Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-3 Decision Analysis  Quantitative methods A set of tools for operations manager A set of tools for operations manager  Decision analysis a set of quantitative decision-making techniques for decision situations in which uncertainty exists a set of quantitative decision-making techniques for decision situations in which uncertainty exists Example of an uncertain situation Example of an uncertain situation demand for a product may vary between 0 and 200 units, depending on the state of market demand for a product may vary between 0 and 200 units, depending on the state of market

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-4 Decision Making Without Probabilities  States of nature Events that may occur in the future Events that may occur in the future Examples of states of nature: Examples of states of nature: high or low demand for a product high or low demand for a product good or bad economic conditions good or bad economic conditions  Decision making under risk probabilities can be assigned to the occurrence of states of nature in the future probabilities can be assigned to the occurrence of states of nature in the future  Decision making under uncertainty probabilities can NOT be assigned to the occurrence of states of nature in the future probabilities can NOT be assigned to the occurrence of states of nature in the future

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-6 Decision Making Criteria Under Uncertainty  Maximax Choose decision with the maximum of the maximum payoffs Choose decision with the maximum of the maximum payoffs  Maximin Choose decision with the maximum of the minimum payoffs Choose decision with the maximum of the minimum payoffs  Minimax regret Choose decision with the minimum of the maximum regrets for each alternative Choose decision with the minimum of the maximum regrets for each alternative

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-7 Decision Making Criteria Under Uncertainty (cont.)  Hurwicz Choose decision in which decision payoffs are weighted by a coefficient of optimism, alpha Choose decision in which decision payoffs are weighted by a coefficient of optimism, alpha Coefficient of optimism is a measure of a decision maker’s optimism, from 0 (completely pessimistic) to 1 (completely optimistic) Coefficient of optimism is a measure of a decision maker’s optimism, from 0 (completely pessimistic) to 1 (completely optimistic)  Equal likelihood (La Place) Choose decision in which each state of nature is weighted equally Choose decision in which each state of nature is weighted equally

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-16 Decision Making with Probabilities  Risk involves assigning probabilities to states of nature  Expected value a weighted average of decision outcomes in which each future state of nature is assigned a probability of occurrence a weighted average of decision outcomes in which each future state of nature is assigned a probability of occurrence

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-17 Expected value EV ( x ) = p ( x i ) x i n i =1 x i = outcome i p ( x i )= probability of outcome i where

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-20 Expected Value of Perfect Information  EVPI maximum value of perfect information to the decision maker maximum value of perfect information to the decision maker  Maximum amount that an investor would pay to purchase perfect information

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-21 EVPI Example  Good conditions will exist 70% of the time  choose maintain status quo with payoff of \$1,300,000  Poor conditions will exist 30% of the time  choose expand with payoff of \$500,000  Expected value given perfect information = \$1,300,000 (0.70) + 500,000 (0.30) = \$1,060,000  Recall that expected value without perfect information was \$865,000 (maintain status quo)  EVPI= \$1,060,000 - 865,000 = \$195,000

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-22 Sequential Decision Trees  A graphical method for analyzing decision situations that require a sequence of decisions over time  Decision tree consists of  Square nodes - indicating decision points  Circles nodes - indicating states of nature  Arcs - connecting nodes

Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.Supplement 2-23 Evaluations at Nodes Compute EV at nodes 6 & 7 EV(node 6)= 0.80(\$3,000,000) + 0.20(\$700,000) = \$2,540,000 EV(node 7)= 0.30(\$2,300,000) + 0.70(\$1,000,000)= \$1,390,000 Decision at node 4 is between \$2,540,000 for Expand and \$450,000 for Sell land Choose Expand Repeat expected value calculations and decisions at remaining nodes
