PROBLEM FINDING: In problem finding stage we are about to obtain different perspectives regarding the product and that is by using analytical techniques like , laddering technique which is first used by Richards .This method provides a listing from general to more specific by moving downwards, the second method used for problem finding is called concept fan by Edward de Bono , concept fan is a great technique, it divides the approach of thinking into four levels named purpose, directions, concepts and ideas, thus it provides a broad view of thinking by moving among these four levels of thinking.

I.

Laddering Technique: As it is shown on the illustrating chart below that we moved from the general

statement which was Products down to more specific categories tracking our product Watch. Laddering technique is indeed powerful tool because of the advantage it offers of linking the ideas to be evaluated in the following stages of this documentation.

PURPOSE

DIRECTION

CONCEPT

IDEAS

These four segments are used to draw a clear guide line for the approach used to list all ideas in accordance to their concept and all concepts to their Direction as well as all directions to their purpose.

Creative & Innovation Individual Assignment Idea Generation: Within this stage we are going to spin thoughts together to come up with new ideas using some techniques like Mind Map, Lotus Blossom, attribute listing, SCAMPER and force fitting trigger. Idea generation stage is essential too, because it links all the ideas together in a sequence that maybe referenced later on to justify or identify the importance of different aspects of the product.

I.

Mind Mapping Technique: Mind mapping is a way of making notes using colors and patterns, keywords and

images so that the information is rendered holistically. When we are creating Mind Maps, imagination and creativity are used to synthesize logically all the relevant key information in an organized way. Mind Mapping taps your whole brain, releases your brain potential and improves your memory with less work. Since our assignment is needs to be evaluate this technique to improve the ideas for this product.

Creative & Innovation Individual Assignment Scamper: SCAMPER is an acronym for useful list of words that can be applied as stimuli to make you think differently about the problem area. It works by providing a list of active verbs that you associate with your problem and hence create ideas. As they are all verbs, they are about doing, and so get you to think about action. SCAMPER was defined by Robert Eberle, after an initial list from Brainstorming originator Alex Osborn. S C A M P E R Substitute Combine Adapt Modify Put in other use Eliminate Reverse

For Bluetooth watch, combine, substitute, Put in use, and adapt are used to generate new ideas or to enhance existing ideas. C: combine many desired feature to gain more satisfaction and those features is, Bluetooth watch connecting with different techniques such as GPS and cell phone. S: substitute the material used with other to reduce its weight. P: can be used as MP3 player and radio listing. A: adapt voice recognition system to be used with the voice commander.

After setting this table up we are supposed to make three word combinations of the words selected from the table.

Three Words Combination Direction + Signals + Racers Map + Channels + Track Information + Buttons

Outcome GPS gives Signal directions to racers through voice. Channels display the map of the track. Information buttons are beneficial.

CONCLUSION: Among those three combinations, the first one is considered to be relevant to Bluetooth watch since it needs GPS signals to give direction to the rider of the motorbikes. The second one is dealing with map, track and channels which are also related to Bluetooth watch in terms of showing the rider the map of the tracks they are using. The third one is consisting information, buttons, and motorcycles which are related to Bluetooth watch too.

Creative & Innovation Individual Assignment II.Force Field Analysis:

This technique enables us to look at the restricting factors and the supporting factors in a way that we will be given a chance to evaluate the current state of the product by checking the net total of the numbers assigned to each restricting and supporting factors. In order to foster the relevant state of the product we are given a chance to make suggestions regarding the factors to manipulate the degree of restriction or to boost the degree to which the factors supporting.

1. The price is not affordable. 2. Sensitive.

Net Total = +3

The FFA above results imbalance in the net total and it is indicated by positive three which means that the supporting factors dominates the restricting factors. Therefore, in such case, we are supposed to make some suggesting in order, to enhance the imbalance of the relevant factors and those suggestions are made as follows:

SUGGETION:  It is true that the price is high and I do not have a satisfactory remedy to reduce it so to maintain my honesty towards this product I shall keep it (-4) as it is( well this might be considered as a differentiation advantage from other assignments).  The watch has many technologies inside it so combining these technologies together in one product such as watch would be sensitive. Watch is usually exhibition for the fall. In this situation I can use a better material for the watch to protect it more than before. So the factor is supposed to be (-3) instead of (-5).  Using many technologies in the watch may cause a problem for the any, because it So what I can do is whether to reduce the technology is used or to make it easier for the user to use these technologies without doing so many things by controlling them with voice and then the factor will be (-2) instead of (-4).

APIIT UCTI Level 2

Page 27

Creative & Innovation Individual Assignment  In case of the paint color, there is a link between the color of the watch and accidents. I have painted the watch with the right paint, thats why I gave it (+4). Working out on these suggestions will yield to change conversely the net total of the FFA that we have been through, at the beginning.

1. The price is not affordable. 2. Sensitive. 3. Large number of technologies. 4. Quality.
