TRIZ is a complete set of theory and method of invention problem solution proposed by the former Soviet inventor Genrich S. Altshuller. It contains 40 inventive principles, the ultimate ideal solution (IFR), Contradictory matrix, evolutionary rule, object-field analysis, function analysis, knowledge base/effect storehouse, resource, separation principle, and other sets of tools. After more than half a century of development, the TRIZ theory has become a mature set of nine classical theoretical systems to solve practical problems in the development of new products.
