Toru Nakagawa ==>  WTSP Members and TRIZ Colleagues    Nov. 4, 2019

I have updated the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".

[1] Memorial of Dr. Ed Sickafus (1931 - 2018) (Toru Nakagawa, Late Dr. Ed Sickafus, Kurt Edward Sickafus)

Dr. Edward Nathan Sickafus (the developer of USIT) passed away nearly a year ago, on November 15, 2018.

I noticed the sad news on July 5, 2019 as a result of Internet search, after wondering why no email response from him for several months. I sent an air mail to his deceased wife, Mrs. Mary Sue Sickafus, and got an email response from his elder son, Dr. Kurt Edward Sickafus on Aug. 3, 2019. I am sorry to be late in announcing this sad news to TRIZ/USIT community, because I was waiting for some more information from the family.

The present page posts: Heritage News (Nov. 2018); Communications between Nakagawa and the deceased family; Our last email communications with Dr. Ed. Sickafus (Sept. 2018); Plan of the Dr. Ed Sickafus Memorial Archives.

Please contribute your tributes to Dr. Ed Sickafus to the present page.

This Web site "TRIZ Home in Japan" celebrates its 21st Anniversary today, Nov. 1.  
I am very grateful to you all, including authors, translators, and readers in Japan and around the world, for your continuing support. (snips)

[4] Significance of the WTSP Project and its WTSP Catalogs: Communications with Bill Fowlkes (USA)

Dr. Bill Fowlkes is VP of IP.com (USA) and was an active user of TRIZ software (Tech Optimizer and IWB) many years ago. While looking for new information about TRIZ software, he met my Web site (probably the page of 'World 120 TRIZ Links' (2008)). So he sent me a message via LinkedIn.

I mentioned him about our WTSP project and the newly-completed WTSP Catalogs (2019). He found it a terrific reference.

On my request, he wrote the introduction of his site (coded as TN3E-23 in WTSP Catalog) in our standard Site Description Form. It is a nice example written by a professional in Intellectual Properties (i.e., an area AROUND TRIZ).

So, I asked him to write a message of his impression of WTSP. For doing so, he wanted to understand the structure of the WTSP project and the WTSP Catalogs. I sent an explanation.

Then he sent us his message soon. It expresses the heart of the WTSP project and WTSP Catalogs. I am very grateful to Dr. Bill Fowlkes and very happy to cite his message in the attached GIF file. All the communications between Dr. Bill Fowlkes and myself are posted in the English page.

Best wishes, Toru

 


  

  Invitation from Research Outreach for possible public outreach publication

  Edward Blake (ResearchOutreach, UK) ==> Toru Nakagawa   Nov. 21, 2019    Invitation from ResearchOutreach

Dear Dr. Nakagawa, Please excuse the direct nature of this contact, however I would like to speak with you regarding your work on the World TRIZ Sites Project WTSP 2 To Build Catalogs of TRIZ-Related Web Sites in the World study.

Research Outreach work in collaboration with research teams assisting with their Public Outreach activity, through means of a professionally produced series of publications and articles aimed at a broader audience.
I understand Public Outreach is a very important issue within the research community – where it is often difficult to obtain large numbers of views and interactions.

We are currently working on our March 2020 edition. This publication will feature a wide variety of science disciplines, including approximately 28 research articles. We would like you to be one of those featured.
My suggestion is that we might create a new article, possibly covering some basic details of the published paper I have seen online, or indeed, covering new ground or the wider scope of your work. This would be an entirely new article written and developed by Research Outreach, in close collaboration with you.
Research Outreach distributes all content, publications and your individual article, across major Social Media platforms, as well as our own website. Your work will be seen by a large and quantifiable global audience.
We work with all academics on a non-profit making level, all content we produce is free to share and can be downloaded by any reader. Our website is entirely transparent and answers any questions you may have.

