Decisions usually are made under conditions of uncertainty. The future is not known and sometimes even the past is suspect. This guide opens the door for business owners and managers to learn about the variety of techniques which can be used to improve decision making in a world of uncertainty, change, and uncontrollable circumstances.   Springer Science & Business Media, Apr 9, - Computers - pages 0 Reviews This book is an outgrowth of formal graduate courses in multiple-criteria decision making (MCDM) that the author . "Decision Making" is relatively short ( pages) and richly illustrated with approximately figures. It is suitable for both self-study and as the basis for an upper-division undergraduate course in judgment and decision making. The book is written to be accessible to anybody with minimum knowledge of mathematics (high-school level algebra. A condition of certainty exists when the decision-maker knows with reasonable certainty what the alternatives are, what conditions are associated with each alternative, and the outcome of each alternative. Under conditions of certainty, accurate, measurable, and reliable information on which to base decisions is available.

This book is very readable and well organized, progressing at a comfortable pace, building in complexity as the reader develops further understanding of decision-making tools.

The authors―noted experts on the topic―and their book covers essential questions, including notions and fundamental concepts of fuzzy sets, models and methods of multiobjective as well as multiattribute decision-making, the classical approach to dealing with uncertainty of information and its generalization for analyzing multicriteria problems in condition of uncertainty, and more.   This book provides an overview of the main methods and results in the formal study of the human decision-making process, as defined in a relatively wide sense.

  Book Description This book discusses management decision-making under accident conditions as a vehicle to confirm the importance of clear decision-making guided by a systems approach on how an organization functions related to the role of .   Sources of Power is written by Gary Klein, a cognitive scientist, and it is a book that elevates the writing about decision-making to something more than the tricks and theatrics of popular.   Decision makers are often faced with several conflicting alternatives. How do they evaluate trade-offs when there are more than three criteria? To help people make optimal decisions, scholars in the discipline of multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) continue to develop new methods for structuring preferences and determining the correct relative. So, the decision maker must know the conditions under which decisions are to be made. Generally, the decision maker makes decision under the condition of certainty, risk and uncertainty. There are three conditions that managers may face as they make decisions. They are .
