Choosing an EDP Project Using a Decision Matrix (2 of 4)

by

Introduction

This set of Lessons and Activities serve as the introduction and implementation to any large scale CTE project. Even though electric vehicles serve as the example for which these lessons are designed, please realize this model will work for most projects.

This lesson introduces the use of a Decision Matrix in selecting key design components for large scale CTE projects.