I have briefly looked over the details of your work and believe Research Outreach to be an effective platform to communicate your outreach requirements.
We publish under the Creative Commons Licence and you will own the copyright to your published material, and we can send you a separate PDF download, to be used on your web-page, at events, conferences, or as outreach material for students etc.
Please have a look at our website for examples of the publications we produce and further detail on our objectives and services: www.researchoutreach.org
I can assure you the entire process requires very little work on your part, less than 1 hour, over a 10-week process.

Some of the services we provide are paid for, this means there is a cost to you if you decide to take part. I would be delighted to explain this and our editorial process. I understand your time is limited.
Rather than writing any further detail, could we please find 5 minutes to discuss?
During our call, I can answer any questions you may have and explain in detail the requirements and cost for taking part and of course the benefits of doing so.

Thank you in advance, Kind regards,
Edward Blake, Project Manager, Research Outreach

Toru Nakagawa ==> Edward Blake   Nov. 21, 2019

Dear Mr. Edward Blake, Thank you very much for your message.
I have just visited your Website and read the FAQ and took a glance of the style of articles in Research Outreach.

I feel very much honored and happy to learn that you have found my works on World TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP) interesting and worthy of publishing in your editions.

May I ask you some more concrete information on the typical process of your preparing an article and the cost I need to pay? I prefer email communications to phone conversation, partly because I am not so fluent in speaking English.

As you might have seen already, every detail of our WTSP project, e.g. intentions, activities, difficulties, product structures, current outputs, etc., is publicly posted in my Website: "TRIZ Home Page in Japan":  

I feel that we have just built the framework of the WTSP Catalogs and the preliminary version of the World WTSP Catalogs, but the contents of the Catalogs need to be improved much. We spent 2 years already and need at least 1 more year, possibly longer, to build good/useful WTSP Catalogs.
We have to encourage leaders and colleagues in our own field, in every country over the world, to work in cooperation to build the Catalogs.
In this sense, we are not yet at the stage of showing our results (i.e., contents of Catalogs) to researchers in wider areas all over the world.

Thanking you for your invitation and looking forward to hearing from you again,
Best wishes, Toru

  Edward Blake ==> Toru Nakagawa   Nov. 21, 2019   

Thank you for your response, please find the additional details you requested below.

Our proposal in creation of your feature is very straight forward, and we will produce the vast bulk of the work. We require very little of your time and you will receive the following:
   *  4-page feature article - written by our Editorial team in collaboration with you.
   *  keynote interview section - All questions created by our editors
   *  Design and Illustration - Produced by our in-house design team
   *  Unlimited and unrestricted use over final article, including all graphics/illustrations
   *  Hard copy of the final publication . Creation of a bespoke webpage within https://researchoutreach.org/category/articles
   * ... (snips)

To begin the editorial process, which should not take more than 1-hour of your time, we ask for the following:
    * Submission of current background information, papers, weblinks and any other material relevant to the topic  ... (snips)

Research Outreach invests an average of 24 to 28 hours production time on each article. Our role is to ensure we take as little of your time as possible, whilst ensuring you are kept up to speed and remain in control of the direction and final structure of the feature.  ...
Your article will also be assigned a DOI to help you track its success. ...
We reach over 110,000 readers worldwide with both digital and physical copies of each edition. This number is growing ...
We publish under the Creative Commons license so everything we offer regarding content is entirely barrier free and there are no pay walls for the recipients. ...

The total cost of involvement for the Four -page Research Outreach article, and all the above additional benefit, is fixed at £1780.  ...

The next stage, will be to confirm your involvement, ...

I hope that this explains in detail exactly how we would like to work with you and the requirement from you.
I look forward to following up with you later next week.
Kind regards, Edward Blake

Toru Nakagawa ==> Edward Blake   Nov. 22, 2019    

Dear Mr. Edward Blake, Thank you for your information about your process and cost of your service.

Even though I appreciate your interests and invitation, I have decided to decline to ask you for your publication and promotion service.

