In Chapter 1 and throughout this book, I have distinguished between well-structured problems and ill-structured problems. As described in Chapter 1, well-structured problems are those for which correct answers and solution methods have been identified. For each kind of well-structured problem, there exists a constrained problem schema (see Chapter 15) that describes the kind of problem, the elements comprising the problem, their interrelationships, and solution processes. That is, well-structured problems are interpreted and applied fairly consistently.
