About this event

Wales North Local Network and Glyndwr University are presenting a lecture about TRIZ problem solving.
 
Ever wondered how easy it should be to invent things if you could apply big data analysis to previous inventions to see how they were created?  TRIZ has already done that, with the worldwide community having analysed over 14 million patents, drawn out the key inventive principles and mapped the circumstances where these principles work best.
 
The good news is that this information is available to everyone, and the techniques of application are relatively easy to apply.  So potentially we can all become inventors.  Can we all become innovators and turn that invention into our first £million? Or apply the inventions to social and community benefit?
Ian Care is an Engineer and member of IET and IMC with almost 40 years’ experience across several industries.  He currently works as one of the Engineers within the internal audit department of a large blue chip company in Derby.  Ian is passionate about using structured thinking tools to improve and invent both for physical devices and in the social context.  He has filed over 80 patent families (of which 60 have already granted) and has several entries in the Global Ideas Bank - some of which have been helped along by TRIZ.  There are opportunities to apply structured thinking differently, not just because of new technologies, but also in how we integrate service with the needs of others.

Reasons to attend

Ever wondered how easy it should be to invent things if you could apply big data analysis to previous inventions to see how they were created?  TRIZ has already done that, with the worldwide community having analysed over 14 million patents, drawn out the key inventive principles and mapped the circumstances where these principles work best.

TRIZ is "a problem-solving, analysis and forecasting tool derived from the study of patterns of invention in the global patent literature"
