About this book


This is the first open practical guide for Modern TRIZ technology of effective inventive thinking. Modern TRIZ makes possible creating the innovations and inventions with systematic methods supported with effective EASyTRIZ technology and software.

Vang Venming, company owner, inventor, participant of a 2-day workshop for 1,000 students at the North-Eastern Forestry University, Harbin, China:

Right here, at this Modern TRIZ workshop, I came up with a new idea which improves my own patent. This is simply fabulous! I would never have believed before that it is possible!

Seung-Hyen Yoo, professor of Mechanical Engineering, AJOU University, Suwon, Republic of Korea:

We have known TRIZ for more than 10 years, and have successfully used it in engineering consulting and student training. And we saw a new TRIZ at lectures and workshops delivered by Professor Orloff in the Republic of Korea before experts working for SAMSUNG

and other companies, and before faculty and students of several universities.

Heinrich Kochs, VW expert, Hannover, Germany:

Modern TRIZ makes it possible to rapidly raise young experts to the level of experienced gurus, while the gurus, in their turn, become "young" and proactive. The most important advantage of Modern TRIZ is that it accumulates, selects and transfers experience based on standardized reinventing.

Gao Hong, professor, dean of Physics Department, Harbin Pedagogical University, China, participant of a 2-day workshop attended by 1,000 students:

Im simply amazed by how simple and efficient Modern TRIZ models are. And now I am convinced that Modern TRIZ must be taught at our Pedagogical University and at other universities.
