Designing Better Products Faster Using the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving
"I recently purchased Designing and Manufacturing Better Products Faster Using TRIZ. I have found the book to be very useful and really like the power of using Tool-Object-Product modeling along with the standard techniques. I believe I've built a solid knowledge of how to define a system's functions and then apply classical TRIZ tools. What I've liked about the TOP-TRIZ methodology as described in this book is that I feel that it will allow me to use the foundation of TRIZ that I've built and now apply it in a more practical and efficient way. I have especially appreciated the improvements on Su-F analysis and the 76 standard solutions provided by the use of the flow chart, TOP modeling and the Standard Techniques. I find the flow chart that is printed on each of the divider tab pages at the beginning of each section to be very useful in understanding the systematic flow of the technique."
"Zinovy Royzen is an expert master of TRIZ and instructor of thousands of TRIZ practitioners. This fieldbook will enable anyone who has studied TRIZ to use the full problem solving power of the method without requiring expensive software packages or other aids. His flow chart is masterful in helping to pick the right tool set for your situation. The book is especially powerful for Zinovy's simplification of ARIZ-85, its all there, but it just seems to flow better with Zinovy's approach. The same can be said for his innovative TOP analysis, which supplants the difficult Su-Field analysis. If you are an engineer who has taken a TRIZ class, but needs a guide for actually applying TRIZ, this book is for you. If you have not studied TRIZ, what are you waiting for? Your competitors are out-innovating you!"

"I'm absolutely impressed ! The structure of the Standard Techniques is excellent and very clear and logical. I like a lot all the micro-algorithms and excellent worksheets which make the book very "hands-on". Also the many examples and exercises are very good. I wish I discovered this book 5 years earlier."
