    In finding a solution to a problem, one comes up with a list of alternatives. These are possible solutions to a problem at hand. The list of alternatives is evaluated through a hierarchy of criteria to ensure that there is a strong basis of determining alternatives that do not meet minimum requirements and therefore should be ...
