Nikolai Khomenko, Eric Schenk. Igor Kaikov. OTSM-TRIZ problem network technique: application to the history of German high-speed trains (ETRIA, 2006)

Research is a human activity that involves lot of intellectual instruments to solve various problems and keep the research going on in order to get theoretical result valuable for practical application. Historical research often provides analysis of problems were solved in the past along the evolution of the research subject. Research in the domain of management and investment also need analysis of this kind.

Khomenko N. Super-short introduction into Classical TRIZ and OTSM

"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).

The shorthand record of the conversation with Boguslav Bushev. February 27. Minsk, 1999


The conversation deals with the problems of nonlinear training in OTSM-TRIZ. Describing the methodical details of using the Yes-Know game, N.N. speaks about contradiction types, the Element-Feature-Value model, parallelizing of a problem-solving process. The last part of the conversation is dedicated to the problems of creating a digital modular teaching aid in OTSM-TRIZ – its structure, application methods, including the possibilities of using such a teaching aid for the development of the theory itself.

Khomenko, N.N. Elements of the General Theory of Powerful Thinking (OTSM). A Monologue for Sveta

A conversation with Svetlana Lavrentieva (Kucherova) (1964-2011) presumably took place in 1997 (the hardcopy is dated November 1998). The conversation was dedicated to the basic ideas and tools of the general theory of strong thinking. The emphasis was laid on the then new tools – the "element - feature - meaning" model and four basic problem-solving technologies (subsequently named OTSM-technologies of the 1st generation).
