Weighted Matrix

Add to like list
  • Description

    A Weighted Matrix helps a team to identify and prioritize the most important criteria of a product or service for common decision-making.

    Short Instruction

    1. List the different evaluation criteria for a product or service

    2. For each criterion, create a list of design options that could fulfill the evaluation criterion

    3. Assign a weight factor to each criterion based on its importance

    4. Construct a two-dimensional table (with the design options as rows and the design criteria as columns)

    5. Calculate the weighted scores for each design option

    6. Evaluate each option and come to a common decision
