Considering one of the objectives of product design, which is to generate as many alternative solutions as possible in order to be able to select those which are truly the best, it makes sense to look for additional methods that will enable the generation of alternative solutions. It is believed that knowledge twisting supports this objective. Knowledge twisting is a kind of manipulation of Physics P/Structure S/Design D (as mental objects) in order to achieve new Function(s) F . It is believed that awareness of the existence of alternative concepts for generating solutions will contribute to the search for straightforward methods for their implementation.
