"This material is meant to be the first step for those who desire to reach a more profound understanding of the theoretical foundations of TRIZ and OTSM, as well as to learn to employ their instruments with ease for the broadest range of purposes. It may be helpful to one studying the modern condition of OTSM-TRIZ on the stages of reflecting upon and systematizing the mastered material" (from the paper).

**Abstract**

OTSM is a Russian acronym proposed by Genrich Altshuller to describe the next evolution of Classical TRIZ. The acronym can be translated into English as the “General Theory on Powerful Thinking” Mr. Altshuller proposed the idea to transition from Classical TRIZ to OTSM in the mid 1970‘s. Some background ideas for this transition were developed in the 1980‘s, initiating the formal development of OTSM.

This paper presents the structure of Classical TRIZ (the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving created by Genrich Altshuller) and OTSM (the Russian acronym for the General Theory of Powerful Thinking, proposed by Altshuller in several papers and letters to the Russian TRIZ community between 1975 and 1986). In brief, the model comprises a key problem to be solved by the theory and the assumptions established to solve it. A set of fundamental models based on these assumptions was developed as the theory evolved. Practical instruments were then developed on the basis of these models (i.e.
