Structured Innovation Method for our Productivity Puzzle

We have been engaged in a java based development project where the development process is well defined and stream lined. We had already optimized the development process to a fairly optimal level and automated some key areas of development that gave us a good productivity boost. However the productivity levels achieved with all the process optimization and the automations we adopted were still not sufficient to meet the deadlines, we would be behind schedule by nearly a month if the same productivity was carried forward.

EMC Trends 2013 TRIZ overlay

As eleven EMC executives offer their predictions of which technologies and trends will transform cloud computing, Big Data and IT security the most in 2013, my aim is to find the underlying triz trend and possibly push one more evolution round. I assume a time frame of 1 year, basis is 8 TRIZ evolution trends applied to Mobile, applied on EMC executives predictions. Prediction quote (emphasis and few links are mine) My warped explanation of the underlying TRIZ trend What can happen next on this trend an intelligence-driven security model…will require multiple components including: a thorough understanding of risk, the use of agile controls based on pattern recognition and predictive analytics, and the use of big data analytics to give context to vast streams of data from numerous sources to produce timely, actionable information Law of completeness exemplified with the ENGINE understood as risks and risk related information originating across the board with a TRANSMISSION visualized as streams of information flowing to WORKING UNIT where actions are initiated from the information to contain risks and its effects and having some CONTROL on the above elements including analytics Law of uneven development on above will mean the 4 elements will evolve in different speeds.

Infinte Resources: A Drive for Evolution

If Evolution is continous then resources must be infinite. Othewise Evolution should stop at some economic juncture. Let’s take an example using a simple economic analysis. Let’s say If we are left with only 100 units of energy in universe. Making it simple , let’s say 100 units of petrol.  Here are few assumptions #Let’s say 40 units are required to covert to electric car. #Let’s say a car with electric motor delivers 20% higher fuel economy.

Cloud Computing: Analogy to Automotive

Read about Cloud Computing and learnt that it is a solution which seperates the function of computing (Heavy Lifting job) and Display. This is like combining / integrating CPU of all the computers to form a Cloud and providing user with only User interface connected to Cloud through internet. This reduces the Cost as user will only pay for services (ex: 3D modelling) being used with hourly based rates. Second , size of devises is reduced as it’s function is to only display information.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ay8eSNrp9I4&w=560&h=315] From our last podcast discussing a few trends from TRIZ portfolio system evolution, we are continuing this time with a few more trends and an evolution from podcast to video. Only thing we probably missed was using the full size Casio keyboard that was right next to us for some extra sound effects. Hope you enjoy it.

8 TRIZ evolution trends applied to Mobile

Cross posting from http://trizindia.wordpress.com/2012/10/01/8-triz-evolution-trends-applied-to-mobile/ This was a long pending post, originally to be delivered as a pod cast, but we never got around to doing it. The core idea was to take a commonly used system like a smart phone, apply the 8 evolution trends of TRIZ and exemplify them. For a brief introduction on the trends go here, I would love to see other resources from the readers as well.

Welcome – 500th Member

Dear All TRIZINdian friends  I too welcome the 500th Member to this group. One suggestion: When you are recording the audio for publishing in the site, let the participant prepare the write up and read from it. Otherwise lot of extra noise (like yea.. ) arises and the user will not be able to grasp the content.  Best Regards Joseph  Mindset Solutions India  S M S I
