Engineering Problem Solving Method
Interpersonal everyday problem solving is dependent upon the individual personal motivational and contextual components.One such component is the emotional valence of "real-world" problems and it can either impede or aid problem-solving performance.The next step is to generate possible solutions and evaluate them.
Much of computer science involves designing completely automatic systems that will later solve some specific problem -- systems to accept input data and, in a reasonable amount of time, calculate the correct response or a correct-enough approximation.
Solutions to these problems are usually situation- or context-specific.
The process starts with problem finding and problem shaping, where the problem is discovered and simplified.
Solving problems sometimes involves dealing with pragmatics, the way that context contributes to meaning, and semantics, the interpretation of the problem.
The ability to understand what the goal of the problem is, and what rules could be applied, represents the key to solving the problem.
