COMPRAM stands for Complex Problem Handling Method, a methodology specially developed to handle complex societal problems. During these years she elaborated and refined the methodology . The COMPRAM methodology  can be used to handle major complex societal problems like the BSE problem in the food industry, the healthcare problem AIDS (Africa, Asia), SARS, the Flood problem in the Netherlands, Canada, China, Complex Traffic Problems and Spatial problems in crowded areas.
