The work that is described in this report consists of creating a framework for facilitating the use of TRIZ in analysing and solving mono- and co-disciplinary design issues during design of electromechanical products at a large company in the Netherlands. Guidelines have been developed that serve as a strategy for implementation of this framework against the background of (co-disciplinary) design issues. The guidelines are based on interviews with employees from different disciplines and lessons learned from a previous attempt at introducing TRIZ. Both for the development of the framework as well as for the testing thereof intensive case studies were used. As the case studies contain many company proprietary details they cannot be depicted in this article. Consequently the paper will remain focussed on the framework developed
