Decision Making Matrix
Design chosen: 2
Design 2(Jerry's Design) is simple and easy to build. This design will consume the least amount of time to manufacture. Accompanying it is the fact that it is light weight and can distribute the load throughout the bridge evenly, hence being able to take on a load several times its weight. As a result, it has thus become the bridge design we are using.
