Decisions with multiple objectives : preferences and value tradeoffs by Ralph L Keeney( Book )

46 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the complex problems faced by decision makers involve multiple conflicting objectives. This book describes how a confused decision maker, who wishes to make a reasonable and responsible choice among alternatives, can systematically probe his true feelings in order to make those critically important, vexing tradeoffs between incommensurable objectives. The theory is illustrated by many real concrete examples taken from a host of disciplinary settings. The standard approach in decision theory or decision analysis specifies a simplified single objective like monetary return to maximize. By generalizing from the single objective case to the multiple objective case, this book considerably widens the range of applicability of decision analysis
Value-focused thinking : a path to creative decisionmaking by Ralph L Keeney( Book )

34 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The standard way of thinking about decisions is backwards, says Ralph Keeney; people focus first on identifying alternatives rather than on articulating values. A problem arises and people react, placing the emphasis on mechanics and fixed choices instead of on the objectives that give decision-making its meaning. In this book, Keeney shows how recognizing and articulating fundamental values can lead to the identification of decision opportunities and the creation of better alternatives. The intent is to be proactive and to select more attractive decisions to ponder before attempting any solutions. Keeney describes specific procedures for articulating values by identifying and structuring objectives qualitatively, and he shows how to apply these procedures in various cases. He then explains how to quantify objectives using simple models of values. Such value analysis, Keeney demonstrates, can yield a full range of alternatives, thus converting decision problems into opportunities. This approach can be used to uncover hidden objectives to direct the collection of information, to improve communication, to facilitate collective decision-making, and to guide strategic thinking. To illustrate these uses Keeney shows how value-focused thinking works in many business contexts, such as designing an integrated circuit tester and managing a multibillion-dollar utility company; in government contexts, such as planning future NASA space missions and deciding how to transport nuclear waste to storage sites; and in personal contexts, such as choosing career moves and making wise health and safety decisions. This should be useful to anyone from consultants and managers to systems analysts and students

Wise choices : decisions, games, and negotiations( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection - a tribute to the lifetime intellectual odyssey of Howard Raiffa, world-renowned applied mathematician - leading scholars in economics, psychology, statistics, and decision theory grapple with the perennial question of how to make wise choices. Their answers reflect the unity of the three fields Raiffa pioneered: decision analysis, game theory, and negotiation." "The twenty-three papers in this collection address such topics as individual decision making under uncertainty, games of strategy in which one player's actions directly influence another's welfare, and the process of forging negotiated agreements. The contributors, including Thomas C. Schelling of the University of Maryland and Amos Tversky of Stanford, also analyze decisions regarding personal medical problems, national public policies, business investments, and international diplomacy." "Whether your challenge is to craft a stock portfolio, forge a diplomatic settlement, or make your technology a standard on the Internet, this volume will help you think deeply and choose wisely."--Jacket
Siting energy facilities by Ralph L Keeney( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siting Energy Facilities describes a tool for making the process of finding sites for energy facilities more efficient and more responsive to the concerns of society. The result should be better sites and a siting process that is understandable and defensible. A major focus of the approach is the systematic search for and identification of suitable candidate sites for the proposed facility. The evaluation of the candidate sites explicitly includes environmental impacts, health and safety, socioeconomic effects, and public attitudes, in addition to engineering and economic criteria. The procedure allows the inclusion of the uncertainties and value judgments that are a significant part of all energy siting problems. The material in this book can be categorized into three sections: problem definition, the methodological and procedural aspects of the decision analysis siting approach, and illustrations of its use. The first two chapters define what is meant by an energy facility siting problem and indicate the approach and motivation for the decision analysis siting procedure. Subsequent chapters discuss methodological and procedural details of the approach along with a case study on the selection of a site for a pumped storage power plant
