Abstract: After a short presentation of ARIZ and mainstream TRIZ software, complementary paradigms for inventive problem solving developed through OTSM are presented. Description of the framework for OTSM computer support is given. A very first prototype of software and an example of its application are also briefly described.

Keywords: theory of inventive problem solving; TRIZ; OTSM; innovation; software; computer-aided innovation; CAI; problem management; general theory of powerful thinking.
