TRIZ , for example — a model devised by Russian inventor Genrich Altshuller — is the original empirically based method, followed by SIT (for "Systematic Inventive Thinking") and a few other updated versions of it. How interesting, by the way, to note that Altshuller was one of the many intellectuals arrested by Stalin, so that TRIZ's inventor himself developed much of his breakthrough approach in a Gulag.
