Altsuller’s Contradiction Matrix (ACM) prescribes a number of inventive principles to resolve the contention between a pair of contending parameters. ACM is considered a classic technique for inventive problem solving.

A fuzzy algorithm was developed to make the ACM expert system accommodate subjectivity in measurable terms. It can deduce prescriptions for more than one pair of contending parameters. It emulates a table look-up manual search for features with common prescriptions. The method involves the selection of fuzzy compositions that are most appropriate in order to emulate the manual method of search and inference.
