I'm looking for a word that would convey the idea of something that adresses a definite problem set and consequently lets you do so without much effort.
Here's an example:
- Hammers are designed to drive nails
- Hammers are consequently very easy to use to achieve that exact purpose
- (And not very good at doing something else)
A small twist: I'm looking for words that emphasize the "designed to" aspect.
appropriate wouldn't be entirely - well - appropriate because it conveys the idea that the tool happens to fit the bill, not that it was designed with the purpose of doing so.
