The TRIZ Matrix is a tool that brings together 40 known principles for overcoming contradictions. Contradictions are situations where the improvement of one characteristic leads to the deterioration of another characteristic. For example, for an object to be longer without being heavier, a contradiction must be resolved. The characteristic to be improved is the length of the static object and the characteristic to be preserved is the mass of the static object. The TRIZ matrix makes it possible to find the principles that can resolve this contradiction.
