The main TRIZ postulate is any technical system develops according to objective existing laws, and these laws can be disclosed, identified and used.
I think that we can generalize this postulate into the following: the development of any system obeys the objective laws which can be identified and put into service.

Good effort, Oleks. Keep it up!

The main TRIZ postulate is any technical system develops according to objective existing laws The TRIZ mainly postulates that all technical systems are developed based on the existing objective laws, and that these laws can be disclosed, identified, [comma needed] and used.

I think that we can generalize this postulate into the following: the development of any system obeys the objective laws which can be identified and put into service.

Hi Oleks,

Were you intending to use the word postulate as a verb or noun in the first sentence? https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/postulate 

Good use of following colon usage rule in the second sentence. Great work!

Hi Oleks,

Interesting stuff!

My only issue is with this sentence "I think that we can generalize this postulate into the following".

In English, we don't tend to generalize something INTO something else.

Instead I would say something like "To summarize (US spelling)/summarise (UK spelling) / In general terms, the development of any system must obey/follow the (you are talking about "objective laws in general and not specific, previously mentioned ones) objective laws which can be identified and put into service.

"laws which can be identified and put into service." - Also, in English we tend alk about laws being put into place/effect" ("laws being put into service sounds a bit strange to me)
