8) Analogy In designing a new article, consider comparing by analogy its use with that of another article. For example, when designing a new vacuum cleaner, compare its use with that of a lawn mower. Or in considering methods of securing a house, compare it with securing a car.

It is also believed that 'generic' solutions can be found.

People may make a decision because the act is risky, safe or neutral (depending on the personality) rather than considering the decision itself. For example, a manager should develop product A because it would do his company well. He may, however, choose product B because it would hinder a rival company which he dislikes. A whole range of other personal factors can also affect judgement. Cognitive ability, motivation, personal goals (physical, biological, social, cultural), the person's role and the objectives of the decision.
