Posted:For my uni work i have to take a non-trivial decision making process and prepare a logic circuit which represents the decision making rules. I have to use a minimum of three different gates (and, or and not for example).

The thing is - i'm finding it really really difficult to decide upon the process i'm gonna model. i don't know why but everything i seem to think of is either too simple or just crap. frown

i think i'm gonna need at least three inputs and maybe two or more outputs.

Can anyone think of any non-trivial decision making processes that could fit into the criteria. i.e. can be modelled using three different gates.

Please only respond to this sensibly and with constructive comments and help.

looking forward to the suggestions....

Posted:no. This is for a computing degree and it's just the logic rules behind a decision. Any decision that a computer could make.

Posted:not entirely sure how sensible this is, but what about wanting a cuppa? the whole if you want one, what sort, how many sugars etc?

may be too trivial, though.

how non trivial must it be?

Posted:surely if you want to impress them you should just use NOR gates as every other type of gate can be made up from these (i pretty sure, it has been awhile since i did that stuff) . . and then just show how an AND gate can be made from NOR's or is that just too geeky
