Abstract:

The specific objectives of the research described are 1 to determine whether decision analysis can be used to structure and analyze decisions of concern to task force commanders, 2 to identify those procedures that are most successful in developing structural decision models, and 3 to develop a protocol for using decision analysis procedures to structure task force decisions. Two experimental applications of decision analysis to a realistic task force decision environment are described. Problems with current task force decision-making methods are identified and suggestions for improvement are presented. A successful structuring process is described at three levels of detail. Implications of the research for the computer implementation of a decision aiding system for task force commanders are presented. Author
