Matrix Decision Time Frame Innovation Coolness Factor Weighting Factors 10 10 5 Option A Team member 1 10 3 4 Team member 2 9 5 4 Ranking 19 8 8 Weighting Factors 190 80 40 Option B Team member 1 8 8 10 Team member 2 9 10 9 Ranking 17 18 19 Weighting Factors 170 180 95 In this case, Option B wins. First of all, you list all of your design options. Then, list all of your restraints across the top. For each constraint, develop a weighting factor. A weighting factor is how important it is. For example, meeting the time constraints is more important than being cool, so it gets a 10. Have each person rank the options on a scale of 1 10 to with 10 being the highest. In other words, if it is very feasible (you know you will finish it for sure) to get Option A done in the semester, it would receive a score of 10. If you are 80% sure that Option B would be completed, you score as an 8. Repeat the scoring system for each criteria. Then, add all of the rankings. Multiply the rankings times the weighting factor.
