Ontological reverse engineering is the process of discovering the ontological principles of an object, system or reality through the analysis of its ontological structure, function and operation.
It is a technological approach that becomes necessary when dealing with the nature of problems. It is the basic tool for complex problem solving.
Without being able to deal with the reverse engineering process the nature of problems cannot be approached. This is the real limit of the problems an individual can solve.
