Principles of risk analysis : decision making under uncertainty by Charles E Yoe( )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Preface I did not want to write this book. I wanted to buy it. Risk analysis is mature enough that it needs a principles text. There are many wonderful books available on the subject of risk. In fact, for years, in the training I have done, I used to schlep a dozen of them around for students to peruse. These I called the starter library. I urged people to buy them. Eventually I stopped carrying the books with me and started looking for that one book that would introduce students and professionals to the integrated topic of risk analysis. I never found it. So, I decided to go ahead and write it. Risk analysis is a very parochial subject matter and practice. There are many tribes of risk practitioners, and they speak many dialects. To be honest, I am not entirely sure the field is ready for anything one might call a principles text. We may never have enough agreement on the principles to so ordain them as a community of practice. Nonetheless, it has been my great fortune to have worked with a lot of people on many different applications of the risk analysis decision-making paradigm. This has included natural disasters, engineering, food safety, food defense, environmental issues, animals and plants, trade, quality management, business, finance, terrorism, defense applications, research, and other risk analysis applications. No matter how much the words and models changed from one application to the next, I found the basic principles were rather constant. Everyone was struggling to figure out how best to make good decisions when there are so many things we just don't know for sure. My major accomplishment in all of this was simply to learn the jargon of each field; then I stole liberally from the other fields, adapting ideas, methodologies, and models from one field"--

Primer on Risk Analysis: Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Second Edition lays out the tasks of risk analysis in a straightforward, conceptual manner, tackling the question, "What is risk analysis?" Distilling the common principles of many risk dialects into serviceable definitions, it provides a foundation for the practice of risk management and decision making under uncertainty for professionals from all disciplines. New in this edition is an expanded risk management emphasis that includes an overview chapter on enterprise risk management and a chapter on decision making under uncertainty designed to help decision makers use the results of risk analysis in practical ways to improve decisions and their outcomes. This book will empower you to enter the world of risk management in your own domain of expertise by providing you with practical, insightful, useful and adaptable knowledge of risk analysis science including risk management, risk assessment, and risk communication
Framework for estimating national economic development benefits and other beneficial effects of flood warning and preparedness systems by Charles E Yoe( )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods for estimating benefits to flood damage reduction measures are well established. There are, however, contexts in which the estimation of benefits are more difficult. Estimating benefits of flood warning and preparedness alternatives in one of the more problematic contexts the Corps' planners face. The 'National Economic Development Procedures Manual-Urban Flood Damage' prepared by the Institute for Water Resources in March 1988, presents a thorough documentation of flood damage reduction benefit estimating procedures. Chapter IX of the manual provides an introduction to the evaluation of flood warning and preparedness system benefits. The purposes of this report are to present a conceptual framework for planners to evaluate benefits accruing to flood warning and preparedness alternatives and to demonstrate methods suitable for estimating these benefits under a variety of planning circumstances
An introduction to risk and uncertainty in the evaluation of environmental investments by Charles E Yoe( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Civil Works program has historically evolved and changed to meet the changing needs and priorities of the Nation. Two relatively recent changes in the Corps' program are of particular interest in this report. They are the increased emphasis on environmental outputs of existing and new projects and the increasing use of risk and uncertainty analysis in the Corps' decision-making processes. The trends toward greater emphasis on environmental outputs and more use of risk and uncertainty analysis began at different times and for different reasons. Now, as environmental activities are routinely undertaken by planning, operations, engineering and construction divisions throughout all Corps districts and risk and uncertainty analyses have reached a level of maturity and acceptance, there is a confluence of these two trends. The national interest in risk and uncertainty analysis had its genesis in the analysis of environmental risk analysis in the late 1960s. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is generally credited with beginning the interest in risk and uncertainty analysis. It stands to reason therefore, that now that the Corps' involvement in environmental activities is reaching a critical mass, the Corps should begin to introduce techniques of risk and uncertainty analysis into its decision process in order to improve the quality of decisions. Introducing risk and uncertainty analysis to the Corps' environmental activities is a new initiative. It will require personnel to learn a few new tricks. But the introduction of risk and uncertainty analysis to this area of endeavor will not impose new significant burdens on analysts or managers

Introduction to natural resource planning by Charles E Yoe( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an exciting time for natural resources planning. There are amazing technologies available to planners and a wide and growing array of resources, problems, and opportunities that need attention. Private and public interests are taking up these issues all over the world and at all levels of involvement. At the same time, inefficient planning policies and procedures can threaten the art of successful planning. Demonstrating how to put effective planning theory into practice, Introduction to Natural Resource Planning introduces an

