Presenter

Mr Daid Knott

David (CEng FIMechE) worked for Rolls-Royce plc for 39 years where he became a Senior Manager responsible for Research and Technology within Design Systems Engineering. For the last 18 years he has been leading a global network of multi-disciplinary specialists, researchers and developers, in academia and industry, developing software tools and processes to improve the Engineering Design process used globally within Rolls-Royce.

David is a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, who loves creative problem solving, and has generated 28 patent applications. As a Design Team Leader on the Trent Gas Turbine Engine he generated two patents that became “High Value Patent Award Winners” at the Rolls-Royce “Chairman’s Awards for Technical Innovation”.

He first came across TRIZ over 20 years ago, and he immediately saw its power when he applied it to solve a difficult engineering problem his team was facing, generating a patent in the process. He subsequently championed TRIZ within Rolls-Royce, as part of a Holistic Innovation Strategy. He has facilitated a wide range of TRIZ problem solving workshops, and trained over 450 engineers and MSc Students in the TRIZ methodology.
