Difficult problems and creative solutions
by Steven H. Kim
International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 2, No. 3, 1989

Abstract: Problems may be characterised by three dimensions: domain, difficulty and effort. The domain refers to the area of application, the difficulty to the level of conceptual challenge required, and effort to the magnitude of the work required to implement a solution. This paper explores the nature of difficult problems in various domains, as well as techniques for addressing them. A case is presented for the ways in which advances in hardware and software technologies may be harnessed to develop a creativity support system which can assist decision-making of the highest calibre.
