The Holistic Problem

There is yet a central point of access to all the world's manufacturing diversity.

Parts of the Holistic Problem

           Information Technology  
            Design | Materials Science Information Science  
  • What seems the problem?
    • What is the base cause?
    • What happened to cause it? 
    • If action to address the problem is determined the best approach; the balance between the 'meticulous' and the 'creative' begins; to surface a more preferred outcome based on existing knowledge of the past. 
    • The model is never complete and subject to scrutiny. That which does not change, is dead. Over-adaptation shares this same fate. Adequate survives. 
  • What product or outcome is required?
  • Why is something required in the first place?
  • How are novel or specialized processes standardized, modularized, and integrated or rendered cyclical or cradle-to-cradle for simplicity? Or, in other words:
    • How are the fundamentals of manufacturing processes better understood simply as functions, steps, or ingredients, so uncertainty or novelty when encountered becomes an acceptable challenge rather than a protective deterrent?
  • What design is assembled?
    • What is the best way to represent the design for people and machines? (images, words, Braille, python, FLOWS, ect)
  • What tools applying materials are used?
    • How are the most basic tools made to make more specialized tools and vice versa
  • What materials apply to product or tool?
    • How are tools made with what materials?
  • What are the materials needed for the design? (or) 
    • What alternative materials when optimal materials are unavailable?
    • How are materials made from more basic materials?
  • Where are the materials? 
    • How are materials made easy to log and warehouse or locate by anyone?
    • How is it observed at the location to ensure viability?
