PRoblem solving

Anyone have info on the "toshira" (sp?) problem solving process?

I was asked today. phonetically to - sheer - a if I heard it right, used in Japanese companies.
I'm interested too...

Toshira...? I have heard something similar, but don't know what it is. Anyway, I'm interested in anything concerning problem solving.

I'm getting a book on it today. I'll let you know the spelling and underlying concepts.
Great minds....

...Think alike..

Nitin, I just did exactly that... :agree:

and Laura. I'll await your comments then...

Thank's both of you.

Is this real?

You guys (He says in a non-gender specific manner) must be nuts! I tried the search and I'm not sure I could read the titles, let alone the material. It sounds to me like this is almost exclusively mathamatics, and like the simple country boy I am, If I have to take off my shoes to count I'm in trouble.

I did the google search too. I haven't given up yet, but it looked like alot of papers by various Toshira's that solved problems and their project was written up. I may have the name wrong. I was hoping it was a known process like 6S, or something being used in Japan.

I'll let you know what I find out.

Not Really Sure

What I have seen is it looks like going back to the old Boolean Algebra - Logic flows.


That's what I thought

Yeah, that's what I thought. The two subjects I have always failed; algebra and logic!

Me too! I have read about TRIZ and Kepner-Tregoe, but toshira is a new one on me.
