Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Mar. 4, 2013)

This page is a collection of all the papers/presentations published by Mr. Toshio Takahara from 2008 to 2012 in the area related to TRIZ and contains an annotated bibliography written by the author and links to individual papers/presentations in PDF.  This is the second collection of Takahara's papers.

In March 2008, I posted in this site the first one: "Theory of Resolving Differences", A Collection of Papers Written by Toshio Takahara (2003-2007) .  It contains all the 14 papers/presentations which Mr. Takahara published during the 5 years from 2003 to 2007, after retiring an IT industry.  They are the results of his insights and thoughts extended independently.  It was the first case for the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan" to publish a full collection of papers written by a specific author.  Being impressed with the depth and clarity of his theoretical works, I wanted to avoid the works from being missed and to record them publicly in the present site.  You are invited to refer to the first Collection.

I actually received a year ago the manuscripts of the present postings.  In February 2012, I received an email from Mr. Takahara with the attachment of a PPT file of his presentation at TRIZ Symposium 2011 with newly inserted annotation of the talk.  He said in the email that he was at hospital for a month and was going to have a surgery on heart valve disease in a week.  Since I was thinking to prepare for posting a second collection of his works, I mentioned so in my reply.  On the day before his operation, he sent me via email 6 files of his papers published elsewhere than our TRIZ Symposium and also the manuscript of his bibliography.  Mentally preparing for the considerable risk, he deposited me the set of his works, I thought and I received them with much thanks.

The operation was successful.  He was on a mechanical ventilator and an external pacemaker for a while and was discharged from the hospital in a month.  After a few months he restarted his work very actively, to our surprise and pleasure. He submitted a paper to the TRIZ Symposium 2012 both in Japanese and in English (he was scheduled in a poster session but could not attend at it).  He volunteered to translate Professor Cavallucci's Keynote paper and presentation into Japanese (together with Mr. Hideaki Kosha).  I was delighted with such a smooth recovery of his health, and was not ready for preparing the postings of his works until last January. 

On January 24 this year, I received from Mr. Takahara additional files of his works published up to the end of 2012 and his revised bibliography.  The  bibliography is written in the same format with the First Collection and describes about 13 papers, numbered from [15] to [27].  Individual papers may contain (especially in the cases of our TRIZ Symposium) a full paper in Japanese, presentation slides in Japanese, a full paper in English, and presentation slides in English (or some parts of them). Postings are in the PDF format.  (Note:  In a few cases he made also presentation slides with annotations.  They are not linked in the present page, but are accessible through the HTML pages of each paper.)

Takahara has elaborately built a theory of very wide perspectives.  Accordingly, he had to introduce new concepts and a new set of terminology, which may be somewhat confusing for new readers.  However, once you accept his concepts and terminology, you may find Takahara describes his theory clearly and logically.  

It is my pleasure to post the Second Collection of Takahara's Works in this Web site.  We thank Mr. Toshio Takahara for his permission of republishing his papers/presentations here, and we heartily pray for his health and happiness.  I hope that a number of readers will really understand the messages and significance of his works and extend his theory further.

1.The position of the papers

In 2003 to 2007, Takahara investigated the method of Resolving Differences and a way how to express it by making clear the concepts of object, object world which is combination of objects, attributes, granularity and function. Granularity is range of space and time and / or attributes.

Resolving Differences in broad sense consists of Resolving Differences in narrow sense which is usual object change following the articles [10] [TS2003] and [14] [Ts2007] and going together which is expansion of usual contradiction.

Every movement of nature, human behavior and thought are Resolving Differences in broad sense from a viewpoint of contents. And ideal human thought is Radical Thinking for Enumeration from a viewpoint of form.

The study on what bring Resolving Differences makes me approach the form of Radical Thinking for Enumeration. Radical Thinking for Enumeration is a generalization of attitudes and method of K. Marx and G. S. Altshuller.

It is a movement that causes Resolving Differences in narrow sense and going together which is expansion of usual contradiction. This movement is used to be dealt with contradiction by Genrikh S. Altshuller. Contradiction by Altshuller is an expansion of that of Marx and Engels. It is contradiction that is movement viewed from the viewpoint of dynamic structure. Movement and contradiction have same granularity from a viewpoint of range of space and time and different granularity from a viewpoint of attributes.

The world is approximately an assemblage of movements or contradictions. Movement in this sense or contradiction is an approximate unit of the world. Movement in this sense or contradiction consists of matter and dynamic relation.

Movement in this sense or contradiction can deal with every human behavior including technology, institution and individual action and thought. So we can deal with the way how to live. Next figure shows main theme and article number in left side in 2008- 2012 and main theme in right side in 2003- 2007.

2.Bibliography

[15] [TS2008]
TAKAHARA, “The General Picture of TRIZ From the Viewpoint of Changing Objects―A Method of Resolving Differences Based on the Concepts of Functions and Process Objects Part 3― ”, The 4th TRIZ Symposium in Japan, 2008.

An important thing is only to make a necessary change on a necessary Object in some necessary way. If we could find minimum types of elements, by the combination of which we could reconstruct the original one in the area of Object and making changes, it could be said to obtain unified method of changing Objects. As a part of this study I investigate the types of changing Objects within two attributes and two Objects.