It is simply because we cannot pay the cost. We are working for the WTSP project entirely on the volunteer basis without obtaining any fund or official support from public or commercial organizations.
And, as I wrote before, we are not yet at the stage of showing our results (i.e., contents of Catalogs) to researchers in wider areas all over the world.

Thank you again for your appreciation of our WTSP project.
Best wishes, Toru

Introduction to TRIZ: TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) (Toru Nakagawa, published in "Encyclopedia of Design Science") ;
Introduction to Six-Box Scheme: Six Box Scheme (Toru Nakagawa, published in "Encyclopedia of Design Science")

 

Toru Nakagawa ==>  TRIZ colleagues and HP Readers in Japan   Nov. 23, 2019   HP Update Announcement

"TRIZ Home Page in Japan" has been updated today in Japanese pages. 

"Encyclopedia of Design Science"edited by Japanese Society for the Science of Design has been published a month ago by Maruzen Publishing.  As one of 103 authors from various fields related to designing and design engineering, Nakagawa authored the following two sections:
(1) TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving), pp. 550-555.
(2) Six-Box Scheme, pp. 274-277
These are concise introductory articles concerning to the main topics having been discussed in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan". 
The Encyclopedia, having 703 pages in A5 size, is a very valuable, elaborate reference, covering a wide range of research and practice fields related to designing in culture and arts and to design engineering in science and technology.  I am grateful that the editorial board of the Encyclopedia accepted and published the two sections.  These articles are easy-to-understand introductions for general readers of the Encyclopedia, and for the learners and practitioners of TRIZ.  (snips)

Under the permission by the publisher, the two articles are posted in "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" both in the original PDF and in the HTML pages having additional links to the reference pages in this Web site.  (English translation of these articles are not ready.)

Significance of the World TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP) and its World WTSP Catalogs -- Message from Dr. Bill Fowlkes (USA)

We received a message from Dr. Bill Fowlkes about a month ago, as shown below. Our several turns of communications with him are posted in its full length in my Web site "TRIZ Home Page in Japan".

His message points the heart of our WTSP project and its Catalogs.
We very much appreciate Dr. Fowlkes for his support and encouragement.

We are initializing WTSP Teams in various countries.

Let's work Together ! Connected !!

 


 

  [WTSP] Letters (15C-1) For starting the WTSP work in individual countries 

 

Toru Nakagawa ==> 9 TRIZ leaders/colleagues in UK   Nov. 25, 2019   [WTSP] Letter (15C-1uk) For starting the WTSP work in UK

Hello, how are you?
On Oct. 10, we gave a presentation on the WTSP project at ETRIA TFC2019 in Marrakech, Morocco. As I posted the paper and slides in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", we have accomplished the important initial step in our Word TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP). Please refer to the PDF file of 'Summary Slides' attached.

By using both Bottom-up and Top-down approaches, we have built the Preliminary Versions of the WTSP Catalogs; especially (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.
The document structure of the WTSP Catalogs has been established in a way for us to build the Catalogs smoothly and for the users to read and use them effectively.

At this stage, we very much need your help and contributions to build the World WTSP Catalogs (UK Part).
The present version (WTSP Catalogs (2019)) is still very weak because only 4 countries (among nearly 50 countries using TRIZ) contributed their manuscripts of their parts of the WTSP Catalogs.
Even though you are working actively with TRIZ and are operating many active and useful Web sites in UK, very little of them are reflected in the current WTSP Catalogs.
As you understand naturally, only people in the UK TRIZ community can best introduce TRIZ-related sites in UK to the people in the world.

For asking you to initialize your WTSP activities in UK, we would like to show you some relevant information here.

(1) The "Practice Guide" is the compact and useful instructions for the WTSP activities in individual countries.   The goals for the WTSP Team in each country is to build the Country's TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for the people of the country, with ◎○□△)and the Country Part of the World TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for people in the whole world, with ◎○□).

