Decision Matrix

Very likely, by now you will be making a decision on which Design Situation to choose from.

Some suggested criteria / attributes for selecting your best Design Needs and Opportunities (Design Situation) to work on for the next few months. Pay attention to what you have selected for yourself to work on. In the original post I simply suggested using the PMI acronym as criteria. Email me if you have more criterion to add on or comments.

Another point to note: If you have great issues with including weightage in your matrix computation, you have two choices: 1) Go study how you can meaningfully include weightage in your matrix computation and then include it in your decision matrix, or 2) use a Decision Matrix table without weightage. You will still be able to arrive at one Design Situation with the highest score with every criteria just as important as the others.

Here you go. You don't have to agree or use, but here are some suggestions:

Interesting Problem?
(Think: Is it an interesting problem to solve? How interesting is this situation / problem to you?)

Good Problem?
(Think: Is it a good problem to solve? In your opinion what do you think? Maybe a quick survey from your friends to see if they think it is a good problem to solve.)

(Think: Who will benefit from a solution to this problem? Will it be useful or beneficial for most people? How many?)

Realisation Possibility.
(Think: Would I be able to make it? This criterion requires some prediction or imagination of a possible solution to the problem and requires you to think about your current ability, as well as the tools and machineries available in the school workshop to realise this possible solution.

Meet ‘???’ theme?

(Think: How well does the situation / problem identified fit the theme ‘??????)?
