Analyze decision problems by breaking them down into manageable parts. Examine tools and methods available for structuring and modeling decision problems.


Uncertainty and complexity make many decisions difficult, especially those involving R&D projects, new products and new ventures. This program introduces decision and risk analysis – the systematic evaluation of decision problems involving uncertainty. Decision and risk analysis breaks decision problems down into more manageable parts and explicitly considers the possible alternatives, available information, and the relevant preferences of the decision makers. We will discuss methods for structuring and modeling decision problems, and apply these methods to a variety of problems that involve risk and uncertainty.


  • Understand the basic tools available for structuring problems involving risk and uncertainty
  • Develop the ability to break down problems for analysis
  • Examine methods for structuring and modeling decision problems, and apply these methods to a variety of problems that involve risk and uncertainty
  • Define alternatives for project execution
