How bad is that title? Acronym overload! Put that aside for a moment and let’s look at DARPEC.
It’s a tool that is featured in a book called, “The Idea Generator” with a subtitle, “15 clever thinking tools to create winning ideas quickly”.
It’s a tool or approach you can use to “understand how every interaction has six generic aspects” and how you can deconstruct any challenge or situation by deconstructing the six aspects individually.
DARPEC stands for:
D – Deliverer
A – Action
R – Recipient
P – Process
E – Environment
C – Constraints  
For each issue or situation, we are trying to resolve, there is a Deliverer, who performs an Action for the benefit of a Recipient using a Process in an Environment under certain Constraints.
