Problem Solving Solution Template

(without Tables)

© Maplesoft, a division of Waterloo Maple Inc., 2005

 

This task template contains the steps required in problem solving. This can be used as an outline for an overall system solution.

 

 

There are typically four steps in solving a problem:

 

• 

Introduction

• 

System Definition

• 

Model, Analyze, Design, and Test

• 

Visualization and Presentation of the Results

 

Introduction

 

The introduction section consists of the problem definition and background information.

 

Problem Definition

 

Define the problem. What are the goals?

 

Background Information

 

Provide any background information relevant to the problem.

 

System Definition

Initializing... Done

Variables and Parameters

Input Variable Names and Descriptions

 

 

Output Variable Names and Descriptions

 

Parameter Names and Descriptions

 

 

Input and Output Data and Parameter Values

 

The input and output data and the known parameter values can be defined in the document or imported from an external source.

 

Data and Parameters

 

 

External Data Imports

 

 

Model, Analyze, Design, and Test

 

These steps are performed as necessary to solve the problem.

 

Model Formulation and Derivation

 

Define the system model. It can be known or it can be derived as part of the problem.

 

 

Model Analysis

 

Perform system analysis on the given model. For example:

 

• 

Compute parameters of interest (for example, time constant, bandwidth)

• 

Simplify the model structure

• 

Plot system response to input

 

 

Solution Design and Tuning

 

Design components based on the system model. This process can be iterative.

 

 

Simulation and Testing

 

Simulate and test the performance of the system model based on the designed components.

 

 

Visualization and Presentation

 

After the required results have been obtained, they can be used in several ways.

 

Plots and Graphs

 

Generate and export plots and graphs for visualization.

 

 

Interactive Maplets

 

Create Maplets allowing users to interact with and manipulate your problem solution.

 

 

Code Generation

 

Generate code implementing the problem solution in many different programming languages: C, MATLAB®, Java®, Fortran, and Visual Basic®.

 

 

Report Summary and Conclusion
