    Game theory is the study of mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers. It has applications in all fields of social science, as well as in logic, systems science and computer ally, it addressed zero-sum games, in which each participant's gains or losses are exactly balanced by those of the other participants.

Cardoso et al. [15] proposed a MILP formulation to integrate different risk measures. The recent advances in computer speed and algorithms for probabilistic inference have led to a resurgence of work on planning under uncertainty.

The aim is to design Formulation of tradeoffs in planning under uncertainty book planners for environments where there may be incomplete or faulty information, where actions may not always have the same results and where there may be tradeoffs between the Cited by:   In this study, we assume hydrologic stationarity in generating synthetic flows for the model simulations such that optimized operating policies represent baseline tradeoffs under our best perception of the current state of the world.

Part I presents five approaches for designing strategic plans under deep uncertainty: Robust Decision Making, Dynamic Adaptive Planning, Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, Info-Gap Decision Theory, and Engineering Options Analysis/5(9).

Abstract. We present a new methodology to automate decision making over time and uncertainty. We adopt a knowledge-based model construction approach to support automated and interactive formulation of dynamic decision models, i.e., models that explicitly consider the effects of by: 5.

Graph-based integer linear programming combined with multi-attribute utility analysis is employed to identify the best set of tradeoffs among (a) disassembly time (and resulting cost) under uncertainty, (b) the probability of not incurring damage during disassembly, (c) reassembly time (and resulting cost), and (d) the probability of not Cited by: Representation Requirements for Supporting Decision Model Formulation Tze-Yun Leong MIT Laboratory for Computer Science Technology Square, room Cambridge, MA ([email protected]) Abstract This paper outlines a methodology for analyzing the representational support for knowledge-based decision-modeling in a broad domain.A relevant set of inference patterns and Cited by: 2.

Disassembly sequence planning may be used to make end-of-life product take-back processes more cost effective. Much of the research involving disassembly sequence planning relies on mathematical optimization models.

In this study, an inexact fuzzy-stochastic energy model (IFS-EM) is developed for planning energy and environmental systems (EES) management under multiple uncertainties.

In the IFS-EM, methods of interval parameter fuzzy linear programming (IFLP) and multistage stochastic programming with recourse (MSP) are introduced into a mixed-integer linear.

5 Incorporating Uncertainty into Decision Making. A s outlined in Chapter 1, the committee focused on the uncertainty in three types of factors that can play a role in the decisions of the U.S.

Uncertainty is explicitly included in the strategic model by integrating the information provided by the operating model. The systemic approach developed is able to obtain different capacity expansion solutions that explicitly balance the tradeoffs between system robustness and solution cost.

The newsvendor model is a standard problem formulation in Operations Management for making optimal capacity/inventory decisions under uncertainty. You might say it’s “the first formula in the textbook.” Here’s how it goes. This open access book focuses on both the theory and practice associated with the tools and approaches for decisionmaking in the face of deep uncertainty.

It explores approaches and tools supporting the design of strategic plans under deep uncertainty, and their testing in the real world, including barriers and enablers for their use in practice.

In this study, an IFTSP (interval-fuzzy two-stage stochastic programming) method is developed for planning carbon dioxide (CO2) emission trading under uncertainty. The developed IFTSP incorporates techniques of interval fuzzy linear programming and two-stage stochastic programming within a general optimization framework, which can effectively tackle.

Previously, two-stage stochastic programming (TSP) was reported as an effective tool for water resources planning under uncertainty [9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18].The TSP methods reported are characterized by two essential features: the uncertainty (i.e., random river flows) is but not only expressed with a certain probabilistic distribution and the sequence of : Zhenfang Liu, Yang Zhou, Gordon Huang, Bin Luo.

This book presents the fundamental concepts of project management in a concise fashion with an emphasis on the difficult tradeoffs that must be made by project managers.

The authors describe the basic analytical tools and project management methodologies and show how to apply these tools and methodologies to realistic problems.

Discrepancies between water demand and supply are intensifying and creating a need for sustainable water resource process management associated with rapid economic development, population growth, and urban expansion.

When designing supply chains, firms are often faced with the competing demands of improved customer service and reduced cost.

We extend a cost-based location-inventory model (Shen et al. ) to include a customer service element and develop practical methods for quick and meaningful evaluation of cost/service by: Once planning and scoping are under way, problem formulation begins and runs in parallel with them.

Discussions during this stage focus primarily on methodologic issues of the desired assessment, as illustrated in Box It is important to note that communication between the two, now parallel stages, needs to occur for the assessment to be.

The essential character of the general models under consideration is that activities are divided into two or more stages. The quantities of activities in the first stage are the only ones that are required to be determined; those in the second (or later) stages can not be determined in advance since they depend on the earlier stages and the random or uncertain demands which occur on or before Cited by: decision analysis program.

As a problem-solving approach, decision analysis involves far more than the use of decision trees as a calculational tool. It is a process of framing a problem correctly, of dealing effectively with uncertainty, of involving all the relevant people, File Size: 1MB.
