Abstract: Nowadays the concept of product development arrived in the phase in which activities are oriented to prediction through rigorous planning of the activities. Furthermore, related activities’ parameters and indicators are predicted in order to precisely estimate their future state. All the debates during meetings and brainstorming sessions, during the product development process, are concerned with the future product result. In the project team, the engineering approach is applied based on the integrated system defined by people, equipment, tools and materials, but which are inter-related in a present moment. Actual corporations’ processes are strongly based in planning and prediction of their outcomes. Therefore, a need to adapt the actual predictive methodologies, by creating a new approach of how to apply TRIZ and other methodologies has raised. In this sense, the new tendencies of using and applying the cloud concept in manufacturing or product development have imposed the transition from the predictive to the adaptive concept. The aim of this research is to use TRIZ methodology combined with other methodologies (e.g. Agile, PMP, etc.), in order to create a new approach based on adaptability (adaptive process). The passing from the predictive to the adaptive concept, assumes a closer collaboration between project team members, which have to collaborate also, with other actors as suppliers and customers.
