zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.

Innovative product development process by integrating QFD and TRIZ. (English) Zbl 1064.90557
Summary. QFD (Quality Function Deployment) has been used to reflect the needs of customers in products, while TRIZ (a Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) was developed to assist engineers in finding innovative solutions to technical problems in product development processes. However, no method has been proposed to integrate QFD with TRIZ effectively. This report describes a new method, named the Innovative Product Development Process (IPDP), which systematically integrates QFD with TRIZ and enables the effective and systematic creation of technical innovation for new products. In IPDP, the target products’ functions and mechanisms are deployed in parallel into hierarchical structures, and the mechanism that most requires technical innovation is specified from an analysis of customers’ needs by calculating a mechanism weight. Then, the technical problems to be solved are defined by considering the relationship between the specified mechanism and corresponding functions or quality characteristics, and technical innovation is executed by applying TRIZ. The effectiveness of IPDP was confirmed by applying it to the technical innovation of a washing machine.
