DEVELOPING GUIDELINES FOR PROBLEM SOLVING
A conceptual framework is proposed to explicitly evaluate the completeness of the guidelines for problem solving, with the aim of a better understanding of existing methodologies. The proposed template is composed of five parts: problem type, Sub-goal, General Suggestion, Specific Suggestion and example. Thanks to a template of comparison, a method can be studied to highlight shortcomings and identify where it can be improved. In this paper, the proposed template has been used to improve the 76 standard solutions, obtaining a simpler and more complete set of guidelines.
