Trial and error was tedious and time-wasting. Brainstorming didnâ€™t even work. (One engineer working alone gets better results than a brainstorming group, researchers have found.) Youâ€™ve tried Six Sigma and LEAN, but this problem has you stumped. Then someone whispers that a competitor has worked out the solution using ... TRIZ.
Even the name is odd â€” TRIZ (pronounced â€œtreesâ€), a Russian acronym that translates as "the theory of inventorsâ€™ problem solving.â€ But Fortune 500 companies such as Procter & Gamble, Ford Motor, Boeing, and many others, swear by TRIZ for solving complex technical and organizational problems. And now, devicemakers are discovering TRIZ to solve their knottiest challenges ... the ones that make engineers grit their teeth and mutter, â€œThis is impossible!â€
Why is TRIZ, a problem-solving method invented 70 years ago by an obscure engineer in the former Soviet Union, taking medical device manufacturing by storm? And how can it help turn your products into market leaders?
The answers are a click away.
Log on Monday, June 22, to participate in the first TRIZ online seminar exclusively for medical device manufacturers ...
