Crete a list of possible solutions to the issue.
Before you can develop your own solution, you need to generate possible solutions to explore.
Use your synthesis tree and problem cases to generate possible solutions.
To generate a list of possible solutions:
- crete a document to store your list of possible solutions.
- use synthesis tree -- look at the leaves (bottom edges) of your synthesis tree for plans of action provided by your authors. Add these as possible solutions to your list of solutions.
- use problem cases -- look at each of your problem cases and ask "what might be done to reduce or relieve the situation? Add each of these possible solutions to your list.
