This work presents a novel and efficient design tool called S-ARIZ. A comparative analysis is performed of algorithms for inventive problem solving (Russian acronym of ARIZ). The eight ARIZ versions initially introduced allow designers to become familiar with another TRIZ approach in addition to the contradiction matrix, inventive principles, and substance-field (Su-Field) analysis. The comparison results provide a valuable reference for designers using the innovative design method. Based on the comparison results, each version of ARIZ consists of three stages: analysis for examining contradictions, contradiction removal for resolving conflicts and solution extension for extending the usage of a solution. The three individual stages that show what suitable TRIZ tools (or concepts) and auxiliary features are available to obtain system information are compared in detailed. System contradictions are also resolved, along with the solutions verified as well. Finally, a simplified ARIZ (S-ARIZ) is developed for easy use by designers in different fields. An example demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed method.
