Attribute Dependency -- between attributes vs. within attributes dependency Cycles of dependencies Summary References 59 59 62 62 63 66 71 73 74 75 75 75 5 The Forecasting Matrix Searching for Attribute Dependency Classification of variables The forecasting matrix Forecasting matrix -- analyzing baby ointment Managing the ideation process issues Improving scanning efficiency through heuristics Summary Operational prescription References 76 76 76 78 89 94 96 97 98 98 6 The Replacement Template What is the Replacement Template? Implementation of the Replacement Template Case study 1-- a chair Case study 2 -- a scanner Case study 3 -- butter patties When is exclusion appropriate? Case study 4 -- Nike-Air® ads Case study 5 -- Bally shoe ads Replacement vs. Attribute Dependency Operational prescription References 99 99 104 109 114 116 119 119 122 122 123 123 7 The Displacement Template What is the Displacement Template?
