Design of Decision-Aiding System

  • Ayleen D. Wisudha


In this chapter, I will concentrate on describing the role of computerized decision-aiding systems within a decision analytic process, proposing guidelines for designing decision aids, and outlining decision-aiding procedures that may be enhanced by the use of automated systems. I will not attempt to provide a comprehensive review of decision-aiding systems. However, a number will be mentioned for the purpose of illustrating specific functions within such systems. Furthermore, the chapter assumes familiarity with concepts in decision theory and the underlying methods of decision analysis. For background references, readers new to this area are referred to Raiffa (1968), Schlaifer (1969), Brown, Kahr, and Peterson (1974), and Keeney and Raiffa (1976).
