Problem solving techniques

A problem solving technique shows a step by step sure way to solve a problem. It is a less abstract and more realistic way towards solving a problem.

A few examples of problem solving techniques are:

  1. How to find a troubleshooter to solve a grave real life problem,
  2. how to select right medicines in a hurry,
  3. how to take a decision of buy or not to buy,
  4. how to apply change analysis technique,
  5. how to to use base equalization technique,
  6. how to apply domain mapping,
  7. how to apply pattern analysis technique,
  8. how to apply delusion analysis technique,
  9. how to apply simple and complex logic analysis,
  10. how to apply technique of memory indexing and summarization,
  11. how to apply rule-set and deductive reasoning for fault diagnostics,
  12. how to use problem breakdown technique.

Not all the techniques are very novel and innovative. For example, problem breakdown technique is a natural way to solve large problems that many of you have applied.

Among these though a few deserves special mention.

We consider domain mapping technique as one of the most powerful broad-scoped problem solving techniques that can be applied to achieve highly unexpected positive results.

These are all general problem solving techniques to be used in daily lives. Apart from these solving math problems or brain teasers constantly require discovery and application of new problem solving techniques.

As you may guess, there may be a very large number of problem solving techniques that are just waiting to be discovered and used in a given problem situation.

This uncertainty gives rise to the main foundation of problem solving.

True, how little do we know! No I am not talking about the subject of our individual expertise area. I am just observing a fact that being for example an out and out academician when you face the problem of commenting on the price of a prime old property you may feel totally at sea...

Complex logic analysis using problem breakdown and other techniques

thumb complex logic analysis problem breakdown

Logic analysis primarily deals with yes/no variables or questions. The core concept of this approach of limiting the number of final possible outcomes to only two makes this world of yes/no a certain world. Though attractive, logic analysis by itself is of little use in real world problem solving, as most of the parameters and criteria in real world problem solving have inherent subjectivity in them. But we may use logic analysis together with other problem solving resources and deductive reasoning to solve complex problems systematically...
