1. INTRODUCTION This technical report summarizes applications of decision analysis that appeared in major English language operations research (OR) journals and other closely related journals from 1990 through 2001. The primary purpose of this report is to provide backup information for Keefer et al. (2004), which discusses trends in decision analysis applications. While this technical report stands alone, Keefer et al. (2004) provides analysis that many readers will find useful. Section 2 of… Expand
Perspective on Decision Analysis Applications, 1990 - 2001
TLDR
An exhaustive survey of decision analysis applications published in the period 1990-2001 in major English-language operations research and closely related journals concludes that the overall rate of publication of decisionAnalysis applications has increased and both the mix of application areas and the specific aspects of decisionanalysis that are emphasized in applications publications have shifted somewhat.

Fuzzy decision trees as a decision-making framework in the public sector
TLDR
F fuzzy decision- making framework is presented, which combines the advantages of the introduction of the decision-making problem in a tree structure and the possibilities offered by the flexibility of the fuzzy approach. Expand
Application of Multicriteria Decision Analysis in Environmental Decision Making
TLDR
A generalized framework for decision analysis is proposed to highlight the fundamental ingredients for more structured and tractable environmental decision making. Expand
Department of Engineering Physics and Mathematics
The objective of this Thesis is to examine the evaluation of single research and development (R&D) project and the management of R&D project portfolio. A challenge the R&D organizations have faced isExpand
Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis: A Framework for Structuring Remedial Decisions at Contaminated Sites
Decision-making in environmental projects is typically a complex and confusing exercise, characterized by trade-offs between socio-political, environmental, and economic impacts. Cost-benefitExpand
Decision Theory as an Aid to Private Choice: Limitations, Contributions and Prospects
TLDR
The most practical way for D to approximate his ideal decisions may not be with models that embody norms of statistical decision theory, but with applied decision theory (ADT), which should become increasingly useful and widespread, as technical, cultural and institutional impediments are overcome. Expand
To Spray or Not to Spray: A Decision Analysis of Coffee Berry Borer in Hawaii
TLDR
The use of a decision tree is shown to be an effective method for understanding integrated pest management strategies and solutions and to ensure a low initial infestation level. Expand
Decision support for river rehabilitation
The aim of this study is to analyze the possible contribution of MCDA methods for decision making and conflict resolution in environmental management projects. Thereby, MCDA methods were applied toExpand

Decision Analysis Applications in the Operations Research Literature, 1970-1989
TLDR
This paper surveys applications of decision analysis published from 1970 through 1989 and notes articles that present significant detail about methodological and implementation issues, including problem structure/formulation, decision trees, probability and utility assessment, communication/facilitation, and group decision making. Expand
Characteristics of Decisions in Decision Analysis Practice
TLDR
The results show that decisions tend to be multiattributed, involve a modest number of alternatives, and uncertainties appear to be the major source of influence on the chosen alternative. Expand
Using Values in Operations Research
TLDR
This paper outlines how to identify values for a specific decision problem, how to structure these values to facilitate thinking and analysis, and how to quantify values. Expand
The Founding of INFORMS: A Decision Analysis Perspective
TLDR
The merger process serves as an instructive case study of the uses and limitations of formal decision analysis methods in strategy formulation and implementation. Expand
Unifying Expert Systems and the Decision Sciences
TLDR
This survey focuses on a subset consisting of: decision making and unification, and not mere co-existence, of the two approaches, and gives definitions, surveys, and examples of each of these ways of unifying expert systems and modeling. Expand
A practical example of a multi-attribute decision aiding technique
The marketing and business development representatives of major construction firms operating abroad experience difficulties from being remote from their decision-making executives. Even with modernExpand
A Decision Support System for Prioritizing Oil and Gas Exploration Activities
TLDR
A decision support system developed to prioritize oil and gas exploration activities and was designed to be used on a routine basis by personnel unfamiliar with these technical issues, so they were masked from the user. Expand
Valuation of R and D Projects Using Options Pricing and Decision Analysis Models
A combination of options-pricing techniques and decision-analysis tools forms a practical process for evaluating R and D projects in a way that correctly values the impact of decision flexibility andExpand
Dynamic decision problem structuring
TLDR
This approach endeavours to bridge the gap between prescriptive and descriptive decision problem structuring, and synthesizes a number of models and approaches cited in the decision-making literature in general and the multi-criteria literature in particular. Expand