(2) For the purpose of forming the WTSP Team in UK, please refer the attached Excel file, where I show about 40 persons in UK who are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies, using my HP mailing list and my connections in LinkedIn at the 1st level.

(a) In UK, the WTSP Team is not formed yet, unfortunately. Beside Darrell Mann, one of the WTSP Global Co-editors, John Cook and Julian Vincent are the WTSP 'Members to be' (who stated to join but have not submitted the Membership Application Forms yet).

(b) Six persons (with WTSP Status D or E in the list) have been invited to join WTSP for these 2 years.
We hope that these 9 people may form a good core of the possible WTSP Team in UK. (This email is addressed to you as one of these 9 people.)

(c) Tasks for building WTSP Catalogs can be carried out by many people in parallel, each should work only (half) a day for filling the Site Description Form concerning to one's own site.
But for such parallel work, you need a Coordinator. The last slide in the 'Summary Slides' writes as: "The Team leader should have the image of the goal (i.e., completed Catalogs), understand what to do and how to do in practice, be confident that the goal is reachable, and encourage and guide the Team members.
Team members and leaders should also be confident that their efforts are helpful for many people and fruitful for themselves as well."
I am sure that all of you understand these points.

(d) The people shown in the Excel file will be good supporters and contributors of WTSP, because they are involved in most of good/useful Web sites we want to introduce in our WTSP Catalogs.
You certainly have much more elaborate list of relevant people, I suppose.

(3) The first activity is to gather information of 'recommendable sites in UK'.

(e) You may use the template shown in the Practice Guide.

(f) It may be useful to send the information of WTSP and the request for recommendation as widely as possible using the name lists shown here and other lists you already have.

(g) Such information may be gathered via emails, or better by using Google Doc or some other similar document sharing system.

(h) Some of the people in the list are interested in various areas AROUND-TRIZ rather than in TRIZ itself.
Please ask them to contribute to revise the World AROUND-TRIZ Catalogs.

We wish you to initiate the WTSP activities in UK in good collaboration.

With best wishes, Toru

PS: I know that you all are busy in your business especially because of the severe and unstable situations due to Brexit. But the WTSP Catalogs will serve to strengthen your business bases for promoting/teaching TRIZ and related methodologies, I believe.

I am sending this email to you, the three persons mentioned, hoping that you form the core of the possible WTSP Team in Netherlands.

Toru Nakagawa ==> Prof. Daniel Sheu (Taiwan)   Nov. 27, 2019   [WTSP] Letter (15C-1tw) For starting the WTSP work in Taiwan

(a) In Taiwan, the WTSP Team is not formed yet, unfortunately. As you see in the list, you are the only person in Taiwan to whom I am regularly sending the information/invitation of the WTSP project.
Could you please serve as the Country Editor of Taiwan for WTSP, because you are the top leader in TRIZ-related methodologies (or Systematic Innovation methodologies, in your word) in Taiwan. I know you are extremely busy, but you will be able to organize a team and get help from them.

(b) The attached list shows 20 more persons in Taiwan who are working/interested in TRIZ and related methodologies. You certainly have much more elaborate lists of relevant people, I suppose.

Toru Nakagawa ==> 12 TRIZ leaders/colleagues in Korea   Nov. 27, 2019   [WTSP] Letter (15C-1kr) For starting the WTSP work in Korea

Hello, how are you?
On Oct. 10, we gave a presentation on the WTSP project at ETRIA TFC2019 in Marrakech, Morocco. As I posted the paper and slides in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", we have accomplished the important initial step in our Word TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP). Please refer to the PDF file of 'Summary Slides' attached.

By using both Bottom-up and Top-down approaches, we have built the Preliminary Versions of the WTSP Catalogs; especially (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.
The document structure of the WTSP Catalogs has been established in a way for us to build the Catalogs smoothly and for the users to read and use them effectively.

