Brushing up on toothpaste, WSJ, 3/9/04
If you like lots of choices, you probably love
shopping for toothpaste. Today there are 160
brands on the market according to market
researcher, Information Resources, Inc. Theyre
filled with ingredients said to fight cavities,
control tartar, attack bacteria, whiten teeth,
and freshen breath. You can find herbal and
natural products, along with those for
sensitive teeth, for smokerseven for women only.
A new brand hitting the market this week
contains liquid calcium, which fills in
crevices in the tooths enamel, according to the
products manufacturer. In truth, experts say
that basic toothpaste with fluoride is all that
most of us need.

The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Jacob Goldenberg, Hebrew University
  • Developer of Creative Templates for the
    computer
  • Says people need a road map for shaping their
    creative ideas
  • His templates provide a framework for analytic
    thinking
  • Users first analyze an existing product by
    breaking its functions into relationships that
    are then altered and expanded

57
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Five templates
  • Attribute dependency
  • Component control
  • Replacement
  • Displacement
  • Division

58
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Attribute dependency
  • Considers changing a key variable of a product
  • Example Let wet diapers generate a strong but
    pleasant scent instead of the usual one to let
    parents know that its time for a change

59
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Component control
  • Looks at the way that a products is linked with
    its environment
  • Example Post-It notes might have been this
    templates answer to the question How can memo
    writers link their notes to the place where they
    want them to be seen?

60
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Replacement
  • Substitute part of a product with something from
    the products immediate environment
  • Example A manufacturer trying to reduce the size
    of a cars cellphone speaker could remove the
    units dedicated speaker and use the cars radio
    speaker instead. This removes the extra speaker
    and improves the quality of the sound.

61
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Displacement
  • Improve a products performance by removing an
    intrinsic component
  • Example More than twenty years ago, Sony Corp.
    realized that it could squeeze high quality
    playback into its early Walkmans if it removed
    the recording function

62
The Brainstormer, WSJ, 5/13/02
  • Division
  • Splits one attribute into two
  • Example Separate shampoo from conditioner

63
A vacuum that even a couch-potato could love,
(WSJ, 9/15/02)
  • Robot does floor while you vegetate
  • Roomba Intelligent Floor Vac
  • Price 200
