Example: A book for child that made of cloth, but not paper What improvement can I make by the substitution? What happens if I change for that? How can the following items be substituted? e.g. Place, Time, Materials, People C Combine Try to combine 2 or more parts of your product to become a different product/process to enhance the synergy Example: Vanilla Coca-Cola What materials, features, processes, people, products or components can I use for combination? Where can I build the synergy? A Adapt Consider which parts of the product/process could be adapted or change the nature of the product/process by adapting someone elses idea What could I change for part of the product? What could I exchange? What else is like this? What could I copy? What different contexts can I put my concept in? M Modify/ Distort Try to find out which parts of your product or the entire current situation can be changed, or to distort the whole thing unusually If I warp or exaggerate a feature or component, what changes would I bring to the product?
