Systematic innovation is the process of methodically analyzing and solving problems with a primary focus on identifying the correct problem to be solved and then generating innovative solution concepts free from mental inertia.
Most people assume that innovation comes from a few exceptional people and on rare occasions. Therefore it is generally believed that innovation is a gift and cannot be taught. The systematic innovation discipline utilized by Innomation Corp not only structures the innovative process to your needs, it also renders it methodical and analytical. Innovation can indeed be taught and students of the discipline often find themselves as the new technical inventors and business developers for their organizations and industries.
What is Systematic Innovation for Technology?
Systematic Innovation for Technology is the practice of forecasting and making intelligent evolutionary changes to your engineering systems and processes. Innomation Corp bases its Systematic Innovation for Technology services on the discipline of TRIZ.
TRIZ is a Russian acronym that stands for Teoriya Resheniya Izobreatatelskikh Zadatch. The English translation is “The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving.” The TRIZ methodology was conceptualized and developed by Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues, beginning in 1946 in the former USSR. His process involved reviewing hundreds of thousands of patents to understand how engineering systems evolved over time. Particular attention was paid to understanding how innovation was harnessed to solve difficult engineering problems in novel ways. Fundamentally, the objective of TRIZ is to discover how inventors invent. The development of TRIZ as an international science of creativity continues and has so far spanned over 60 years and encompassed the analysis of some three million patents. Elemental to the process is the understanding of how engineering system contradictions can be addressed without the use of compromise.
What is Systematic Innovation for Computing?
Attempts have been made to apply TRIZ directly to software development and improvement. However, software/firmware is but one component of a greater computing/control system. Just as with technical systems analysis, the software component can only be analyzed within the context of its associated hardware and engineering systems (those components that provide input to the computing/control systems and those components that receive output from the computing/control system). Systematic Innovation for Computing is Innomation Corp’s proprietary approach to performing systems engineering analysis to a computing/control system and then applying innovation solution methods to the appropriate “area of conflict.”
Like TRIZ, Systematic Innovation for Computing focuses the problem solver on the root problem to be solved and breaks the mental inertia around how that classification of problem has been traditionally solved. Further, Systematic Innovation for Computing identifies and helps to negate conflicts residing within your computing systems. The result is a clear understanding of what issues need analysis focus and will best address your computing system’s challenges in a holistic way. True computing/software innovation comes form understanding how the computing/software systems interfaces with the real world, not by simply trying to create better syntax.
What is Systematic Innovation for Business?
Like Systematic Innovation for Technology, Systematic Innovation for Business is the practice of forecasting and making intelligent evolutionary changes to your business and its processes. Innomation Corp bases its Systematic Innovation (SI) for Business services on tool sets that were developed specifically for business innovation and through modifications of some of the TRIZ discipline tools.
Like TRIZ, Systematic Innovation for Business focuses the problem solver on the root problem to be solved and breaks the mental inertia around how that classification of problem has been traditionally solved. Further, Systematic Innovation for Business identifies and helps to negate conflicts facing your organization. The result is a clear understanding of what issues need analysis focus and will best address the organization’s challenges in a holistic way. The Systematic Innovation for Business produces a surplus of innovative and wide ranging solutions addressing the identified needs.
