What does the Ideal Design approach to problem solving consists of? The ideal design approach consists in dissolving the problems that exist in an system by creating a better system It is a case of Dissolving rather than Solving because the problems inherent in the existing situation disappear with the replacement of that situation, and are replaced with the new realities of the new situation.

Why is the Ideal Design approach to problem solving a correct approach? Or What is the rationale behind it? The ideal design approach is based on the fact that the logic of a problem is not the logic of the solution. By solving a problem , one stays in the logic that created the problem. E.g. solving the problem of disease is focused on getting rid of the disease through medication. But a focus on health as an ideal inspires a different logic, health producing strategies such as nutrition and exercise, which eventually dissolve the disease.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
