The application of TRIZ in IT and programming (TRIZ-RI Skills)
This solution was created during a quest for the ideal - both in terms of management and in terms of TRIZ. The wording of ideal (which corresponds to a spirit and intention which was formulated by Genrikh Altshuller, while creating TRIZ, and which promoted the development) is as follows:
1) Ideal program is program which can be maintained and even improved by a programmer with a lower qualification then the author, and even without author being involved.
2) Ideal program is program which does not require any changes and / or additions to the code if new functionality is added (in fact, for ideal program increasing functionality leads to redusing ammount of code); And all this without any harm to any of its characteristics (for example, perfomance, etc.).
And with programs written so fast and maintained so simply, their creation and maintenance could be entrusted to children. So the adults could spend their time doing great revelations.
This method resolves the contradiction between the secrecy of voting choice and the strict accounting of the every vote.
If there were not the secrecy of the vote, then numerous already existing strict reporting systems (for example, bank’s payments or etc.) could be used for the elections.
Any citizen, listing the symbolic 1 cent payment to the special bank account and getting the receipt about this, thus uses the system in which any fraud impunity virtually impossible (or at least, fraud can not be secret). So even under totalitarian regimes (even in the distant future) the risk of being accused of manipulation with the votes will remain.
But at the same time, any citizen, who carried out his will this way, makes his choice known. The bank account is personal and bank’s wirings are fixed. Although formally banking secrecy exists in any reliable bank, it is precisely the violation of this secrecy any citizen is not able to prevent. Especially, in countries where the manipulation of the ballots is regular.
Now, when any Voter comes to the polling station and gets the ballot, he/she does not tell anyone about his/her choice. When he/she enters the polling booth he/she maintains privacy as well. When he/she puts his/her ballot into the ballot box, he/she also does not create the opportunity for getting information about his/her choice for anyone else. But when he/she does the same with the bank’s payment his/her choice in favor of someone is fixed. It’s trouble point.
Thus, the guaranteed proof of the citizen’s will violates the secrecy of this will at the same time. For creating the reliable voting system, it’s necessary to resolve this contradiction.
The solution of this contradiction is described below.
The author of this material, has for the last 10 years been professionally engaged in PR-consulting in the field of management, has had experience in setting up and implementing company standards in various organizations. This experience proves that: the amount of chronic recurring problems from company to company (independent on the type of activity, turnover, share capital etc.) is "the same" and tends towards a constant value.
This gave rise to the opportunity to write down some core company standards for any company.
After reading this material, please replace underlined examples with your own, and, maybe, You will get core company standards for Your Firm.