At this stage, we very much need your help and contributions to build the World WTSP Catalogs (Korea Part).
The present version (WTSP Catalogs (2019)) is still very weak because only 4 countries (among nearly 50 countries using TRIZ) contributed their manuscripts of their parts of the WTSP Catalogs.
Even though you and your colleagues are working actively with TRIZ and are operating many active and useful Web sites in Korea, very little of them are reflected in the current WTSP Catalogs.
As you understand naturally, only people in the Korea TRIZ community can best introduce TRIZ-related sites in Korea to the people in the world.

For asking you to initialize your WTSP activities in Korea, we would like to show you some relevant information here.

(1) The "Practice Guide" is the compact and useful instructions for the WTSP activities in individual countries.
The goals for the WTSP Team in each country is to build the Country's TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for the people of the country, with ◎○□△)and the Country Part of the World TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for people in the whole world, with ◎○□).

(2) For the purpose of forming the WTSP Team in Korea, please refer the attached Excel file, where I show about 75 persons in Korea who are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies, using my HP mailing list and my connections in LinkedIn at the 1st level.

(a) In Korea, the WTSP Team is not formed yet, unfortunately. I am sending you, i.e., top 12 persons in the list indicated as 'WTSP Status': A, B, D, or E.
A: Member of WTSP, having submitted the Membership Application Form. (3 persons)
B: 'Member to be', who stated to join WTSP but has not submitted the Membership Application Form yet. (2 persons)
D/E: Persons to whom the WTSP information and invitations are sent regularly for these 2 (or 1) years.
All of you are working very actively with TRIZ and hence are in good positions for leading people in the TRIZ community in Korea, once you collaborate together.

(b) I have listed about 60 more people in Korea who are working (or much interested) in TRIZ. I got acquainted with them in the occasions of TRIZCONs, ETRIA TFCs, Japan TRIZ Symposia, GTC2013 in Korea, and also via emails, LinkedIn, and Web sites, etc.
You certainly have much better and elaborate list of people and activities in your TRIZ-related communities.
WTSP Catalogs are expected to be useful for all of them in two ways, i.e. to learn from others and also to show themselves to others (in Korea and in the world).
We (in Japan and in the world) want to learn from you in Korea, through various papers/articles in your Web sites.
For such purposes, please organize the WTSP activities in your country by getting help from all people in your TRIZ-related communities.

(c) Tasks for building WTSP Catalogs can be carried out by many people in parallel, where each should work only (half) a day for filling the Site Description Form concerning to one's own site.
But for such parallel work, we need Coordinator(s). The last slide in the 'Summary Slides' writes as: "The Team leader should have the image of the goal (i.e., completed Catalogs), understand what to do and how to do in practice, be confident that the goal is reachable, and encourage and guide the Team members.
Team members and leaders should also be confident that their efforts are helpful for many people and fruitful for themselves as well."
I am sure that you well understand these points.

(3) The first activity is to gather information of 'recommendable sites in Korea'.

(d) You may use the template shown in the Practice Guide.

(e) It may be useful to send the information of WTSP and the request for recommendation as widely as possible using the name lists shown here and other lists you already have.

(f) Such information may be gathered via emails, or better by using Google Doc or some other similar document sharing system.

(g) Some of the people in the list are interested in various areas AROUND-TRIZ rather than in TRIZ itself. Please ask them to contribute to revise the World AROUND-TRIZ Catalogs.

We wish you to initiate the WTSP activities in Korea in good collaboration.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
With best wishes, Toru

 

Toru Nakagawa ==> 8 TRIZ leaders/colleagues in Italy  Nov. 28, 2019   [WTSP] Letter (15C-1it) For starting the WTSP work in Italy

Hello, how are you?
It was nice to have met some of you again/newly at TFC2019 in Marrakech, Morocco. As I gave a presentation there, and posted later in my "TRIZ Home Page in Japan", we have accomplished the important initial step in the Word TRIZ-related Sites Project (WTSP).

