  Practice Guide to Complete the World WTSP Catalogs and to Report It at ETRIA TFC2019 (Toru Nakagawa) (Jun. 10; Jun. 14, 2019)

This article is our Practice Guide for completing our World WTSP Catalogs before TFC2019 (to be held on Oct. 9-11, 2019 at Marrakech, Morocco).  It is based on the last two sections of our recently-submitted TFC2019 paper (written in black fonts), which reflects our recent discussions .  To make this an effective Practice Guide, I have added various notes, referring to existing information (in green fonts) and mentioning new and detailed information (in blue fonts).

This article has 2 important findings.  (a) I have obtained a clear and practical technical vision of World WTSP Catalogs in the form of Interactive Edition; composed of the Index file (.pdf) and many List of Sites files (.pdf), where both types of files can be built and updated easily. 
(b) Forming WTSP Teams with Country Editors in every country is most crucial for the success of WTSP.
We eagerly wish to work Together ! Connected !! with you for further proliferaion of TRIZ and related methodologies.

 Objectives of WTSP and Practical Approaches for Us: In Reply to Michael Orloff (Toru Nakagawa) (Jun. 2, 2019)

Probably, my recent articles on Internet surveys and Database System proposal give impression to M. Orloff and many TRIZ colleagues that the WTSP project is now expanding too big to follow. This misunderstanding might have come from the difference between my work for thinking about the final publication of WTSP Catalogs at the global level and the work expected for WTSP members to visit and describe individual sites at the country level. 
Thus using the 8 slides we presented at ETRIA TFC2018, I show that our aims and plans etc. are the same and even the difficulties we are facing now are essentially the same as before.  The crucial issues for us exist at the coutry level, to form a WTSP Team, to get Country Editor for coordinating the Team, and to build the WTSP Catalog in the county. Thus in this article I discuss about the practical ways of bottom-up approach for building Country WTSP Catalogs step by step.  I also show the practical process at the global level to build the World WTSP Catalogs manually without assuming the WTSP Database System now at the proposal stage.

  Proposal of the WTSP Database System for the World TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP) (Toru Nakagawa) (May 24,2019)

This is a proposal to build "WTSP Database System". It accepts the description of individual Web sites in a standard format, containing the answers in the aspects of Location, Language, Role, Application phase, Application fields, Methods, and Evaluation. The key to our system is these Multiple sets of Indexing Schemes. The System can generate WTSP Indexes and WTSP Catalogs in various ways of hierarchical classification and arrangements from these aspects, as specified by the control input. It also serves as an on-line Query System using the same mechanism of hierarchical classification.  The proposal is written conceptually yet thoroughly for implementation.  See the figure of the overall structure of the System .  Once having the WTSP Database System installed, we will be able to concentrate our efforts to survey and describe good Web sites in TRIZ and relevant methodologies.

  Multiple Sets of Indexing Schemes for the WTSP DB System (Toru Nakagawa) (May 24,2019)

This page posts the definitions of Multiple Sets of Indexing Schemes for the newly proposed WTSP Database System .  Indexing Scheme means a system of categories (or answers to users’ questions) in one aspect of users’ interest.  Defining the aspects and defining the system of categories in each aspect appropriately are very important as the basis of the WTSP DB System.  All the details of these Indexing Schemes should be discussed further and revised as soon as possible.  Please send me questions, comments, and revision proposals.

  Preliminary Internet Searches (3) of TRIZ-related Sites in wider scopes in the world (Toru Nakagawa) (May 18,2019)

I started the '3rd round' of surveys of TRIZ-related sites in wider scopes by using keywords different from TRIZ.  At moment, I am going to focus the sites written in English and located in the whole world.  The choice of the keywords is important and delicate.  We will need several (or many) sets of keywords for the survey, on some trial basis.  Since we are surveying in a wider scope, we have to check many more sites and select useful sites from them.  This requires us hard work in somewhat not so familiar areas. 

  Preliminary Internet Search (3A) of TRIZ-related Sites in a wider scope with the keywords Creat* Think* Method*  (Toru Nakagawa)  (May 18, 2019)

I used the Keywords: Creat*  Think*  Method*  (with the wild card *).  The Yahoo.Japan search engine interpreted the keywords much widely such as: (Create, Creative, Make, Build, etc.) AND (Think, Thinking, Thoughts, feel, believe, etc.) AND (Method, Tool, Technique, Way, etc.).  Thus the outputs are much diluted.  Evaluating the sites quickly, I obtained the results: ◎ 1 site, ○ 4 sites, □ 15 sites, △ 3 sites, and - 84 sites.  The sites are shown in the HTML page and in the .docx file .

  (3A2) of TRIZ-related Sites in a wider scope with the keywords Creative Think Method  (Toru Nakagawa)  (May 18, 2019)

The keywords: Creative Think Method.  This works well.  Among the 194 sites, I evaluated as: ◎ Most important 1 site, ○ Important 15 sites, □ World Catalog 65 sites, △ Country Catalog 31 sites, L (Listed already elsewhere) 15 sites, and - Irrelevant 56 sites.  The sites are shown in the HTML page and in the .docx file . See also the sample description of the and sites in the HTML page.

