Hi Eric,

thanks for your answer.  I guess drawers in general are the solution to
my problems because then I can associate text to a specific headline.  I
introduced a DESCRIPTION drawer that includes the description of my
problem/task and I log the solution or outcome into the LOGBOOK drawer
when setting the state to DONE.  The drawer names are of course
arbitrary.  I also tried to use a single LOGBOOK drawer but Org mode
always adds notes at the top in the respective drawer.  I guess this is
fine in general but not expected behavior in this setting, that's why I
use two of them.
