Assistance in Decision Making: Decision Help and Decision Analysis
2001 (English)In: Proceedings Sixth International Command and Control Research and Technology Symposium, 2001Conference paper (Refereed)
Decision help and decision analysis are tools that will be of importance indecision support systems. They are likely to exist both in real operationalsystems and in simulation based systems used for training. In command andcontrol an example of a decision task is to command units in a geographicalenvironment. We have taken a closer look at this type of decision task, usinga simulated microworld as a research tool. In particular we are interested inthe case when the decision maker already has selected a course of action,but wants to have critique and suggestions of improvements. To analyze adecision where the “main direction” is already known in this way we denotedecision analysis, as opposed to decision help.An algorithm for decision analysis in maps has been developed. Thisalgorithm is based on rules. An implementation in Java with classes suitedfor reuse has been developed. The implementation has been tested in a microworldsystem, C3FIRE, suited for practice in forest fire fighting.
