Applying Six Sigma with the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) to Reduce the Time to Solve Problems 2007-01-2585
This paper explores the interrelation of Six Sigma and TRIZ. The use of Six Sigma DMAIC and/or DCOV principles with merging of inventive principles of TRIZ is a suggestion of paths forward to reduce the time to solve problems. The search for solutions is paralyzed in some circumstances because of psychological inertia because of it is natural for people to rely on their own experience and not think outside their comfort spot. Six Sigma pollinated with TRIZ is an opportunity to find the ideal final result. A case study on a Truck Turn Signal is used to illustrate the idea.
