House hunting: a structured decision-making approach (Part 1.5)

I am teaching myself to use a new software for structured decision-making.  Of course, I have to use our house hunting experience as a case study during the process.  Below are the hierarchical structures of the seven questions we came out before (and documented in the last post).

First, it is the condensed version with four goals or criteria.

Then there is the expanded structure with the seven measures/indicators.

We have seen about 15 houses in the past three weeks so far, and now we have a much better idea about what we want.  There is only one house that meets all our criteria, although it is still not perfect.  So the house-hunting adventure is ongoing...At the mean time, I am so glad that we are not in a rush to move anywhere ;)