Incorporating risk and uncertainty into environmental evaluation : an annotated bibliography by Charles E Yoe( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report was prepared to provide assistance to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) in beginning to assess risk and uncertainty in the evaluation of environmental investments. The literature review presented in this report was developed as an initial effort for the 'Incorporating Risk and Uncertainty into Environmental Evaluation' work unit of the Corps' Evaluation of Environmental Investments Research Program (EEIRP). The products of the EEIRP provide Corps planners with methodologies and techniques to aid in developing supportable environmental restoration and mitigation projects and plans. This literature review is primarily for Corps personnel, but it has two audiences. It serves as both a primer on the generic risk analysis literature that will help planners find the tools they need to do risk analysis, as well as a gateway to help more experienced personnel find their way into the environmental resource risk analysis literature. The first task in this research was to review the Corps' existing risk analysis guidance to determine how it may be useful in crafting the future development of risk and uncertainty analysis guidelines for evaluating environmental investments. The review begins with an introduction to the concept of ecosystem restoration. To provide a contextual approach to the review, the generic notion of uncertainty is considered in the ecosystem restoration planning process. A taxonomy of uncertainty is offered as a starting point for understanding the types and sources of uncertainty encountered in environmental resources planning

Lock rehabilitation, a public infrastructure problem : the value of increased productivity in mean lockage performance by Charles E Yoe( )

3 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Productivity increases are measured in terms of decreases in the mean time it takes tow to transit a lock. The analysis develops a dynamic model for estimating these values. The quantity of public infrastructure capital, i.e., lock capital cannot be estimated by any of the commonly accepted price or quantity methods due to lack of data. Lock capital is estimated with price data and estimates of asset depreciation functions. A recursive system of equations with exogenous demand for lockages at the lock to be rehabilitated is estimated to show the effect of lock capital on transit time. An increase in lock capital is shown to decrease mean values of: 1) the time it takes to service a tow 2) queue length and, 3) the total transit time required to pass through a lock. The model is solved for Lock and Dam 13 on the Mississippi River. The value of the improved productivity is minimal and relatively insensitive to variations in model assumptions or the estimation of the quantity of capital. Results indicate a need for data on the physical characteristics of public infrastructure capital so its quantity can be estimated. The value of improvements in infrastructure's mean productivity appear to be insignificant when compared to the value of preventing economic losses which could result from failure or loss of the infrastructure. The importance of an empirical basis for estimating the probability of infrastructure failure is pointed out as is the current lack of data to do this

Addressing risk and uncertainty in planning ecological restoration projects( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corps of Engineers planners have been required to consider risk and uncertainty since the Principles and Standards Act of 1972. The Actions for Change are increasing the Corps of Engineers' reliance on risk-informed analysis and decision making. An informal review of the Corps' experience with ecosystem restoration plans has shown few, if any, systematic efforts to address the often significant uncertainties encountered in estimating and quantifying environmental benefits. Better evaluation of these uncertainties and consequent project risks will improve the quality of ecosystem restoration planning efforts. The purpose of this technical note is to encourage the systematic and routine consideration of uncertainty when estimating environmental benefits of ecosystem restoration projects
Risk and Uncertainty Analysis Procedures for the Evaluation of Environmental Outputs( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecosystem restoration projects are replete with uncertainties, large and small. A major source of uncertainty in many such projects is the environmental output of the project. To estimate existing and future environmental outputs, many U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' projects rely on habitat evaluation models like the Habitat Evaluation Procedures (REP) developed by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). REP analysis, as this process is called, relies on the estimation of the number of habitat units that exist at a site under certain environmental conditions. Habitat units are the simple product of a number of acres of habitat and a habitat suitability index that indicates the relative suitability of those acres for a particular wildlife species. The habitat suitability index is based on the mathematical manipulation of a set of habitat variables. A case study is used to illustrate the role that habitat variable measurements play in the uncertainty that attends the estimation of project outputs. The lessons learned during the course of the case study investigation can be grouped into three categories: preparation, data collection and analysis. During the preparation of the risk-based analysis several things were learned. First, it is necessary to realize that uncertainty exists, it cannot be eliminated and it is best to address it explicitly. Second, one must understand the nature of uncertainty and how to think about it. Third, the purpose of the risk analysis, to improve decision-making, must be clear to all. Fourth, the major sources of uncertainty must be identified as soon as possible. Fifth, care must be taken to assure that everyone is using the language consistently. Sixth, preparing ahead of time for the risk-based analysis is important
