Expert Elicitation A Worked Example

Avoiding Bias Basing judgement on all knowledge and consider all available relevant evidence; Consider the widest possibilities for a range of values and not be constrained by a particular value or range; Be prepared to contradict your own previous thinking and statements Be realistic about your level of confidence or experience of a particular subject; Avoid decisions that might be biased towards organisational goals.

Emission Parameters a) % that is Solvent based ink b) % Solvent content of ink c) % inks used in unabated plant d) % lost from abated plant 75% 60% 10% a * b * (c + (1-c) * d) = 85.5
