I'm thinking about the notion of "problem solving" as it relates to
designing. I know some people believe strongly in the notion of
problems and solutions; I also know others would disagree.
I have access to literature within engineering on this sort of thing.
What I would be interested in is a few references to documents from
outside engineering, but as close as possible to design generally.
What are the viewpoints on defining things as 'problems' and 'solutions'?
Again, I'm not looking for huge bibliographies. Just a few key (in your
own minds) references to get me started.
