TRIZ Prior Action Principle

TRIZ's Principle 10 says that you should do whatever change is necessary before an object is needed. This can mean getting ready for something in advance, like having the wall paper already on the wall or sterilizing all the equipment for surgery. It can also mean having everything in place so you can start working as soon as possible, like having the tools and materials you need for a job all gathered together before you start. Doing things in advance saves time and hassle later on.

Prior action is about anticipating needs and taking action before something is actually required. This can be done in two ways:

  1. Performing the required change in advance
  2. Pre-arranging objects such that they can come into action from the most convenient place

Both of these methods save time and hassle later on by being prepared in advance.

Performing the required change in advance means that you are ready for something before it is actually needed. This can be done by sterilizing all the equipment for surgery ahead of time or by having the wall paper already on the wall. Pre-arranging objects so they can come into action from the most convenient place means that you have everything you need fora job in one place before you start. This can be done by having a car jack, wheel brace, and spare tyre stored together or by collecting all the tools and materials for the job before starting.
