Balancing the outcomes in systems design

The Carpenter’s Problem as a solution framing tool is quite flexible. It permits a spacious solution space in the shaded area of the graph, that allows for localization and customization for best fit to particular region or geography. For instance, the challenge of designing the most inclusive internet for all the newcomers from emerging economies, […]

Perspective on the Carpenter’s Problem

This is my favourite concept for describing how to cost effectively iterate complex systems solutions within a given set of constraints and conditions. That is, the ideal solution for best fit, can be said to lie in the shaded area as shown in the graph above. This approach to solution framing comes from operations research […]
