A great way to sharpen our analysis and modeling skills is to continuously address real-world scenarios. A scenario along with its solution appears each month in this Design Challenge column. The scenario is first emailed to more than 1,000 Design Challengers and then all responses, including my own, are consolidated and the best appear in this column. If you would like to become a Design Challenger and submit responses, please add your email address at http://www.stevehoberman.com/designchallenge.htm. If you have a challenge you would like our group to tackle, please email me a description of the scenario at me@stevehoberman.com.

Corine Jansonius's model received the most points (124 points) and, therefore, won the gold medal. My model received 116 points to claim the silver medal. David Hay's model received 108 points to capture the bronze medal. Scores were very close, indicating that many Challengers preferred each of the models.
