Abstract:

As operators become dependent on systems for decision support, their decisions may be susceptible to order effects which may result in over-weighting of prior or recent information. The question this research seeks to answer is Does the theory of anchoring adjusting on average accurately predict the results of a long series of sequentially presented information when complexity and sequencing are manipulated
