Towards Agile Industrial Problem Solving
Improvement of Problem Solving methods thanks to the integration of agile concepts
By Valentina Maria Llamas
Existing problem solving methods are applied, in most of the cases, like off-the-shelf solutions regardless of the nature of problems to be solved, the context that surrounds it and the level of skills and evidence available to eradicate it. In addition, a lack of flexibility to dynamically adjust the solving process workflow to fit with more complex, dynamic, networked, highly changing and uncertain contexts and problems is been observed during the application of these methods in industry. Our purpose is to provide an alternative to current problem solving technics by introducing more dynamic, incremental and flexible technics in a way such that processes and tools can be tailored to each problem context.
