Axiomatic Formulation of Problem Structuring? Methods to Principles

Mike Yearworth, Leroy A White

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


From reviewing engineering practice there appears evidence of possible widespread use of non-codified problem structuring. We review these practices with the view to assimilate the learning back into the problem structuring community and of benefit to both engineering and PSM/management communities. We attempt to re-interpret PSMs into an axiomatic formulation, thus presenting a set of problem structuring principles, which would fit well with engineering pragmatics and possibly encourage wider use of problem structuring. We explore the opportunities and apprehensions that this might present.
