        I think basically its like you have to use the solutions to a problem before it happens, as in some of the links.
        .in other words, use your brain to prevent it from happening in the first place.

        What others think?

            You always confused. Lol.

            It goes like this.

            Step 1 : You state the problem.

            Here it's : You confused

            Step 2 : Ask yourself why the confusion.

            Answer 1 here

            Step 3: Ask why 'answer 1'

            write answer 2

            Repeat step 2 till step 5.

              5 whys can be used to Get to the Root of a Problem Quickly .

              Can be used in troubleshooting, quality improvement and problem solving, but it is best for simple or moderately difficult problems.


              For more complex or critical problems, it can lead you to pursue a single track of enquiry when there could be multiple causes.

                Yes. Almost. It uses counter- measures, rather than solutions to prevent the problem arising again, while a solution just seeks to deal with the situation.

                Counter-measures are more robust, and are more likely to prevent the problem from recurring.

                  am I?

                  problem = I'm confused

                  why = cause I don't get it

                  why I don't get it = cos my brain finds it hard to handle logical data type stuff

                  answer 2

                  cos I don't get it
                  [MENTION=108498]Aj2[/MENTION] it sounds impressive to come up with counter measures but it doesn't work - useless method

                    In my experience of problem solving, Trying to get an answer to "Why" is futile. Most people don't know why.....they answer I don't know and this will go around in circles and keep someone trapped.

                    Solving HOW is more productive.

                    How did you get in this mess?
                    How are you going to get out of this mess?

                      btw guys or should I say ladies. Use what works for. I just put out stuff that's used in the read world on a day to day basis. The technique i mentioned above was developed by the founder of Toyota, Micida Toyoda. Toyota uses it to this day.

                      Aand there are more techniques coming up . Use, modify according to your situation. As long as ya all apply it in your day to day problem solving, it's all good in da hood.

                      Can ya(general ya) dig it suckas. .

                        Exactly so, and it also means doing work efficiently, so less problems - less wasting time.

                        [MENTION=7414]RaNdOm[/MENTION], it is not a waste of time because it is like, prevention is better than cure..

                            my problem: I accidentally ate some chips I shouldn't :(

                            Why?

                            It was an accident!

                            Why? AN ACCIDENT :( Actually not an accident, I just didn't know that the chips were wet, and now I am confused, why? Cause I am worried, why? Cause there might have been saliva? So if there was, then I am prob doomed! Another's saliva! :( EW! Why? I fear that the saliva will affect me! how? Iman wise. Why? Cuz it was a non muslim's saliva! :( unblessed, afaik.

                            May Allah forgive me. Ameen.

                            Did I do it right?

                              D5: Verify Permanent Corrections (PCs) for Problem

                              D6: Define and Implement Corrective Actions

                              D7: Prevent System Problems:
