  1. 1. Decision Matrix – Rocking Chair Criteria Complexity Development Materials Longevity Sturdiness rockability Time Ideas Totals 3 5 4 1 2 2 201 4 4 4 2 2 2 182 2 3 3 5 5 5 233 1 1 2 4 4 5 174
  2. 2. Scale: The greater, the betterComplexity: 1 most complex, 5 least complex A more complex design will be inefficient to build, whereas a less complicated design isable to be build in must less time.Development Time: 1 most amount of time, 5 least time The less time a product spends on the assembly line, the better. Time is moneyMaterials: 1 most amount of materials, 5 least amount of materials Using less materials would be more environmentally friendly. At the same time, it’sbeing cost effective.Longevity: 1 lasts for a short period of time, 5 lasts for a long period of time Having a long-lasting rocking chair means we have a quality product. Cheap constructionwould result in a product that does not last long driving customers away.Sturdiness: 1 not sturdy, 5 very sturdy Sturdiness will ultimately result in how safe the chair is. Safety is key when you want acustomer to come back.Rockability: 1 not a good rocker, 5 very good rocker A rocking chair with the wrong leg length to rocker diameter ratio would result in a jokeof a rocking chair. By finding the right middle man, that will weed out the dangerous chair withtoo much of a rocker curve as well as the not so rockable chair with a very large rocker diameter 1 2 3 4Complexity Complex Not complex More Most complex complexDevelopment Least time Some time More time Most timetimeMaterials Least Some More Most materials materials materials materialsLongevity Least Short Most Some longevity longevity longevity longevitySturdiness Dangerous Not very Sturdy Very Sturdy sturdyRockability Does not rock rocks Rocks well Rocks very wellEric Thompson, Brian Jestice, Sai Bhalerao, Jarrod Juskiewicz, Lauren Logan
