Humphrey “It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It’s that they can’t see the problem.” – Gilbert K. Chesterton “The mere formulation of a problem is far more important than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills.” – Albert Einstein “The way we see the problem is the problem.” – Stephen Covey … important to have a defined design procedure to find good solutions Engineering Education Understanding the Problem – Why Such a Fuss? Designing the wrong product is costly 80% of time-to-market delays due to poor product definition Cost of late to market > being over cost or having less than optimal performance Finding the “right” problem to be solved can be difficult Creeping specifications Engineering Education Phase 1: Problem Definition • Revised problem statement • List of objectives • Metrics • List of constraints Client’s statement P...
