# Methodological approaches of technovatics

The real problems have many solutions each of them has own advantages over other solutions.

Choice of the best solution requires attraction of additional information related to market needs, with the technological possibilities of production, the terms and the cost of implementing of solution. This is already outside the competence of technovatics.

Technovatics is aimed to detect as many as possible the technical solutions of given problem. Ideally – all field of solutions. However technovatics proceeds from the fact that there is no one universal approach or method that allows you to find the all field of solutions.

Each approach includes several methods that are characteristic for given approach. These methods represent the main content of technonatics.

Phenomenological approach.

Flow analysis.

FMAnalysis (analysis of physical models).

Functional approach.

Element analysis.

Function analysis.

Systemic approach.

Structure analysis.

Hierarchical analysis.

Dialectical approach.

Cause-and-effect analysis.

TCAnalysis (analysis of technical contradictions).

Economical approach.

Cost analysis.

Efficiency analysis.

Axiological approach.

Opportunities analysis.

Needs analysis.

Ervolutional approach.

Evolution analysis.

Revolution analysis.

Each of the basic analytical methods can be seen from three sides:

- from side of objects,

- from side of functions,

- from side of parameters.

According to this, for example, element analysis in depending on the specific problem situations can be used in binding to objects (element-object analysis), and in binding to function (element-function analysis), and in binding to parameters (element-parameter analysis).

Analog.

Natural analogs.

Technical analogs.

Effects.

Physical effects.

Mathematical effects.

Chemical effects.

Biological effects.

Principles.

Single principles.

Complex principles.

Rows of principles.

Psychological approach.

Method of pruning.

Method of chases.

Method of internal vision.

Physiological approach.

Method of walking.

Method of sofa.

Method of sleep.

Neurological approach.

Genetic approach allowing to correct a person’s thinking at the gene level can be one of the intuitive approach also. But in the present conditions this approach is not applicable “here and now” for solvers and therefore not considered in technovatics.

Although intuitive approaches of technovatics are possible to use "here and now" they have different degree of availability for solvers. So there is no point in considering all its basic methods equally. Therefore, within technovatics, first of all, it is advisable to consider and apply only the methods that are related to psychological and physiological approaches.

All of above-listed approaches and methods are basic and are not transform one to another. And all together they represent a kind of "hologram", even part of which (i.e. one approach or one method) can reproduce in general outline all field of solutions of the considered problem. But in this case the quality of this "image" will be much worse than from all "hologram".
