Criteria, Constraints, and Prioritizations
Select just one of the sub-problems that you will continue to research further. From your research, determine what criteria need to be met by your solutions for this sub-problem. What are some specifications that scientists, engineers, or local governments are trying to accomplish? Also research some of the constraints that will limit any solution for this sub-problem.
Document all of the criteria and constraints, with descriptions of why these were chosen. For each sub-problem, create a priority list to show the relative importance of the criteria and constraints to get an understanding of what the tradeoffs will be.
What to submit?
- The sub-problem that you will investigate further, and why you chose this over the other sub-problem.
- At least two realistic criteria for the chosen sub-problem and an explanation as to why these criteria should be met for the sub-problem to be considered resolved.
- At least two constraints for the chosen sub-problem that have been known to limit solutions to the sub-problem and an explanation of why these constraints exist.
- Prioritization of the criteria and constraints and an explanation supporting the decisions made based on research. There should be only one priority list that ranks the criteria and constraints together.
