In emergency domain, experts must make decisions both usual and unusual. These decisions lead to unpredictable impacts, causing the need for these experts to deal with impacts mitigation. Unexpected need of impacts mitigation consists in an overload of material resources and expert cognitive capacity. After decision making, impacts mitigation demands valuable expert efforts. To address this problem, this paper proposes a decision impact projection in early stages of emergency management, during… 

Figures from this paper

ImpactMap: A Collaborative Environment to Support Impact Projection of Complex Decision
ImpactMap approach is presented, a collaborative environment that allows exchange of ideas and perspectives to discuss and project impacts of complex decisions and is able to create an interactive environment and supports the impact projection needs of a decision team.
Towards the characterization of impact projection for complex decisions
This paper proposes the characterization of projections for the impacts of decisions in the early stages of decision management, and a complex decision impact metamodel is put forward that forms the basis of a support system to orient decision makers in the achievement of decision impacts.
Sharing Gut Feelings to Support Collaborative Decision Making
The present work proposes a solution based on graphs to support the sharing of the intuition rationale in teams aiming at an accelerated expertise by exploring the use of generated artifacts in practice that produced insights for the proposed computational support.

The original definition of situation awareness as well as trust issues are looked into and the plan to use the Recovery Watcher system in an island for elderly care aswell as tourism in future is presented.
Agnosco: Transferring Intuition from Individuals to Collaborative Teams
This work proposes to use a team instead of an individual as a way to accelerate the process of training and replacing the expert, and proposes a process to develop intuition in a group.


Putting plans on track in unforeseen situations
This paper outlines and illustrates one approach—drawing upon the paradigm of improvisation—for providing management-level response personnel with information and tools to support on-the-fly adaptation of emergency response plans.
Decision Making in Action: Models and Methods
This book describes the new perspective of naturalistic decision making. The point of departure is how people make decisions in complex, time-pressured, ambiguous, and changing environments. The

Naturalistic Decision Making
The origins and contributions of the naturalistic decision making research approach, which has been used to improve performance through revisions of military doctrine, training that is focused on decision requirements, and the development of information technologies to support decision making and related cognitive functions.
Extending Naturalistic Decision Making to Complex Organizations: A Dynamic Model of Situated Cognition
It is argued that the dynamic model of situated cognition can be used to describe activities in virtually any complex domain and is extended to include the technological agents in complex systems and introduced.

The goal of this paper is to assist software developers in dealing with communication problems in the development of mobile applications to support the emergency response.
Smart Choices: A Practical Guide to Making Better Decisions
Smart Choices doesn't tell you what to decide; it tells you how to decide, and as you routinely use the process, you'll become more confident in your ability to make decisions at work and at home, and you'll make better decisions going forward.
Projected Impact of Vaccination Timing and Dose Availability on the Course of the 2014 West African Ebola Epidemic
There is a closing window of opportunity for the use of vaccine as a tool for Ebola epidemic control, and effective vaccination, used before the epidemic peaks, would be projected to prevent tens of thousands of deaths.
