “Need” and “Demand”. Need (需要) is when no such product in the market and Demand (需求) is from the existing product.
The 12th speaker was Ms. Zhou Yan (周彥) and her topic was “Product Function’s Implication Analysis (產品功能的蘊含分析)”.
She raised several examples and one of examples was projector that projected the image but also generated heat.
Prof. Yang Chunyan commented that the beginning part was too theoretical and difficult to explain to public. It should be used function of product to explain implication.
The 13th speaker was Ms. Du Qingping (杜青平) and her presentation named “Dynamic Matter-element and its Basic Transformation (動態物元及其基本變換)”.
She used cicada sound (蟬叫聲) as example to show the transformation under dynamic matter-element.
Prof. Yang Chunyan said cicada is matter-element but cicada sound is affair-element. She used another example to explain dynamic matter-element such as People cannot step twice into the same river (人不能兩次踏進同一條河流。). River could use dynamic matter-element to describe.
Ms. Dong Cuiling (董翠玲) was the last speaker and her presentation entitled “Superiority Evaluation Method and its Application (優度評價法及其應用)”.
She briefed the purpose and criteria setting of superiority evaluation method.
Prof. Li Xingsen asked in what situation no need to use superiority evaluation method.
Prof. Yang Chunyan clarity the terms of PRODUCT and AND operation (積算法和與算法) should be “Maximum” and “Minimum” operation (取最大和取最小).
After the presentation and lunch break, we were waiting the examination result. The Extension Innovation Method level 3 training course team in 2017 took a group photo with Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) for memory.
Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) gave a keynote to us and the topic entitled “Extension Achievement and Recently Work”.
Firstly, Prof. Cai Wen briefed the recognition of Extenics in academic field and its positioning. Then he briefed the achievements.
Finally, Prod. Cai Wen suggested to cooperate with TRIZ expert because TRIZ fundamental theory is Extenics based on its research object – contradiction.
Lastly, Prof. Li Xingsen (李興森) announced the Extension Innovation Method Level 3 list and took a photo with Prof. Cai Wen individually.
I received Level 3 certificate from Prof. Cai Wen. I studied Extenics since 2016 and achieve level 1, level 2 and level 3 in 2016, 2017 and 2019, respectively.
At the end, we took a group photo for memory.
