— The paper shares the research on applying a clustered model Theory Of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) and suggests how this is impactful to industries with a case study sharing from a development practices. The paper also briefly educates how TRIZ and LEAN methodology via Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) has helped to resolve a real industrial case study. What-Why Analysis model is being used in this case study, which gives clear amplification of the importance of solving the problem. The example is mainly an application in industries, identifying and to overcome a long preventive maintenance problems that are costly and redundant.
