Methodology  First building block of TRIZ.After TRIZ 40 different methods or possibilities for the methodology are defined, which can help systematically thereby (however not to have) from a dead end during a problem solution to come out or a "breakthrough" to prepare a new idea:
Segmenting
Technical problem:
Arrange a system into modules, increase the degree of the partitioning, or lay the object out detachable.
Verallgemeinerung:
Extraction
Technical problem:
Extract a "disturbing" constituent and regard it separately.
Verallgemeinerung:
Local optimization
Technical problem:
Over completely of a homogeneous structure of an object to heterogeneous structure/composition. Different sections of the object take over different functions, optimize each constituent for itself.
Verallgemeinerung:
Asymetrie
Technical problem:
Replace a symmetrical structure by an asymmetrical or increase the degree of the Asymetrie, if it is already asymmetrical.
Verallgemeinerung:
Combination
Technical problem:
Spatial joining and temporal clocks of individual functions.
Verallgemeinerung:
Universality
Technical problem:
A system fulfills different functions.
Verallgemeinerung:
Nesting
Technical problem:
The principle of the Russian dolls: embed an object into another, these if necessary in a third etc....
Verallgemeinerung:
Counterweights
Technical problem:
Kompensatiosmechanismen.
Verallgemeinerung:
Preventing interaction
Technical problem:
Prevent by counter measures an occurring of unwanted effects.
Verallgemeinerung:
Antizipierte effect
Technical problem:
Create conditions, on which the intended effect or the effect intended occurs.
Verallgemeinerung:
Precautionary security
Technical problem:
Compensate weak points by counter measures.
Verallgemeinerung:
Aequipotentialitaet
Technical problem:
Arrange the surrounding field in such a way that the expenditure for the interaction with the object is minimized.
Verallgemeinerung:
Inversion (function reversal)
Technical problem:
Analyze the effect determined by the problem specification and examine the contrary effect.
Verallgemeinerung:
See also: Reversal method.
Curvature (Nichlinearitaet)
Technical problem:
Where linear items leave themselves by nonlinear erstetzen (e.g. even surfaces by curved, translation movements by rotation); Use from centrifugal energy.
Verallgemeinerung:
Dynamisierung
Technical problem:
Arrange the object or its environment in such a way that it adjusts automatically in all operating conditions to optimal behavior; divide the object into items, which are to each other mobile and can optimally arrange itself; make a static object mobile, adjustable or exchangeable.
Verallgemeinerung:
Part or over fulfilment
Technical problem:
If the desired effect can be attained by hundred percent with difficulty, solve the problem by part or over fulfilment with following correction.
Verallgemeinerung:
Dimension increase
Technical problem:
Go around difficulties of linear arrangements by avoiding in the level, or transition from surface to the Reumgestalt, resolving the simultaneousness by introduction of the temporal dimension; Use of multisandwiches instead of single positions; slope the object or brings it in side position.
Verallgemeinerung:
Vibration
Technical problem:
Shift the object in oscillations, the variriere frequency, the nzutze resonant frequency out.
Verallgemeinerung:
Periodicity
Technical problem:
Replace similar to by digital processes; use suggestions for pulse in place or in connection with continuous effect on the system; use a tracing; use the parameters of periodic processes
Verallgemeinerung:
Continuity
Technical problem:
Eliminate downtimes and empty.
Verallgemeinerung:
Rate
Technical problem:
Execute process with so high rate that it is final, before side effects can unfold.
Verallgemeinerung:
From the NOT to the virtue
Technical problem:
Examine negative or breakdown effects on ranges of application.
Verallgemeinerung:
Feedback
Technical problem:
Use feedbacks for the optimization of the behavior; if they are available, modify them or turn around it.
Verallgemeinerung:
Mediation
Technical problem:
Use a mediating Obkejt, in order to transfer or promote the effect; connect the system vorruebergehen with one anderemm one object which can be changed easily.
Verallgemeinerung:
Self maintenance
Technical problem:
Let the object wait themselves and own auxiliary and repair functions to execute; use material ones and energy "Abfaelle".
Verallgemeinerung:
Copy, visualization
Technical problem:
Use of simple and inexpensive copies in place of a complex, expensive, fragilen or object which can be handled pedantically. Replace an object by an optical copy or an image. Replace visible copies by infrared ones or ultraviolets.
Verallgemeinerung:
Oneway components
Technical problem:
Replace expensive objects by cheap oneway products.
Verallgemeinerung:
Substitution of mechanics
Technical problem:
Replacement by optical, acoustic, elektronagnetische and other systems.
Verallgemeinerung:
Pneumatics and hydraulics
Technical problem:
Replace rigid of constituents of an object by a gas or a liquid.
Verallgemeinerung:
Flexible diaphragms or thin films
Technical problem:
Replace tradizionelle constructions by thinfilm technology.
Verallgemeinerung:
Poräoese materials
Technical problem:
Replace components by porous constituents or add it. If an object is already porous, use the pores with a suitable substance.
Verallgemeinerung:
Color changes
Technical problem:
Change of the color design of an object or its environment; Utilization of transparency. Use,  back or continuing to glow items for the support of the function.
Verallgemeinerung:
Homogeneity
Technical problem:
Select sections to main componentcooperate those with one if possible from the same or a similar material.
Verallgemeinerung:
Rejecting and recovering
Technical problem:
After a section fulfilled its function and is useless, remove or modify it (to reject, resolve, evaporate). Replace directly used up or worn sections.
Verallgemeinerung:
Changes in status
Technical problem:
Change physical or chemical parameters (temperature, density distribution, viscosity).
Verallgemeinerung:
Phasenuebergaegnge
Technical problem:
Use effects, which are based on phase transitions of a material.
Verallgemeinerung:
Thermal expansion
Technical problem:
Use a material that when heating up expands or pulls together; or different materials with different coefficients of expansion.
Verallgemeinerung:
Strong Oxidantien
Technical problem:
Treat the object with compressed or oxygenenriched air, pure oxygen or ozone.
Verallgemeinerung:
Inert environment
