The morphological chart is based on an analysis approach: the problem is divided into smaller units. For each subproblem potential subsolutions are developed, which are combined to create an entirely new solution

Typical Sequence

  1. List the attributes of the problem
  2. Below each attribute, brainstorm as many alternates as you can think of
  3. When completed, make many random runs through the alternates, picking up a different one from each column and assembling the combinations into entirely new forms of your original subject
