The art and science of making up your mind by Rex V Brown( )

2 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Art and Science of Making Up Your Mind presents basic decision-making principles and tools to help the reader respond efficiently and wisely to everyday dilemmas. Although most decisions are made informally (whether intuitively without deliberate thought, or based on careful reflection), over the centuries people have tried to develop systematic, scientific and structured ways in which to make decisions. Using qualitative counterparts to quantitative models, Rex Brown takes the reader through the basics, like 'what is a decision' and then considers a wide variety of real-life decisions, explaining how the best judgments can be made using logical principles. Combining multiple evaluations of the same judgment ("hybrid judgment") and exploring innovative analytical concepts (such as "ideal judgment"), this book explores and analyzes the skills needed to master the basics of non-mathematical decision making, and what should be done, using real world illustrations of decision methods. The book is an ideal companion for students of Thinking, Reasoning and Decision-Making, and also for anyone wanting to understand how to make better judgments in their everyday lives
The Timeliness of a NATO response to an impending Warsaw Pact attack by Rex V Brown( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on an assessment of NATO readiness in the event of a Warsaw Pact attack. The purpose of the study was to develop a methodology for understanding the NATO decision-making process during periods of rising tensions involving the increasingly strong possibility of an attack by the Warsaw Pact countries. The particular question addressed by the study was--If the Warsaw Pact were to attack at the end of a 30-day mobilization cycle, at what point in time after the Pact begins to mobilize would NATO initiate a state of reinforced alert. An answer to this question can serve as an input for determining the most likely state of NATO readiness on Warsaw Pact D-day. Obviously, there may be as many answers to questions about NATO reaction time as there are experts with plausible scenarios. However, since there is no one set of correct answers, the development of new techniques and insights to assist military planners in making more realistic, defensible estimates of NATO mobilization time is perceived to be of considerable value with respect to U.S. General Purpose Force Planning and in Mutual and Balanced Force Reduction (MBFR) negotiations

An analysis of alternative Mideastern oil agreements by Rex V Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes an application of prescriptive decision analysis to a problem of choosing between alternative U.S. foreign policy options. More specifically, the choice relates to possible agreements with a Mideastern country which involve different degrees of U.S. political and economic concessions in return for improved prospects for the supply of oil to the U.S. The analysis described in this report involved the development and use of a flexible decision model to evaluate three sharply different negotiating strategies regarding a possible agreement with a Mideastern country. A baseline option involved no change now or later in U.S. policies toward this Mideastern country and was used primarily as a reference point for purposes of comparison. A maximum option involved an agreement which went most of the way toward what certain Mideastern countries want. The third option was an intermediate strategy reflecting a moderate change in U.S. policy which would be attractive to the Mideastern country, but not politically difficult for the U.S

Decision support for attack submarine commanders by Marvin S Cohen( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In research funded by ONR, DSC has examined decisions at the command and control level for nuclear-powered attack class submarines. Analysis of decision requirements and current practice within various scenarios has led to consideration of three broad classes of aids: inference aids, alerting aids, and prompting aids. One context has been singled out for detailed attention--passive target ranging with the intent to engage an enemy. The CO currently assesses target ranging by selecting informally from several competing estimates of 'solutions, ' informally assessing their probable accuracy, and then informally deciding when to fire a torpedo. An attack may be unnecessarily delayed because he is unable to exploit all the available information in a timely manner: Three kinds of aids have been developed on a conceptual level for this situation: for each solution technique, an adjusted range assessment is provided together with an estimate of its accuracy; the results of the separate passive ranging techniques are pooled to produce a single probabilistic range assessment; and the resultant range assessment is used to alert the CO to critical dangers or opportunities; e.g., when the probability that the target is within weapon range exceeds a preset threshold. The proposed aids are 'personalist' in the sense that they systematically integrate both objective and subjective sources of information. The feasibility of objective estimation of parameters for these aids has been demonstrated by reference to RANGEX data. (Author)
