The TRIZ theory which was invented by Russian scientist Genrich Altshuller provides a systematic methodology for innovative engineering design in place of brainstorming. synectics, analogical thinking, which seeming1y high efficiency are still variations of the trials and errors method. TRIZ theory gives designer the ability to explore design solutions in fields other than his (her) own experience. Among several TRIZ theories, most widely used techniques in engineering field are contradiction theory. Su-Field analysis, physical phenomenon and effect and directed production evolution. which are described in this thesis and its application to conceptual design of high-speed train is performed as a case study of TRIZ theory.
