CHAPTER 19: Decision Theory to accompany Introduction to Business Statistics fourth edition, by Ronald M. Weiers Presentation by Priscilla Chaffe-Stengel Donald N. Stengel © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Chapter 19 - Learning Objectives Express a decision situation in terms of decision alternatives, states of nature, and payoffs. Differentiate between non-Bayesian and Bayesian decision criteria. Determine the expected payoff for a decision alternative. Calculate and interpret the expected value of perfect information. Express and analyze the decision situation in terms of opportunity loss and expected opportunity loss. Apply incremental analysis to inventory-level decisions. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group

The Decision Situation The decision maker can control which decision alternative ( row ) is selected but cannot determine which state of nature ( column ) will occur. The decision alternative is selected prior to knowing the state of nature. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
An Example Problem 19.34: A ski resort operator must decide before the winter season whether he will lease a snow- making machine. If he has no machine, he will make $20,000 if the winter is mild, $30,000 if it is typical, and $50,000 if the winter is severe. If he decides to lease the machine, his profits for these conditions will be $30,000, $35,000, and $40,000, respectively. The probability of a mild winter is 0.3, with a 0.5 chance of a typical winter and a 0.2 chance of a severe winter. If the operater wants to maximize his expected profit, should he lease the machine? What is the most he should be willing to pay for a perfect forecast? © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
The Decision Situation: An Example The decision alternatives are: –The operator does not lease the snow-making machine. –The operator does lease the snow-making machine. The states of nature are: –The winter is mild. –The winter is typical. –The winter is severe. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
The Payoff Table where v ij is the payoff value associated with the selecting Alternative i and having State j occur, and p j is the probability that State j occurs. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group

The Decision Tree: An Example 0.3 Winter mild $20, Winter typical $30, Winter severe $50, Winter mild $30, Winter typical $35, Winter severe $40,000 Does not lease snow- making machine Does lease snow- making machine © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Non-Bayesian Decision Theory: Strategies Without Probabilities Maximin Strategy - Select the alternative with the least unfavorable possible outcome. Maximax Strategy - Select the alternative with the best possible outcome. Minimax Regret - Select the alternative that minimizes the regret the decision maker will experience after the state of nature is known. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Non-Bayesian Decision Theory: An Example Maximin Strategy: –Decide to lease the snow-making machine because the minimum payoff for that alternative is $30,000, which beats the minimum payoff of $20,000 for the alternative to not lease the snow-making machine. Maximax Strategy: –Decide to not lease the snow-making machine because the maximum payoff for that alternative is $50,000, which beats the maximum payoff of $40,000 for the alternative to lease the snow-making machine. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Bayesian Decision Theory: Strategies With Probabilities Expected Payoff (or Expected Monetary Value) Criterion: Select the alternative where the expected value for the payoff is the best. Expected Opportunity Loss Criterion: Select the decision alternative with the minimum expected regret value. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Expected Value: An Example 0.3 Winter mild $20, Winter typical $30, Winter severe $50, Winter mild $30, Winter typical $35, Winter severe $40,000 Does not lease snow- making machine Does lease snow- making machine 0.3($20,000) + 0.5($30,000) + 0.2($50,000) = $31, ($30,000) + 0.5($35,000) + 0.2($40,000) = $34,500 © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Expected Value: An Example In the long run, the operator will expect to earn $34,500 if he does lease the snow-making machine compared to $31,000 if he does not lease the snow- making machine. Best Decision: Lease the snow-making machine. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
The Expected Value of Perfect Information (EVPI) EVPI = – where the expected payoff value of perfect information is the product of the probability that state of nature j occurs times the best payoff of any alternative for state j. The EVPI represents the maximum amount the decision maker should be willing to spend to reduce uncertainty about which state of nature will occur. Expected payoff with perfect information Expected payoff with present information © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
The Expected Value of Perfect Information: An Example With perfect information, the operator will: –Lease the machine in a mild winter, $30,000 –Lease the machine in a typical winter, $35,000 –Not lease the machine in a severe winter, $50,000 Perfect information will earn the operator: 0.3($30,000) + 0.5($35,000) + 0.2($50,000) = $36,500 So the value of perfect information is: $36,500 – $34,500 = $2,000 © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
The Expected Opportunity Loss (EOL) EOL is another term for regret and is calculated in a manner similar to expected payoff: EOL = where p i is the probability that state of nature i will occur, and l i is the opportunity loss if this alternative is selected and state of nature i occurs. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
EOL: An Example 0.3 Winter mild $30,000 – $20, Winter typical $35,000 – $30, Winter severe $0 0.3 Winter mild $0 0.5 Winter typical $0 0.2 Winter severe $50,000 – $40,000 Does not lease snow- making machine Does lease snow- making machine 0.3($10,000) + 0.5($5,000) + 0.2($0) = $5, ($0) + 0.5($0) + 0.2($10,000) = $2,000 © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
EOL: An Example In the long run, the operator will expect to have an opportunity loss of $5,500 if he does not lease the snow-making machine compared to $2,000 if he does lease the snow-making machine. Best Decision: Lease the snow-making machine. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
Incremental Analysis for Inventory Decisions When the numbers of decision alternatives and states of nature are extremely large, the payoff table and related decision tree may be too cumbersome to use in decision making. In such applications, we can use incremental analysis. Applied to inventory decisions, inventory units –are sequentially considered; –are stocked only if marginal profit exceeds marginal loss. © 2002 The Wadsworth Group
