TRIZ Evolution Trends in Biological and Technological Design Strategies

By N. R. Bogatyrev and O. A. Bogatyreva


The concept of evolution in technology and biology is discussed. It appears that most of the evolution trends in technology and biology result from different development strategies. This conflict has roots from the time when technology emerged to adapt the environment for our needs. Following that strategy to full extent is dangerous. We need also to adapt to the environment, but current technology neither has the mechanisms for such changes nor the knowledge of which directions to go. Therefore learning from nature is a real challenge. We suggest ten new evolution trends for strategic design to be ahead on future markets.Organised by: Cranfield UniversityMori Seiki – The Machine Tool Compan
