>Topic: Panel on Computer-aided innovation-software that helps you see
>patterns, manage knowledge, think and invent
>Building a knowledge repository-does it aid in collaboration, insight
>generation and speed up the concept to cash life cycle ?Jim Falconer a
>researcher from Nortel (Northern Telecom-Canada's premier research
>establishment) reports on his experiences in building a repository of
>knowledge artifacts and an interactive
>research and collaboration tool for a small consulting department within a
>large communications solutions company. Jim talks about the particular
>challenges faced by a geographically-dispersed knowledge-based enterprise
>like Nortel in constructing and maintaining a corpus of knowledge and
>innovation that is self-sustaining, dynamic and value-rich. The solution
>relies heavily upon the ubiquity, extent and hypertext-based underpinnings
>of the World Wide Web. In addition, all aspects of the inquisitive/
>acquisitive behavior, interaction and knowledge management had to be
>modeled into the solution for it to be both useful and engaging.
>Can software programs help inventors, designers and engineers in creating
>concepts for new inventions? IQ-Plus, a Canadian software company is one of
>the several firms who have released new software based on the creativity
>technique called TRIZ, a
>process originally invented by G.S Altshuller in the 1960's. After it was
>reviewed in the Wall Street Journal and Business Week, the TRIZ process is
>now used by such well-known firms as: Kodak, Ford, Nortel, AMP, IBM, 3M,
>Eli Lilly, Kimberly-Clark, Rand, Motorola, Rockwell, Saab, Xerox and
>others. IQ-Plus software is unique in that it integrates several methods
>including VA, QFD, TRIZ, TOC and the Coller method and others. Victor
>Minin, an engineer, scientist and entrepreneur discusses his 12 years of
>experiences in product innovation and solving engineering problems.
>Come out and hear our experts or order the proceedings. Does it deserve all
