Webinar 8: The Art of Functional Modelling with PRIZ Platform

System Functional Model, also known as Function Modeling, is a popular problem-solving & innovation tool that helps us to model a problem using functional language and identify problematic and functional components. Functional modeling helps us to think within the scope of components and their functions instead of the system as a whole. PRIZ Webinar #8 is dedicated to Functional Modelling and it took place on September 15, 2022 at 6 pm IDT, 4 pm GMT, 11 am EST, 8 am PST During the webinar, we learned: The power of the Functional Modelling Main components of the Functional Model: Product, System…

Solved with PRIZ Innovation Platform (Examples)

What PRIZ Platform could give: Fast closing of excursions (unexpected process deviations that request immediate solution) Fast completion of projects as yield improvement and cost reduction (well-known cronical problems that request solutions) Why is it good? Easy to use – an engineer can operate as a professional problem solver without long term training Easy to manage and track – the system integrates project management with tasks and problem solving tools for: Root Cause Analysis, Modeling, Brainstorming, Decision making, Ideas recording, etc. (Totally 10 tools are available) Easy to report out – the system adequately documents all the data, comments, solutions,…

How to create a production process and solve problems using PRIZ Innovation Platform

40 Principles is one of the strongest problem-solving instruments that could and should be widely used for industry. This article describes the case study of how to create an optimal production process using problem-solving techniques. Let’s solve a chemical problem. You do not have to be a chemist, not at all. You have to be a problem solver. For an endless number of chemists, there is a minimal number of problem solvers. How do we identify a problem solver? It is very easy. A problem solver always uses problem-solving tools. So, let’s begin. The Request Create a structure as per…

Functional Modeling with PRIZ Innovation Platform

Functional modeling is probably the most powerful problem-solving tool available for us as engineers. The tool is applicable to both sudden, unpredictable deviations (AKA excursions) and for solving chronic problems. The power of Functional Modeling Functional modeling benefits us in a number of things. Here, however, we want to highlight just some of them. Learn and understand how a system operates Define and rank functionality of all system components Define and rank the problematic level of the components   Solve problems and improve the functionality of the system: Enhance the functionality of the system by modifying the components having high…
