Southbeach Modeller

Improve Everything Always

Visualise, clarify, improve, create

Welcome to Southbeach

A unique visual modeling style oriented to any innovation, design or problem solving project, in any business or industry sector, including engineering and science projects.

Based on the idea that everything that exists or that can be imagined, even the air we breathe, is both useful and harmful from someone's perspective. Think of a fish out of water!

Where spreadsheet programs use simple formulae to perform calculations, Southbeach uses creativity rules to generate directions for innovation, transformation and change. Southbeach diagrams come to life, suggesting their own improvements. Model goals and risks, issues, choices and actions.

A tool for the many faces of innovation. Our software is used to improve or radically transform existing products, processes, systems and organizations. Also model abstract ideas, strategies, policies and legal systems.

Decompose 'as is' situations or 'current' designs into their useful and harmful elements; by structure, time, customer perspective, stakeholder ... or any other dimension relevant to your project, and to any degree of detail. Now generate 'to be' ideas.

Why a new modelling tool?

Southbeach is radically different from mind mapping or concept mapping software.

The notation, with built-in rules engine, lets users apply problem-solving methods they already know, as well as to teach themselves about TRIZ.
