Process Functional Modeling in Microchip Manufacturing: A Case Study on Innovative Problem Solving

This case study explores the usage of Process Functional Modeling (PFM) as a problem-solving tool in microchip manufacturing. PFM is an innovative way of thinking that involves breaking down a process into its components on multiple levels and generating innovative solutions. The tool enables us to move from general to specific, from process to operations, operations to components, and components to functions. In this article, we provide a real-life example of how a team applied PFM to the microchip manufacturing process. We want to demonstrate its effectiveness in creating a model of failure in the context of the whole process….

Process Functional Modeling with the PRIZ Innovation Hub

We always talk about solving problems and improving processes of an operation, a part of a bigger process. This is great! In fact, it is always encouraged to break the bigger, more complex process into smaller pieces so we can simplify the problem we are working on. However, this approach may create another issue. The engineers working on a problem, especially in large complex processes, might end up diving into the wrong operation of the process. In this article, we introduce the newly released tool in the PRIZ Innovation Platform that is built to help engineers look at the whole…

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…
