Instead of looking at problems in terms of right-and-left solutions engineers tend to attack problems with the goal of finding the most elegant solution. It involves listening to all sides of the story, creating a list of possible solutions, some analytical work (maybe design of experiments), generate a cost-benefit-risk analysis (failure mode effect analysis), and selecting the solution or solutions that are most likely to be successful while minimizing risk and cost.
Could the use of these well understood engineering tools be used to solve some of the problems identified in this Forum?
Are there any engineers here?
