This course aims to present the main tools of the TRIZ method. At the end of this course, the student should be able to identify relevant situations for the use of the method and to use these tools in problem solving situations. Innovative problem solving is an approach that creates breakthrough with the classic creativity approaches and consists in formalizing the problem and using generic and systematic tools for exploring the solution space.
