Identify and apply constraint satisfaction as a way to solve problems.

The overarching goal of this assignment is to identify and apply a systematic method for problem-solving guided by your sophisticated use of the LOs. Choose one of the following topics:Reduction of food waste associated with brunch buffets in the UAEDubai hotel brunches: Food waste becomes a hot issueReducing air PollutionUnited Arab Emirates: Air PollutionSecuring water supply in the Middle EastThe Middle East is running out of waterCultural preservation in the UAEStriking a balance: Preserving local traditions and history while developing new cultural and educational resourcesNote:(1) Make sure to select a tractable sub-topic within these broad topic areas (i.e. you will need to apply #breakitdown iteratively). This will allow for a more effective application of LOs, and a sub-topic is rarely too specific or narrow.(2) The resources linked above are intended to serve as a starting point for your research. You must identify additional readings and sources.Part I: The Method.Clearly summarize your method by identifying the steps you would use to approach your specific sub-problem, including where you would apply specific LOs. Include your systematic method as a flowchart, outline, or list of bulleted points (this should not be a narrative, and should not include any additional content not included in the narrative section below). (Note: Refer to Activity 1 in session 10 for an example of how to outline your strategy).Part II: Application.Apply your systematic method by characterizing and proposing solutions for one of the topics listed. Research and learn about the problem and then apply the Problem Solving LOs to propose solutions. This narrative portion of your assignment should include three sections (900-1100 words):Problem AnalysisSolution AnalysisIdeation and ExecutionNOTES:In this assignment, you must include:At least one application of each of the following LOs: #rightproblem, #breakitdown, #constraintsAt least one application of two of the following LOs: #analogies #heuristics #gapanalysisPlease note your total word count (for Part II) at the end of your assignment.Use appropriate external resources and cite them appropriately in APA format (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/). For this assignment, a rough guide might be at least 5 external, scholarly sources. Literature cited are not included in the word count. We recommend using a citation manager to organize and format citations (for example: Mendeley or Zotero).Optional: Draw attention to your most prominent applications of LOs (especially those mentioned in the “LOs to be graded” section below) by adding footnotes. In the footnote text (at the bottom of the page), provide the hashtag of the LO and a 1-2 sentence explanation of your application. Help the professor understand exactly why this constitutes a strong application. For a given LO, create at most one footnote per page. Click here for an example of this technique. Footnote text does not count toward the target length of the assignment, and all applications of the LO (not just those that are footnoted) will count toward your grade.