  Preliminary Internet Searches (2) of TRIZ-related Sites in the world (Toru Nakagawa) (Mar. 18; Mar. 31; Apr. 4, 2019)

Surveys of TRIZ-related sites are carried out in a top-down approach by use of Internet Search engines.  This series is named '2nd Round Preliminary Internet Search'.  The searches are carried out for the TRIZ-related sites in the whole world written (2A) in English, (2B) in Russian, (2C) in German, (2D) in French, (2E) in Spanish/Portuguese, and also (2F) the sites in USA written in English. 

Processes of the internet search and further data handling for understanding and evaluating the sites are devised and described in detail.  Quick visit of the sites and applying the Site search (i.e., searching TRIZ-related pages inside the site) are used to understand and evaluate the sites.  Evaluation of sites in 5 levels is introduced as: ◎ Most important, ○ Important, and □ Worthy in the World WTSP Catalog; △ Worthy  in Country WTSP Catalogs; and - Irrelevant/neglected in the WTSP Catalogs. Classifying the site types with the roles of the site (owners) are also introduced.

For confirming the survey strategy, the effectiveness of the 'Base Document' (i.e., the annotated list of 'Selected 120 TRIZ Links in the world', which was compiled by Nakagawa in May 2008) has been examined.  The present situations of the TRIZ-related sites in Europe listed in 2008 have been examined, to find that nearly half of them are gone/inactive while the other half are active and hence their descriptions 10 years ago are now obsolete. Thus it is clear that we should carry out our surveys newly without trying to revise the old documents. 

Results of the surveys (2A) through (2F) are shown in detail in the HTML pages.  The sites written in non-English languages are not evaluated yet because of language difficulty for me.  Description of introductions of sites is left to be done by the collaboration of many TRIZ colleagues.   

Note (TN, Apr. 4, 2019):  WTSP pages (A2) Organization (List of Members), (A4) Guidelines, (A6) Outputs have been updated.

  Preliminary Internet Searches of TRIZ-related Sites (2A) written in English in the world  (Toru Nakagawa)  (Mar. 18; Mar. 31, 2019)

Interner search with Yahoo.Japan outputs 106 sites.  Visiting sites quickly and applying the Site search, the sites are evaluated as: ◎ 6, ○ 13, □ 29, △ 33, - 25.  In the HTML page, top 81 sites are listed with their Evaluation symbol, site name, site URL, and number of pages hit by Site search.   Some more details are shown in the .docx file .

  (2B) written in Russian in the world   (Toru Nakagawa, Michael Orloff)  (Mar. 18; Mar. 31, 2019)

Internet search outputs 106 sites.  They are (listed in the HTML page) with page title and site name, site URL, and URL for site search; but no evaluation yet.  Some more details in .docx
Michael Orloff used various Internet searches together with his background knowledge, and listed the URLs of 26 Selected sites operated by TRIZ profesionals, and 49 sites/pages of TRIZ users. He says: This list is not the best and last, but maybe not bad!. Posted both in HTML and in .docx .

  (2C) written in German in the world   (Toru Nakagawa)  (Mar. 31, 2019)

Internet search outputs 107 sites.  They are (listed in the HTML page) with page title and site name, site URL, and URL for site search; but no evaluation yet.  Irrelevant 7 sites are omitted.  See .docx

  (2D) written in French in the world   (Toru Nakagawa)   (Mar. 31, 2019)

Internet search outputs 90 sites.  They are (listed in the HTML page) with page title and site name, site URL, and URL for site search; but no evaluation yet.  Irrelevant 8 sites are omitted.  See .docx

  (2E) written in Spanish/Portuguese in the world   (Toru Nakagawa)   (Mar. 31, 2019)

Internet search outputs 123 sites, but 73 of them are irrelevant because of a female singer's name Triz..  50 sites are (listed in the HTML page) with page title and site name, site URL, and URL for site search; but no evaluation yet.  See .docx

  (2F) written in English in USA  (Toru Nakagawa)   (Mar. 31, 2019)

Interner search outputs 90 sites.  Visiting sites quickly and applying the Site search, the sites are evaluated as: ◎ 6, ○ 11, □ 27, △24, -22.  In the HTML page, top 68 sites are listed with their Evaluation symbol, site name, site URL, and number of pages hit by Site search.   Some more details are shown in the .docx file .

 Examining the Changes in TRIZ-related Sites since 2008 (in Europe as Samples)  (Toru Nakagawa)   (Mar. 31, 2019)

Effectiveness of the annotated list of 'Selected 120 TRIZ Links in the world' (compiled by Nakagawa in May 2008) has been examined.   And we get the conclusion that the list described 10 years ago is quite obsolete and we must carry out our surveys newly without trying to revise the old documents.  See .docx
