Item description for DEFINING COMPLEX INTERDISCIPLINARY SOCIETAL PROBLEMS by Dorien J Detombe...
Complex interdisciplinary societal problems include problems such as the fast growth of metropolitan cities in the developing countries, global environmental problems, the AIDS problem, but also problems of the transport of goods and persons, and the communication of data. In all these cases, knowledge and data are often missing, and there is uncertainty as to how the problem is going to develop. In addition, there are often many people and organizations involved. many of these problems are either ill or undefined. Before interventions can be suggested, the problem needs to be defined. This study is a fundamental theoretical approach towards a method for defining these problems: the COMPRAM method. COMPRAM stands for complex problem analyzing method. The method is based on the theory of complex interdisciplinary societal problems, systems theory, and chaos theory. The method supports a co-operative multi- disciplinary team that analyzes the problem. The analysis is assisted by a facilitator. Working on the basis of the theories cited above, the communication among the multi-disciplinary team is supported by a seven layer computer model in which the main phenomena involved in the problem are expresses in different midels, from a verbal description to a system dynamic computer model.