These studies make clear that TRIZ is an assemblage of changes of Objects consisting of segmentation and merging of attributes, segmentation and merging of Objects and change of attributes including handling “physical contradiction” and “technical contradiction”.

Object has inner structure and attributes which produce function to the outside. From this point of view I classify the existing 40 principles in TRIZ into eight types of principles consisting of basic principles, structure principles, dynamic principles, replace principles, plus principles, minus principles, equal principles and “anti” principles.

[16] [FIT2008]
TAKAHARA, “A Trial Study of Changing Two Objects – Reconsidering Object Part 7 –”, FIT2008,2008.

My purpose is to make a new formal theory or logic to innovate the world using TRIZ. The requirements on the ideal theory of recognition and changing of the world are to handle every object to be recognized and to operate it in every possible types of changing object in every applying area including technology and institution.

I try to enumerate several types of changing Object within two attributes and two Objects. This is a mixture of intentional change which I call Resolving Differences, unintentional change and autonomous change including contradiction in the area of technology and institution.

TAKAHARA, “TRIZ as the Way of Life?”, The 5th TRIZ Symposium in Japan, 2009. (Slides only)

My starting point is an intention to expand applicable area of TRIZ to wider area. Although TRIZ had its origin in technology, it has been widely applied to so-called “non-technical” area such as business area.

On the other hand TRIZ as I showed in slide No.9 in 2008, I recognized that TRIZ have a possibility of unified thought and method applicable to every area including not only technical area but also personal area and institutional area.

So I intend to apply TRIZ to a way of life or how to live. I reconsider the way of life based on Nakagawa’s Essence of TRIZ in 50 Words;

“TRIZ provides a dialectic way of thinking,
i.e.,
to understand the problem as a system,
to image the ideal solution first, and
to solve contradictions.”

To live is to change Objects to realize value. How to live is the attitudes or thought and method to live.

TAKAHARA, “The Ideal of TRIZ ―TRIZ as the Way of Life? Part 2―”, The 6th TRIZ Symposium in Japan, 2010.

TRIZ could be applicable to every area including technological area and institutional area because TRIZ is an assemblage of methods consisting of changing one attribute, solving contradictions, segmenting and merging of attributes and objects, as I presented at the 4th Japan TRIZ Symposium.

This paper surveys a concept of object, methods and thought of TRIZ. I will investigate the movement of objects of consciousness at the beginning process of barter as an example in the area which usual TRIZ does not deal with. And I will show unified four types of realization of every purpose and propose a radical thinking for enumeration.

Dialectical Logic had been widely taught in former Soviet Union. Attitudes to review this Dialectical Logic by Genrikh S. Altshuller gave TRIZ a powerful possibility. Every philosophy, every thought even every method was appeared to the earth by attitudes of the originator to review existing one.

It is a valuable lesson taught from history for us if we forgot to continue to review every philosophy, every thought or every method, they stopped to expand and even corrupted. Originally Dialectical Logic teaches us the way of object how to interact each other and how to change all the time. We should continue to review Dialectical Logic all the time.

Contradiction consists of two opposites and mutual relation between two opposites from inner point of view. It has function of movement from outer point of view. It is an approximate element of structures and processes of the world.

Contradiction has three types which consist of autonomous movement, movement to ignite action and that of unity. “Physical contradiction” has three types. “Technical contradiction” has four types.

The form of human history especially in institutional area is segmenting objects and partly merging object to acquire progress in life. But now we need some unification between object and I, between community and I, between viewpoint and attitude, between philosophy and method and humble attitude and critical attitude etc. These “opposites” form contradiction of unity.

The final ideal can be obtained by resolving “Technical Contradiction 2” and Contradiction of unity. Continuous every action or thought of every person can contribute to the final ideal.

Correct thinking consists of setting correct granularity of object and method from among enumerated objects and methods and adapting correct logic under correct value.
One of requirements of correct thinking is to manage granularity of object, enumeration of objects.
Granularity is size, magnitude or scope in space and/ or time and degree of abstraction of attributes of something which is specified by points of view.
Granularity and enumeration have mutually related constraint. We can get correct granularity of object only from among the perfectly enumerated objects. Without enumeration of objects we might miss the adequate granularity of object.
Granularity of object and enumeration of objects is the base of relation between objects and movement of object. At first sight granularity and enumeration are important only in the situation of changing objects adequately. But we will later notice the importance of them in the situation of making a discovery of a type or law from among various phenomena.
Usually we do an act of changing objects remaining unconscious of granularity of object, enumeration of objects and value.
In this paper I propose a way to manage granularity of object and enumeration of objects consciously. In this context constraints between granularity and enumeration are also shown.

Contradiction is re-formulated by managing granularity and enumeration.
Contradiction is either generalized “Physical Contradiction” which two attributes are going together or “Technical Contradiction” which two values are resolving differences. All movement is contradiction and all change is caused by movement.

In Chapter 3 I propose some method of managing granularity and enumeration of objects consciously, which gives a formal ground of Radical Thinking of previous papers[TS2009] [TS2011].
In Chapter 4 I re-formulate contradiction by managing granularity and enumeration.
In Chapter 5 I summarize methods of resolving differences.
