Abstract:

This research uses multi-attribute utility theory MAUT to define a mathematical representation of a decision makers utility associated with a satellite system. While developing the survey instrument, we focused on making it simpler to administer, primarily by eliminating the use of lottery questions. These simplifications enabled us to shorten our interview with the decision maker to under two hours for a rather complex model.
