GB System of Inventive Principles


Problem solving in classical TRIZ, as well as in the various post-classical TRIZ derivatives, is focused on finding one “successful” idea. Sometimes, that idea is accompanied by a few ideas of a “lower level” – i.e. solutions of subsequent, secondary problems.
The GB TRIZ methodology proposes a different approach to problem solving. This approach provides the following advantages:

  • A thorough analysis of the problem allows localizing it as a specific goal focused on one modifiable function.
  • This helps define a compact list of resources that need to be changed to achieve the desired results.
  • GB System of Inventive Principles (IPs) helps create a practically exhaustive list of possible ideas.
  • Ideas are combined into conceptual solutions, which are evaluated to create a “locally ideal” implementable plan.

The methodology is successful because the GB System of IPs is standardized for simple, uniform application. This standardization allows for many benefits, including:

  • A faster, simpler training process to use the System of IPs.
  • Easy implementation in facilitation of projects.
  • Maximum efficiency at discovering and applying the knowledge necessary for the project.
  • A comprehensive and virtually exhaustive list of possible solutions.
  • Implementable concepts.
