A System for Preventing from Our Leaving Things Behind
-- A Case in 2-Day USIT Training Seminar --
(Osaka Gakuin University, Japan)
USIT (Unified Structured Inventive Thinking) is a methodology and an overall procedure for creative problem solving, originally developed by Ed Sickafus and then further enhanced by the present author as a new generation of TRIZ.Usage and training of USIT are demonstrated in the present paper by example of an actual case of problem solving in a 2-Day USIT Training Seminar carried out with participants in a multi-company situation.The problem was to concept a practical system for preventing from our leaving things behind, such as a bag on a train's shelf, glasses on a restaurant table, an umbrella at an entrance, etc.The initially-vague problem was to be defined more clearly in terms of 'the timing of leaving a thing behind'.Then the situation is analyzed in the USIT scheme of Objects-Attributes-Functions and Space & Time, and ideal solutions are imagined by use of the USIT Particles method.On the basis of these analyses various solution ideas are generated and are composed into a conceptual solution.This example shows the USIT's capability of handling problems which are initially-vague , related to software, and oriented to process, etc.
