Paper: "Comparing the Classical and New Contradiction Matrix:
Part 2. Zooming In" by Darrell Mann, TRIZ Journal, Jul. 2004;
Japanese translation by T. Nakagawa
When Mr. Genrich Altshuller developed TRIZ (i.e., Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) in the former USSR, he first built "40 Inventive Principles" by extracting the essence of inventive ideas from a large number of patents. Then, facing with the students' question "Which Inventive Principles should we use in which situations?", he developed the "Contradiction Matrix". He represented various problems in the formulation that "we wish to improve our system in certain aspect (i.e. parameter), but we are facing with a problem because such an improvement may worsen the system in another aspect". Then he developed a large table (i.e. Matrix) so as to recommend a few relevant Inventive Principles in each of the situations of the improving and worsening parameter pairs. For such a development, a huge number of patents had to be analyzed in their contents. Engineers who became acquainted with this table, in the former days as well as in our current days, have been much impressed with the greatness in the research plan and have thought the table as a crystal embodying the core knowledge of TRIZ.
However, because of needing such a huge labor to updating the Contradiction Matrix, the Matrix has not been made up-to-date for about 30 years since early 1970s. During these 30 years, TRIZ has been developed and extended much in its philosophy, in its ways of thinking, as knowledge bases and software tools, and in its fields of application. For understanding TRIZ in the current form and for applying it to your problems, you are recommended to refer to the first volume of this series "Hands-On Systematic Innovation" written by Darrell Mann (Japanese Edition, 2004).
In year 2000, CREAX, directed by Darrell Mann, initiated a large-scale research plan and have analyzed since then all the US patents from 1985 to the present by using the Altshuller's method in a modernized way (see Sections 1 and 2 of the text). The output of the research has been reflected in the newly published textbook of "Hands-On Systematic Innovation" and also resulted in the new edition of the "Contradiction Matrix", fully up-to-date as you see here.
The significant points of the new Contradiction Matrix may be summarized as:
The updated Contradiction Matrix has been tried to use by various users in Japan and over the world, and is evaluated to be much smoother and more effective in use than the original version. Effectiveness of the two versions has been examined most thoroughly by the Author, Darrell Mann, himself. For the examination, he has selected 100 US patents with the criteria that they were granted after the publication of this book and that he found 'wonderful' ideas in the solutions. Then he analyzed the patents to reveal the problems in the framework of the Matrix and the successful ideas in terms of the Inventive Principles. Thus Mann has found that for the 206 cases of inventors' successful application of the Inventive Principles, the classical Contradiction Matrix has suggested Principles with 27 % of matching while the new Matrix with 96% [see Mann's paper posted in the TRIZ Journal in English and in the TRIZ Home Page in Japan in Japanese]. This significant difference is interpreted as the reflection of rapid development in science and technology for these 30 years, especially in the fields of electronics, software, bio-technology, etc. and as the shifts in the usage of Inventive Principles (from the 'machanics-oriented' days).
After publishing the present book, CREAX has further gone ahead in the following ways (see Section 8 of this book):
translation for this
Japanese Edition was carried out by Toru Nakagawa, while the
figures, the appendix sheet, and book design were done by Kazuo Gotoh
Co. Ltd.). Because of much demands from
users, the translation work was done in a short time but with much care
improve the usefulness as a data book for readers/users.
We also wish to make a Japanese Edition of
the software tool in collaboration with CREAX.
We wish you, the readers/users, to actively use the present book
TRIZ for solving your own problems and for developing technology
