Round Robin Ranking (RRR) is a practical problem-solving tool

We all need to make a lot of decisions by choosing and ranking items/options on a daily bases. Sometimes it looks easy but often takes a long time to make the decision. It is not easy to choose one option out of several. It seems paradoxical, but our decision is typically driven by trying to avoid a mistake rather than searching for a bigger benefit. We are more afraid of making a mistake than to not get what we need. Our fear of losing is stronger than the desire to acquire. The difficulty of decision making depends on a chance…

A problem solver is the main roadblock in problem solving processes

Let’s analyze the problem solving process. From our perspective, Functional Modelling (one of the well-known TRIZ tools) is the best way to analyze a system. An additional article describing Functional Modeling (FM) in greater details will be prepared and published later on. For the purpose of this discussion, we are going to provide a very brief explanation of how the Functional Model tool helped me to investigate the problem solving process. At a high level, the principles of FM tool are as follows: All relevant components of a system are mapped and connected with arrows according to an existing functional…
