This is one of the books about decision making techniques that combines the. The purpose of this book is to question the relationships involved in decision making and the systems designed to support it: decision support systems (DSS). The focus is on how these systems are engineered; to stop and think about the questions to be asked throughout the engineering process and, in particular, about the impact designers.

The Kepner-Tregoe decision making model is a four step process for gathering information and prioritizing and evaluating it. Step One – Situational Analysis: Clarify the situation, outline concerns and choose a direction. Step Two – Problem Analysis: Define the problem and determine its root cause.

c) The objective of decision making in the short run is to maximise 'satisfaction', which is often known as 'short-term profit'. d) The information on which a decision is based is complete and reliable. The decision making process is a systematic approach which includes several steps. The process begins by defining the issues which needs a decision and determining what the decision should achieve.
