To address the issue that traditional and single design methods cannot resolve modern conflict problems quickly and effectively, which have become increasingly complex, we propose a new method for analysis and resolution of conflict based on integrating the extension and TRIZ methods. First, we summarize research on integrating the extension and TRIZ methods and then we analyze and build models for their transformation. In this way we can unite the strict reasoning ability of the extension method with the abundant practical experience of TRIZ to resolve conflict problems. To verify the correctness and feasibility of the proposed method, we apply it to the problem of reducing the noise of a screw compressor.
