Decision making criteria

From the beginning of last semester, I had a very broad thesis topic. As time went on my topic became narrower and more specific.  I did many experts to user interviews to help me to get where I am today. Now my thesis provides electricity and communication to city residents after a disaster. These are user needs and personally, would like to accomplished for my thesis.
