Design thinking class (How do I solve problems)

In this short presentation I have tried to describe the process of problems solving currently used in the team (laboratory) I am currently working in. This is the homework of the "design thinkng lab" on-line class done by Stanford University.

Transcript of Design thinking class (How do I solve problems)

How do I solve problems?
I. Problem (task, experiment, expected result, etc...)
Definition (of the problem done by supervisor)
Selection of the appropriate team member (student) able to handle the task
Brief discussion with the executor (usually just for the clarification purposes, and asking-answering initial rough questions)
II. Initial acquaintance with the problem
Literature search
Search of similar problems and the solutions applied
Conventional approaches / standard solutions / state-of-art
III. Idea generation
Due to specificity of work - academic research we need to account several important things
To assure that the solution or certain part of it will be new (never used by other researcher)
While the search for the solution we always have to keep in mind that very expensive ways to the solution are not acceptable. All efforts should be done to avoid the cost of the solution (product, method etc...)
Simplification of the existing solutions can also be the option for the success of the work.
Even novelty is much more important in academic research significant simplification of previous "complex" solutions is also needed.
Idea of the problem solution is presented to the team leader (supervisor)
IV. Discussion stage
Mainly with the team leader (supervisor) but also possible with other team (laboratory) members.
Get rid of the "elders experience"
Obtain final approval for the "prototyping" from the supervisor
V. Prototyping // first feasibility tests
VI. Discussion with supervisor...
VII. Additional tests // optimization of the variables
VIII. Internal presentation of preliminary result. Discussion with supervisor and other team members related and not-related to the project.
IX. Solution
Application of the developed method to the real (initial) problem.
