76 Inventive standards
Inventive standards are techniques for solving problems, presented with Su-Field models. To be more precise, a standard is a pattern on how to modify the physical structure of a system to solve a problem with an according Su-Field Model. Today, TRIZ knows 76 of these standards. The standards are categorized in 5 classes:
Class 1: Synthesis and decomposition of Su-fields. These solutions improve the useful interaction effect or eliminate a harmful function
Class 2: Evolution of Systems. These solution push the system further towards ideality by suggesting other controlled fields or technological advanced substances for example.
Class 3: Transitions towards supersystem or microlevel. These standards will guide us towards multisystems and miniaturization.
Class 4: Measurement and detection. These patterns improve the measurement and detection issues in the studied system.
Class 5: Helpers. The last set of standards will introduce fields and substances in order to obtain better results
Many inventive standards introduce new substances and/or fields to provide the necessary transformation of the system. Be sure though, to check the TRIZ substances and fields what type of fields and substance you can introduce. More information on these standards can be found on our blog.
