TRIZ Principle 1: Segmentation

TRIZ provides a general methodology for system segmentation that begins with an analysis of the functions of the system and their relationships. From this information, TRIZ practitioners can identify possible areas of improvement and potential solutions. Once potential solutions have been identified, TRIZ practitioners can use a variety of tools to further analyze the system and determine the most effective way to implement the proposed changes. In some cases, it may be necessary to segment the system into smaller parts in order to more easily apply the TRIZ tools and principles. This process of breaking down a system into smaller parts is known as segmentation. Segmentation can also be used to improve distribution, analysis, and apportionment within a system. By segmenting a system, it is possible to better understand how the different parts work together and identify areas where improvements can be made. Additionally, segmentation can be used to bisect a problem in order to more easily find a solution. However, it is important to note that segmentation should only be used when it is absolutely necessary and should not be used as a way to simply divide a problem into smaller pieces. When used properly, segmentation can be an incredibly powerful tool for TRIZ practitioners.
