I’d like to propose a new term for everyone in engineering and computer science professions to adopt:
— abbreviation for Least Crappy Solution
- A solution or answer that was selected not because it met all requirements but because it was the option that was the least offensive or subject to the least amount of failure.
Lets be honest, it’s a pretty common thing we all talk about and deal with. So lets just coin this term and simplify things. We’re constantly forced to decide between bad options, yet we don’t seem to have a great term for it. You can just say the abbreviation and it will be obvious to all regarding what it’s about.
So lets go ahead and spread the word. LCS means “least crappy solution” and is perfect, or should I say the LCS to referrer to this situation.
