Abstract:

There are many well-defined model-building procedures for experiments. Multi-Attributes Utility Theory MAUT is a practical approach in quantifying a decision makers preferences. MAUT has been used in industrial decision making for several decades. Recently it has been adopted into military applications. NATO school used the MAUT for its asymmetric simulation tools in its Operational Planning Course. Multi-Attributes utility analysis is a useful tool for facilitating good decision making, with its inherent iterative process for refinement. However Multi-Attributes utility analysis is not a tool for justifying a decision nor proving soundness of it.
