Abstract: We are drowned in an ocean of problems at work and life. These problems force us to take decisions on a daily basis which are strongly influenced by multitude of factors such as past experience, exposure, cognitive biases, personal relevance, status and age etc. The outcome of decisions affects a multitude of customers and users etc., many of which may be unhappy with the final result. If we have to consider errors in judgment and unreliable decision making, we will find roots in poorly scoping, understanding, defining elaborating and analyzing problems.
We are going through an important technological and organizational change in the workplace. There is a need to:
bridge the gap and focus on engineering science and technical courses integrated with industrial practice and
upgrading engineering curricula to help students transition from a project based to a problem-based learning.
Agenda: * 90 minutes Lecturing on:
– Problem solving
– Root Finding
– Decision making
* 30 minutes Q&A
