Chapter 2. Technical Problem Solving > Resolution and Synthesis

Resolution and Synthesis

Throughout the problem-solving process, problem solvers have to make decisions—decisions about the nature and scope of the problem, about research design and methods of collecting data, and about what the data collected actually mean, given the problem as defined. But it is in the resolution and synthesis stage that decisions must be made about what may or ultimately will solve the problem. These decisions mean that the significance of the analysis of the preceding stage must be determined, as well as whether that significance suggests a solution or solutions to the problem.

Decisions also have to be made about how reasonable the solutions are and why some are more reasonable than others. In other words, what are the general advantages and disadvantages of any one of the possible solutions? n answer to this question involves general assessments of costs and time and the final effect of the solution in light of expected or possible results.
