There are different types of problem statements - for example, emails may include problem statements that indicate that a message didn't make it to its destination. In the case, the format will be a simple, one-sentence error message that may contain some technical details about the problem that occurred (such as server failure, a bad email address, and so on). For other types of problem statements, there is really no specific, orthodox format - in a nutshell, problems should be concisely explained, in business-like terms, and then problem statements should be added to business reports, evaluations, or other documents. The more formal a document is, the more formal a problem statement should be.

  • Other problem statements

A problem statement may also appear on a bill or payment system - if a payment doesn't go through due to an expired credit card or insufficient funds, a simple message detailing the problem (or directing the payee to contact the business for more information) will be posted where only an official accountholder can see it.

  • Statements indicate issues

These types of problem statements are common with online banking or PayPal payment systems; however, they may also be used with old-fashioned, snail mail banking statements and other business documents. Problem statements let a client know that there is an issue that needs to be addressed - online, these warnings or bulletins may be immediate; with snail mail, a letter could take a while to arrive, so the person may not know they are having a problem with their account.

To write a great problem statement, practise outlining a specific problem or issue within a sentence or two; keep paring down the sentence(s) until it's as brief as possible. The art of editing will help you to create a really effective problem statement that doesn't have a lot of wordy extras. The goal of writing a problem statement is to give another person a quick and complete reckoning of the event.
