Concept Selection: After initial concepts were generated each team member was tasked with creating complete system designs that could be used in a Pugh Diagram. The Pugh Diagram was used to objectively compare and contrast each design in order to narrow down our selection. During the process our team created two new system designs that combined the best power generation, shredder, and grinder ideas. Pugh Diagram
