  1. Describe briefly a problem or task.
  2. Define the name of the Working tool or medium, for ex.: Working Tool: WATER JET.
  3. The AIG-tool generates automatically 83 ideas and displays them according to the statistical ranking. With three further entries up to 170 solution ideas can be generated:
    for Target object - 30 ideas, for Useful action - 47 ideas, for Harmful effect - 10 ideas.

More features and functions :

  • Selection of easy-to-implement ideas with low to medium abstraction level
  • Selection of ideas according to the underlying solution principle: universal, design, mechanical, acoustic, thermal, chemical, electromagnetic, intermolecular, biological, digital
  • Generating cost-cutting ideas for typical cost drivers: energy and material consumption, manufacturing costs, complexity, maintenance and recycling
  • Selection of strong ideas for eco-innovation and reduction of environmental impact
  • Selection of solution ideas for process optimization, product design and non-technical problems
  • Automatic idea generation for business and management problems
  • Automated innovation concept creation based on best ideas
