9780130082794: Strategies for Creative Problem Solving (2nd Edition)

A Systematic, Proven Approach to Problem Solving–Now Fully Updated with New Examples and Interactive Resources

 

Strategies for Creative Problem Solving, Second Edition, will help you sharpen your “street smarts” and leverage your creative skills to find better solutions for virtually any technical problem. Drawing on advanced, National Science Foundation-funded research, it introduces a start-to-finish problem-solving framework that integrates proven strategies from today’s most effective technical organizations. Using its hands-on techniques and exercises, you’ll learn how to gather data, systematically identify problems, generate superior alternatives, choose and implement the best solution, evaluate what you learn, and use that knowledge to create even better outcomes.

 

The first edition of Strategies for Creative Problem Solving won the prestigious American Society for Engineering Education Meriam/Wiley Distinguished Author Award. This new edition has been systematically updated and revised, offering even greater value to every engineer, technical practitioner, and student. Among its many improvements: 

  • Dozens of new examples, plus two detailed real-world case studies
  • Better, more coherent organization, reflecting feedback from thousands of students and professionals
  • New coverage of team-based problem solving, including conflict resolution
  • More coverage of critical thinking, including the use of the Socratic method
  • An introduction to the powerful TRIZ technique for resolving contradictions
  • Proven troubleshooting algorithms for identifying root causes of equipment and process problems 

All-New CD-ROM and Web Site

 

The CD-ROM and Web site contain numerous enrichment opportunities for both students and instructors including 

  • Interactive Computer Modules: Seven simulations, which are linked to the book’s content and are designed to deepen your expertise with every stage of the problem-solving process.
  • Summary Notes: Chapter-specific material that highlights important points in each chapter–excellent for classroom presentations and concept review.
