Usually we are lacking in common sense when the problem is complex and/or very important for us. In this case we engage special tools for problem solving in addition to common sense (if we can not break a stick without a hand's turn, but we have to break it, then better to use axe).
Applied System Analysis is a kit of tools specially designed for problem solving and a well-structured methodology on their practical usage. Applied System Analysis allows us to turn problem solving into a "technological process", with clear defined consequence and content of operations.
"almaGRID" is a software environment for such a technological process.
