There will be differences between discourses, but the guidelines presented here are typical of those encountered in engineering problem solving. Guidelines for Documenting Problem Solutions Within the context of documenting problem solutions, a question that arises is “Who will use the results?” In professional practice, there are several individuals or groups who rely on the results of technical calculations to make decisions. Activities may involve independent reproduction or checking of numerical calculations, verifying assumptions, and making technical and business decisions based on the solution. Thus, the primary objective of problem solution documentation is communication and not a final numerical value .
