Philosophy, Theory, and Practice
A recent application of TRIZ, Directed Evolution (DE) has been in development since the mid-1980s. Taken as a whole, DE comprises a complex group of works related to the management and control of technological evolution.
This book presents the recent theoretical and methodological findings that have resulted from consideration of the philosophy and potential of DE on a global scale, and from the practical experience gained from DE projects conducted in various industries, including chemical, automotive, consumer products, and software development. Also discussed is the vital role of DE in the global processes of managing evolution.
The step-by-step DE process is presented, and selected (and simplified) tools suitable for conducting DE on systems of medium complexity are described. A list of frequently asked questions and a bibliography are also included.
