The passenger car is one of the most popular types of transportation for people to travel from one place to another. The improvement of vehicle safety has become one of the most meaningful targets in the vehicle industry. Indeed, a braking system plays an important role to enhance the active vehicle safety. This research is an actual case study of an automotive manufacturer, where the problem was provided by and decided from the industry which focuses on improving the braking system of the passenger car by using the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) methodology. This paper outlines the steps involved in problem identification by using this methodology.
