innovation processes

We have gathered some popular innovation processes that has proved useful to us over the years.

 

BIOLOGY AND TRIZ

Combining the use of TRIZ (Toolkit-based on analysis of technical contradictions in patents) with biological functions.

BIOLOGICALLY INSPIRED CONCEPT GENERATION

Method for functionally representing biological systems through systematic design techniques.

NATURE-INSPIRED ENGINEERING

Research focusing on self-organising and hierarchal structures for engineering.

DESIGN BY ANALOGY TO NATURE ENGINE

The aim is to provide designers with two principle design tools: the ability to create and maintain structured descriptions of biological systems, and the ability to quickly access descriptions useful to a designer's project.

BIOLOGICALLY-INSPIRED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

A searchable database of bio-inspired engineering knowledge, created cataloging examples of biologically inspired research for both the design and manufacturing of engineered products and devices.

BioM INNOVATION DATABASE

Database of over 400 case studies of products that have been inspired by nature.

FINDSTRUCTURE

Database that supports biomimetic design in general and the structural biomimetic design method.
