Abstract:

An algorithm for computing time delays in a distributed decision making system is developed. Starting with a matrix representation of the organizational structure all possible information processing paths are scanned and the time delay associated with each one is computed. When the decision strategies are known, the expected delay of the overall system can be obtained.
