For 20 years, Strategies for Creating Problem Solvinghas helped thousands of them gain these skills. Now, award-winning authors and pioneering engineering educators H. Scott Fogler and Steven E. LeBlanc have updated their classic guide to make it even more relevant and effective. Strategies for Creating Problem Solving, Third Editionoffers a complete framework for strengthening and honing creative problem-solving skills in any technical discipline. It teaches practitioners and students how to: Encounter an ill-defined challenge and systematically identify the "real" problem Generate, compare, choose, and implement solutions Evaluate success, failure, and opportunities for improvement It introduces a proven problem-solving algorithm by presenting a series of graduated exercises intended to familiarize, reinforce, challenge, and stretch readers' creativity throughout the entire problem-solving process. This edition's many improvements include: Expanded, revised and updated examples throughout, including new Fermi examples New material on making the case for change Tighter linkages between problem-solving techniques and real-world applications Even more opportunities to practice, strengthen, and deepen critical thinking and creativity skills The first edition of this book earned ASEE's 1996 Meriam-Wiley Distinguished Author Award.
