We don’t have time for this.” (Excess Certainty – blocks creativity) Phase 1 – Defining the Problem In Defining the Problem, we need: • A clear “target” BUT We also need: • Enough “Open End” to allow unique solutions. Phase 2 – Formulating Solutions Centers on: • Systematically exploring and evaluating alternatives in relation to the design problem We typically: • Identify as many alternatives as possible • Assess “pros” and “cons” • Make “Tradeoffs” between design parameters • Select Potential Solutions In this phase we have gone from a defined question to a possible solution. Likely either goes: • Back to Start of this Phase, or • Back to Redefinition of the Problem We need skills and tools: • To evaluate our designs efficiently and systematically. • To determine what kind of data we need. • To determine what type of analyses we do to demonstrate our solution solves the problem....
