Michael Jackson's Problem Frames are a highly promising approach to early life-cycle software engineering. Their focus moves the engineer back to the problem to be solved rather than forward to the software and solving a poorly defined problem. By applying the Problem Frames approach, the software engineer can understand the problem context and how it is to be affected by the proposed software, and ultimately work towards the right solution for the problem. The influence of the Problem Frames approach and related work is spreading in the fields of domain modelling, business process modelling, requirements engineering, software architecture as well as software engineering in general.
