Complex logic analysis using problem breakdown and other techniques

thumb complex logic analysis problem breakdown

Logic analysis primarily deals with yes/no variables or questions. The core concept of this approach of limiting the number of final possible outcomes to only two makes this world of yes/no a certain world. Though attractive, logic analysis by itself is of little use in real world problem solving, as most of the parameters and criteria in real world problem solving have inherent subjectivity in them. But we may use logic analysis together with other problem solving resources and deductive reasoning to solve complex problems systematically...

Simple Logic analysis

thumb logic analysis technique

We frequently use the term ‘logic’. People who use logic to back up their comments, decisions or actions are considered as logical. Sometimes this term is interchangeably used with the term ‘rational’. People who do not behave or act according to commonly accepted norms are termed as irrational. Human beings do not always follow stringent logic. Nevertheless ‘logic’ is a well-defined technical term; there is nothing vague in ‘logic’...

Pattern recognition and use in real life problem solving

thumb pattern recognition technique

Patterns form the basis of comprehension and action for all living things in nature. Patterns are all around us - from human fingerprints, zebra crossings, warm current flows in oceans to the beautiful arrangement of a rose bud. A baby starts to recognize the objects around it, learns how to react on events or how to speak - all by identifying patterns. As we grow up, pattern recognition and its use remains to be one of the most valuable components in our problem solving ability set...
