APPLICATION OF THEORY OF INVENTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING FOR SYSTEMATIC INNOVATION: CASE STUDY OF WATER DISPENSER DESIGN
This paper presents the application of the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) method in providing systematic innovation process of consumer product. The TRIZ contradiction matrix and 40 inventive principles tools were employed in this project and its applications was demonstrated through a case study of a water dispenser. The final outcome obtained was the development of new water dispensing bottle design which is able to address the need for easy and cost effective solution while retaining the current principle of operation especially during the water bottle changeover process
