I'm creating some demos of our software. The opening bit for each one has a simple explanation of what the demo is for. Example:

Task: You need to knit a scarf for your niece for Christmas.
Solution: Use the handy-dandy Knit-O-Matic to knit while you're sleeping.

I have sometimes used the work "Problem" and sometimes "Task". I need to pick one, and I prefer Task. It's more accurate, as I'm not always putting problems into my users' laps, but am just showing them how the software can help them do their tasks more easily or effectively.

But one doesn't have a solution to a task: a task is just something one does. So what word can I use instead of "Solution"? I just can't come up with a work that pairs with Task.

Any ideas?
