Assessment of own product with regard to competitors
In order to be able to compare one’s own product with a competitor’s product in terms of trends, one participant developed the following Microsoft Excel template, which we can share here with all those interested in TRIZ:
Assessment of the CURRENT state of your own product.
This Microsoft Excel template is about the assessment of the CURRENT state of one’s own product with regard to trends in order to derive insights from it. Paul Mehringer from Bosch sent me the first draft of this template, which he used to successfully run his own workshop. We have improved the template a bit and hereby make it available to the TRIZ community. In the template, there is a separate tab for each trend, in which up to five evaluators can assess a product in terms of trend fulfillment. Ideas and insights for the further development of the product can then be derived from this. On the first tab you get an overview, about the assessment of the product including the deviations of the participants..