By using both Bottom-up and Top-down approaches, we have built the Preliminary Versions of the WTSP Catalogs; especially (A) World TRIZ Sites Basic Index and (C) World AROUND-TRIZ Sites Basic Index.
The document structure of the WTSP Catalogs has been established in a way for us to build the Catalogs smoothly and for the users to read and use them effectively.

At this stage, we very much need your help and contributions to build the World WTSP Catalogs (Italy Part).
The present version (WTSP Catalogs (2019)) is still very weak because only 4 countries (among nearly 50 countries using TRIZ) contributed their manuscripts of their parts of the WTSP Catalogs.
Even though you are working actively with TRIZ and are operating many active and useful Web sites in Italy, very little of them are reflected in the current WTSP Catalogs.
As you understand naturally, only people in the Italian TRIZ community can best introduce TRIZ-related sites in Italy to the people in the world.

For asking you to initialize your WTSP activities in Italy, we would like to show you some relevant information here.

(1) The "Practice Guide" is the compact and useful instructions for the WTSP activities in individual countries.   The goals for the WTSP Team in each country is to build the Country's TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for the people of the country, with ◎○□△)and the Country Part of the World TRIZ-related Sites Catalogs (for people in the whole world, with ◎○□).

(2) The present WTSP Members and Members to be (who once stated to join WTSP but have not yet submitted the Membership Application Form) in Italy are listed in the attached Excel file, together with many more people who are working/interested in TRIZ-related methodologies.

(a) Matteo Spreafico recently submitted me his WTSP Membership Application Form and kindly volunteers to serve for coordinating the WTSP activities in Italy. So we are asking him to be the WTSP Country Editor of Italy.

(b) We wish Prof. Davide Russo and Prof. Gaetano Cascini to support and guide Matteo.  

(c) I am sending this email to you, 8 persons whom I have been sending our WTSP Letters regularly, hoping you are willing to cooperate in the Italian WTSP Team.

(d) In the Excel file attached here, I have shown 37 people in Italy who are working or interested in TRIZ-related methodologies. They are cited either from Nakagawa's HP mailing list (accumulated and maintained for these 20 years) or Nakagawa's LinkedIn connections (1st level).
I hope they will be good supporters and contributors of WTSP. You certainly have much more elaborate list of relevant people, I suppose.

(3) The first activity is to gather information of 'recommendable sites in Italy'.

(d) You may use the template shown in the Practice Guide.

(e) It may be useful to send the information of WTSP and the request for recommendation as widely as possible using the name lists shown here and other lists you already have.

(f) Such information may be gathered via emails, or better by using Google Doc or some other similar document sharing system.

(g) Some of the people in the list are interested in various areas AROUND-TRIZ rather than in TRIZ itself. Please ask them to contribute to revise the World AROUND-TRIZ Catalogs.

We wish you to initiate the WTSP activities in Italy in good collaboration.
With best wishes, Toru

 


  

 [WTSP] Letter: (15M-3AB/DE) Please submit your WTSP Catalog manuscripts

Toru Nakagawa ==>   WTSP Members and TRIZ Colleagues        Dec. 7, 2019

Dear WTSP Members,
I am going to update the World WTSP Catalogs on Dec. 31, 2019.
Please communicate with me about the WTSP activities in your country and submit your manuscripts of WTSP Catalogs by Dec. 15, 2019.

In late October and early November, I sent [WTSP] letters (15C-1) to TRIZ leaders/colleagues in individual countries, including Poland, France, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Italy, Taiwan, and Korea.
I also posted an article in LinkedIn, showing the nice encouraging message by Dr. Bill Fowlkes on the significance of the WTSP Project and its World Catalogs.

We have entered the 3rd year of our WTSP Project.
We are going to update our WTSP Catalogs, by the contributions of manuscripts from various countries and specialty groups, every 3 months (ends of Dec., Mar., Jun., and Sept.) and report at ETRIA TFC2020 in Oct. 2010 in Romania.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Best wishes, Toru
