    "composition thought"

    Is "composition thought" meaningful in the following sentence:

    The composition thought of this method is to fully employ exsiting resources in their team to carry out this task and reduce interference from the boss.

    Thanks

    It makes no sense to me. What is the intended meaning?

    Re: "composition thought"

    The intended meaning was to say what is the main idea of using the method and how it will work.

    Thanks

    "Thought" is far too vague. "Composition"? Maybe you meant "The reasons behind the method are composed of several thoughts (goals, aims) ..." But this sounds very sloppy in English.
    How about:
    "The motivation for (using) this method ..."
    "The reasoning behind (using) this method ... "

    Re: "composition thought"

    How about this sentence:

    The motivation for this method is to fully employ existing product design methods and tools to carry out extension, analogy and mutation stimulations, with the idea generation mechanism of conceptual design as theoretical basis, which is shown in the following figure: ...

    Thanks

    It's possible; but the sentence seems too long. And what is shown in the figure? The whole thing?
    How about:
    The motivation for this method is to fully employ existing product design methods and tools to carry out extension, analogy and mutation stimulations. As a theoretical basis, we are using the idea generation mechanism of conceptual design, as shown in the following figure.
    I'm afraid I don't follow the meaning of the whole thing, but I'd definitely try to simplify it in some way.

    The main purpose of this method is to fully employ existing resources in their team in order to carry out this task and reduce interference from the boss.


    The main purpose of this method is to fully employ existing product design methods and tools to carry out extension, analogy and mutation stimulations. Using the idea of generation mechanism of conceptual design as the theoretical basis, the team is empowered to work independently. The following figures show method applications:
