I'm looking for a word which means that my current solution is a refined version of my previous one, but it is also a combination of my previous idea and a 2nd idea. I found the following question, but it still isn't the word that I'm looking for.

A word that means that when two elements are mixed they become stronger

    Your idea is a synthesis of two previous ideas. That sounds much like your intended meaning. Nov 20, 2014 at 21:37
  • Some REVISIONS can result in something stronger, too, but not necessarily. I think @Cerberus is spot-on with SYNTHESIS, however. Nov 21, 2014 at 0:23
  • @cerberus..+1 for SYNTHESIS. Why not make it an answer..it fits in perfectly.

I also am partial to @Cerberus's choice of synthesis, but offer a few alternatives:

integration, composite, unification, blend, amalgam
