Resolving a contradiction

This model illustrates a contradiction or opposition. A and B are in conflict somehow. For the purposes of this model it does not matter why, or what A or B are. The model shows the ability of Southbeach, not only to model concreate situations (as most of the examples in this blog) but also, abstract solution patterns. In this case, the dotted boxes (meaning 'potential'), show where solutions or compromises can be made. Note how the opposition itself can only be solved using a separation principle. That is part of what TRIZ teaches us. Note also that the opposition itself has a root cause - the contradiction.
