A Field Guide To Problem Solving and Technical Writing

How to make this book

ISBN: 978-1-5323-1791-0
By: Mitts, Charles


A problem worth solving is a problem whose solution deserves sharing. The extent and volume of human knowledge is too great; even when divided into the sciences, technologies, various areas of engineering, and math, for anyone to individually master. This is why the Seven Step Problem-Solving Process (7SPSP) is such an important “tool”. This process works because it leads into the content necessary to answer the three questions at the heart of every problem: why, how, and what? And, because the seven step process aligns with the components of an APA formatted technical manuscript, when the problem solution is finally discovered or created, the content of a technical manuscript has already been generated. This is the purpose of A Field Guide.
