Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Dec. 20, 2017)

This is the Index Page of the World TRIZ Sites Project (WTSP) for announcing its activities and outputs to people primarily outside the Project.  WTSP intends to Build a (big) page of introducing/linking Web Sites in TRIZ (and its related fields and methodologies) in the world, by the voluntary cooperation of TRIZ Leaders/Colleagues in the world.

This page intends to show two types of information:  (A) basic WTSP information (e.g., policies, organization, platform, guidelines, accesses, publicized outputs, etc.) in its up-to-date form, and (B) up-to-date announcements of activities, invitations, outputs, etc. 
For making this page compact, it mostly serves as indexes with hyperlinks to separate pages of contents.

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

  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. 

  (3A) with the keywords Creat* Think* Method*  (Toru Nakagawa)  (May 18, 2019)

The keywords were interpreted much widely to include the words: Make, Build, Feel, Way, etc.  The outputs are much diluted, and I obtained the results: ◎ 1 site, ○ 4 sites, □ 15 sites, △ 3 sites, and - 84 sites. 

  (3A2) with the keywords Creative Think Method  (Toru Nakagawa)  (May 18, 2019)

The keywords work well to output 194 sites. I evaluated them as: ◎ 1 site, ○ 15 sites, □ 65 sites, △ 31 sites, L (Listed already elsewhere) 15 sites, and - 56 sites.  The sites are shown in the HTML page and in the .docx file

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

Surveys of TRIZ-related sites are carried out in a top-down approach by use of Internet Search engines. 
Processes of the internet search and further data handling for understanding and evaluating the sites are devised and described in detail.  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.
For confirming the survey strategy, the effectiveness of the 'Base Document' (Nakagawa, May 2008) has been examined.  It is concluded 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, and description of introductions of sites is left to be done by the collaboration of many TRIZ colleagues. 
-- Data parts in these pages are shown in a tabular form, for easier handling of the data. (Apr. 9, 2019) 

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  

The sites output by the Interner search are evaluated as: ◎ 6, ○ 13, □ 29, △ 33, - 25. And the top 81 sites are listed with their Evaluation symbol, site name, site URL, and number of pages hit by Site search.  

  (2B) written in Russian in the world   (Toru Nakagawa, Michael Orloff)  

Internet search outputs 106 sites.  Page title and site name, site URL, and URL for site search are listed without evaluation yet.  Michael Orloff listed the URLs of 26 Selected sites operated by TRIZ profesionals, and 49 sites/pages of TRIZ users.

  (2C) written in German in the world  

Internet search outputs 107 sites.  They are listed without evaluation yet. 

  (2D) written in French in the world  

Internet search outputs 90 sites. They are listed without evaluation yet.

  (2E) written in Spanish/Portuguese in the world  

Internet search outputs 123 sites, but 73 of them are irrelevant because of a female singer's name Triz..  50 sites are listed without evaluation yet.

  (2F) written in English in USA   

Interner search outputs 90 sites, and they are evaluated as: ◎ 6, ○ 11, □ 27, △24, -22
