Welcome to the TRIZ Effects Database

A gift to the global TRIZ community from Oxford Creativity's TRIZ Expert,
Andrew Martin

The Effects Database provides answers to queries in the form of a list of Effects, i.e. physical phenomena or applications of physical phenomena.

Andrew has spent over 20 years developing and updating the Database in his own time.

As a TRIZ user, teacher and facilitator I hunted for an effects database that had no barriers to use (no signing up, signing in, adverts or invoices) and was also way more comprehensive than any other free-to-use system. It had to be genuinely useful to real-world problem solvers as well as those learning TRIZ. Nothing out there fitted the bill and so, dear reader, I made one.

Why use the Effects Database? 

To support problem solving by answering questions such as:

  • How do I move a liquid?
  • How do I increase temperature?
  • How do I measure pressure?

The Effects Database then provides answers to such queries in the form of a list of Effects, i.e. physical phenomena or applications of physical phenomena.
