My team is trying to be more organized and on time this year, as well as still teach the importance of the design process as it is taught in our school’s PLTW classes. Last year, our team made a last minute decision matrix type document that we went through during our Kickoff meeting. We used that to help decide on the size of our robot, drivetrain, as well as wheel type/size, etc. I was wondering if any other team has created a decision matrix to help with these types of decisions. If so, what do you usually include? I want to try to have this document set up and ready to go before kickoff. I currently have included criteria such as cost, time needed to build/program, team experience, etc. If anyone has any suggestions, or has done this before, id love to hear them.
Yes i have searched CD for this before posting this. I did not find much, and what i did find wasnt particularly helpful. If you have a thread that i may not have seen, feel free to send it.
My PMs are always open, so feel free to contact me that way as well.
