Subject: TRIZ in Defense

Dear Mr. Filkovsky:

I researched and study about TRIZ, recently I try to find some example/case study or patent about application of TRIZ in Defense, I see a paper in anti-triz journal written with you, with title of "TRIZ Inventive Principles in the Evolution of Defense", is it possible for you to share some of your example/ case study in this area with me?

Amir H. M .Kermani

Dear Amir,

Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, I didn't fully understand your request. The article you refer to contains a few examples. Are you asking for more of such?

Best regards,

Dear Mr. Filkovsky:

Tank you very much for your quick respond. I need some complete example/case study about application of TRIZ in defense, the article I referred just contain the title of some examples, for example you write "Principle 7, Nested doll: The Armor" or "Another dimension: The Patriot Missile", etc. but I want to have some complete examples, what is the first problem? How they formulate the problem and find contradictions and how apply inventive principle(s) and find the final solution? I hope I can say my request clearly; I look forward to your answer.

Best regards,

Amir

Dear Amir,

I am sorry about this misunderstanding, but it seems I need to spell it out. My article, "TRIZ Inventive Principles in the Evolution of Defense", is an irony, i.e. "the use of words to express the opposite of what one really means" (according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary). I don't really believe that these examples represent in any way TRIZ principles, or evolution of defense. Moreover, I believe that it is ridiculous to think that such examples are "case studies", and that they are applications of TRIZ principles. The article was written as a parody ("a humorous or satirical imitation") on many ridiculous articles in The TRIZ Journal, which retroactively attach TRIZ labels to existing solutions in various fields. Specifically, I don't believe that duct tape is a next step in evolution of defense.

I don't think you'd want a consultant with such attitude.

Genady.

P.S. By the way, you refer to "our client" and "we pay": could you clarify, who are "we" in this case, please?
