Description

PURPOSE

  The Decision Optimizer assists you in finding the most suitable solution to your problems by helping you make intelligent choices. The software works on a list of factors and alternatives and then organizes the information in a meaningful and numerical way. After a thorough evaluation, the program will identify the underlying cause and pinpoint the ultimate solution to your problem. Likewise, it will rank relative to all other possible factors and solutions. The software caters to a variety of decision-making and problem-solving processes. Use it to plan a vacation, say yes or no to an offer, etc. Choose the appropriate appliance for your home. In the future, the most appropriate course of action would be. Everything adapts to your decision-making processes.

   Be aware of your values ​​and goals and others involved in your situation. This will ensure that your decision can be made based on the information provided for the program. Choose the problem’s name as a starting point that most accurately describes your scenario. In the second step, explain clearly and concisely the problem you are trying to solve. The third step should be as specific as possible to determine the purpose of the decision analysis. The fourth step will include the reasons behind your decision to do so. Finally, state your findings based on your grounds. Check your results. Which of the following do you think is more likely to be true? Do you interpret this conclusion differently? If so, should a logical conclusion be drawn? Is there a difference between your conclusion and your decision? Identify the factors influencing the problem or decision and consider the general factors (sub-factors) associated with each factor in the first section. As part of the decision-making process, use the program guidelines to determine the root cause of your problem or the components of the decision you need to make. Identifying and selecting a particular factor as the primary source of your problem weighs the pros and cons. In the second section, create surrogates and options related to each co-factor. Follow the program’s recommendations when making a decision or choosing a solution. Consider the advantages and disadvantages of identifying and selecting a particular option as the immediate solution to your problem.

THE DECISION OPTIMIZER: HOW TO USE THE FIRST PART OF THE PROGRAM

  The first part of the program deals with creating a list of relevant factors and co-factors (sub-factors) associated with each factor that you can use to analyze the root cause of the problem. When prompted, enter each factor one at a time to generate your factor list. When the list is complete to your satisfaction, type in the word ‘end’ to finish the list. Upon completion, the factor list will be re-displayed on the main program screen, but the word ‘end’  will be automatically omitted. Next, you must verify that the factor list meets your approval, but If not, you must re-enter the factor list, which does not have to be the same as the previous list. After re-entering the factor list, and if it still does not meet your approval, you can repeat this process until you come up with a factor list to your satisfaction. You must create a co-factor (sub-factor) list relevant to that corresponding current factor from your factor list. Now you must consider the co-factors (sub-factors) associated with the related present factor. Next, you must enter each co-factor (sub-factor) one at a time relevant to that particular factor until you type the word ‘end’ to finish the list. When completed, the co-factor (sub-factor) list will be re-displayed in numerical order on the main program screen. You will now decide the most significant single co-factor (sub-factor) and enter its number. (You can enter 0 if you wish to change the co-factor (sub-factor) list.)

   The program now asks you to rate the importance of each of the other co-factors (sub-factors) relative to the most significant one. The rating starts by automatically assigning a rating of 20 to the main co-factor (sub-factor) you selected as the most relevant. Now, you must give a value ranging from 0.1 to 19.9 to each of the other co-factors (sub-factors). These numbers reflect your assessment of each co-factor’s (sub-factors) relative importance compared to the main co-factor’s (sub-factor). A value of 20 means that the co-factor (sub-factor) is just as essential as the main factor, but smaller values indicate what less importance you place on it. This assessment helps to rate the contributing co-factors (sub-factors) concerning each crucial factor. The program treats each vital factor separately.
Considering [only] that important factor, you must rate how each contributing co-factor (sub-factor) stacks up. The program first assigns a value of 20 to one of the essential factors. Then you must give a relative number (lower, higher, or equal to 20) to each of the other critical factors. When completed, the program displays the factors and co-factors in rows and columns on the main program screen. It would be best if you now determined whether or not you want to change the values. If not, the program will proceed to the evaluation process with the information given.
With the current data, the program will determine which factor is the root cause of your problem. The various factors will be listed in order of importance. Alongside each factor will be a relative rating with the most relevant factor given a value normalized at 100.

   You will be asked if you want to perform a sensitivity analysis to change any values. If not, the program will go to the next factor from your factor list. Then, it will take you through each co-factor on your generated co-factor list for that corresponding factor, where you will follow through the same process as with the first factor. The cycle repeats itself until you find the most relevant factor as the root cause of the current problem under consideration. Finally, you may want to write down the desired result.

   The program will display the analysis results for 10 seconds. Afterward, it goes to the second part to assist you in finding a solution to your problem.

THE DECISION OPTIMIZER: HOW TO USE THE SECOND PART OF THE PROGRAM

   In this second part, the program deals with creating a list of alternatives and options associated with each alternative that you can use to pinpoint and synthesize the final solution to your problem. You must enter each alternative one at a time to create your alternative list. Each alternative should be the antonym or a more appropriate word or phrase corresponding to each factor from your previous factor list. But don’t worry about typing in the word ‘end’ to finish it. The number of alternative entries will correspond to the number of entries in your previous factor list. Once completed, the program will automatically prompt you to confirm your satisfaction with the alternative list. If not, you will make a new list again until you are satisfied. You can repeat this process until the list meets your approval. For example, if everything were favorable the first time, the program would prompt you to create an options list relevant to the corresponding current alternative from your alternative list. Now you must consider the options associated with the alternative currently being evaluated. Again you have to enter each option individually. The number of choice entries corresponds to the number of co-factor (sub-factor) entries from your previous list of co-factors. After that, the options list will be re-displayed in numerical order on the main program screen. You must now choose the most critical option and enter its number. (You can enter 0 if you wish to change the options list.)

   The program now asks you to rate the importance of each of the other options relative to the most significant one. The rating starts by automatically assigning a rating of 20 to the leading option you selected as the most relevant. Now, you must give a value ranging from 0.1 to 19.9 to each of the other options. These numbers reflect your assessment of each option’s relative importance compared to the primary option. A value of 20 means that the other current option is just as important as the direct option, but smaller values indicate what less importance you place on it.

   Now you must rate the decision options for each of the corresponding alternatives. The program will then treat each alternative separately while you consider [only] that important alternative. You must rate how each decision option stacks up. The program first assigns a value of 20 to one of the crucial alternatives. Then you must give a relative number (lower, higher, or equal to 20) to each of the other essential alternatives. When completed, the program displays the alternatives and options in rows and columns on the main program screen. Next, you must determine whether or not you want to change the values. If not, the program will proceed to the evaluation process with the information given. First, the program will determine which alternative is the solution to your problem with the current information provided. The program then displays the items from your list of options in order of importance. Alongside each will be a relative rating with the most relevant alternative given a value normalized at 100.

   Next, if you want to perform a sensitivity analysis to change any values, you may do so, but If not, the program will go to the next following alternative from your alternative list. Then, it will take you through each option on your generated options list for that corresponding alternative, where you will follow through the same process as with the first alternative. The cycle repeats itself until you find the best alternative solution to the current problem under consideration. Finally, you might want to write down the desired result.

   The program will display the analysis results from 30 seconds to a minute. Afterward, it turns everything blank and switches back into standby mode to receive another problem to solve.
