Faster and more effective problem solving and innovation processing by
rigorously avoiding trial-and-error methods. Reduced risks and costs during the development stage.
Forecasting the development of technical systems, creating protecting
patent fences, revealing uncovered product niches.
Enhanced quality control and optimised products through a focussed search
for alternative solutions and the application of anticipatory failure identification.
Generating of ideas in seemingly hopeless situations, where practically
all conceivable solutions are covered by competitor's patents.
Optimal use of system resources: e.g. eliminating negative effects
in a machine or process by only slightly modifying the technical system.
Integration and supplementation possibilities with
DFSS (Design for Six Sigma), DFMA (Design for
Manufacture and Assembly), FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), QFD (Quality Function Deployment),
Value Engineering, Taguchi (Robust Design) and other methods.
