Repair or Replacement of Non-working Street Lights The repair or replacement of non-working street lights in several areas of the city has caused hazardous driving conditions due to low visibility. The city has decided to make the repair and replacement of these lights a priority. Identifying the problem: Although the city has already stated that nonworking street lights has the culprit to the problem the real problem is low visibility. At what level of light output is conditions considered acceptable; for instance is a 1000 watt bulb considered adequate for 500 feet of road? Is this acceptable for all roads? Is a residential area roads need different lighting requirements as a highway or what about historic areas that want to maintain…show more content…
In solving a problem as an algorithm you may need still need to answer heuristic questions such as what is considered adequate lighting, with no data to compare one must just say yes I can see better with a 1000 watt bulb than a 500 watt. Although I’m sure there is data that supports an accident reduction after achieving certain lighting result all the assumed data in this paper is fiction. It might be assumed from the above statement that I would believe that more steps need to be added, however I do believe that the steps are sufficient, possibly the only step I could add is a reevaluation step, but I believe the achieved by testing the results step. I eluded early in the paper that the putting the step by step before selecting the best solution could be argued however if you look at the steps more as a process, willing to revisit prior steps, than each step having to completed before the other this is
