Problem solving

It is an open eneded discipline of study for solving problems in academic or daily life not randomly but systematically and efficiently at low cost using a rich set of abstract tools and techniques.

These powerful tools and techniques are created from experience analysis and abstraction of usable resources spread over many subjects such as Management, Computer Science, Maths and so on. This approach enables us to apply a technique to solve a problem in Maths as efficiently as a complex business problem.

Subcategories

How a real life problem is solved - to buy or not to buy a new washing machine

thumb how a real life problem is solved buy or repair

This was a simple act of domain mapping using abstraction. The nature of fault was generalized to body repair, detaching it from the domain of washing machines. We were now on the lookout for a reliable mechanic in the more general higher layer domain of metal body repair...

Assignment logic problems form an important class of logic analysis problems that are generally found to be difficult. Collapsed column logic analysis technique and framework removes this inherent difficulty with a structured, systematic and efficient approach. In addition to logic puzzles and family relations problems, this powerful technique helps to solve complex reasoning class of floors problems with ease and efficiency as well...

Method based solution to Einstein's logic analysis puzzle, Whose fish

The problem involves one to one unique assignment between six sets of entities each of five members. The assignments and the answer should result in by analyzing 15 logic conditions. This is a quite well developed logic analysis puzzle with challenges. This classic puzzle is attributed to no less a person than Einstein...

How to solve a simple looking problem with a twist, domain mapping

thumb_abstraction-and-domain-mapping-solves-simple-looking-problem-with-a-twist-top

In a problem that looks simple but somehow wrong and violates the commonly known concepts, power of abstraction may often overcome the apparently unknown and uncertain state and helps to reach the elegant solutions. On the way to the solution, usually a higher level rich concept is created the precise form of which was hidden just around the corner...

Principle of disproportion saved us millions this time

thumb_principle of disproportion

All things in nature are in proportions that we accept and have become used to. Mimicking nature we build our things that also follow rough proportional relationships that we are not always explicitly aware. But when such a proportional relationship is violated outright we might feel something is wrong, if we have the principle of disproportion imbued in us.
