The Decision Analysis and Resolution (DAR) Process :  The Decision Analysis and Resolution (DAR) Process Terry Bahill Systems and Industrial Engineering University of Arizona terry@sie.arizona.edu ©, 2005-07, Bahill This file is located at http://www.sie.arizona.edu/sysengr/slides/ CMMI:  CMMI The CMMI model is a collection of best practices from diverse engineering companies. Improvements to our organization will come from process improvements, not from people improvements or technology improvements. CMMI provides guidance for improving an organization’s processes. One of the CMMI process areas is Decision Analysis and Resolution, DAR. DAR:  DAR Programs and Functions select the decision problems that require DAR and incorporate them in their program plans (e.g. SEMPs). DAR is a BAE SYSTEMS common process. Common processes are tools that the user gets, customizes and uses. DAR is invoked throughout the whole program lifecycle whenever a critical decision is to be made. DAR is invoked by IPT leads on programs, financial analysts, program core teams, etc. Invoke the DAR Process in Webster work instructions, in gate reviews, in phase reviews or with other triggers, which can be used anytime in the system life cycle. Webster:  Webster BAE’s common processes are established by SP.12.15.02. Typical decisions:  Typical decisions Decision problems that may require a formal decision process Trade studies (eng_cat.shtml#GU0238) Bid/no-bid Make-reuse-buy (PW.10.01.01A017.html) Fagan inspection versus checklist inspection (FM.05-1077.xls) Tool selection Vendor selection Cost estimating Purpose:  Purpose “In all decisions you gain something and lose something. Know what they are and do it deliberately.” A Simple Model for Human Decision Making, Called Image Theory:  A Simple Model for Human Decision Making, Called Image Theory References:  References The following description of image theory is based on Beach and Connolly (2005) and Bruce Gissing’s Roadmap to Business Excellence. L. R. Beach and T. Connolly, The Psychology of Decision Making: People in Organizations, Sage Publications, Thousand Oaks, CA, 2005. B. Gissing, The Roadmap to Business Excellence, http://sie.arizona.edu/sysengr/sie554/BruceGissing/RoadMap.ppt, 2005. A. T. Bahill and B. Gissing, Re-evaluating systems engineering concepts using systems thinking, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part C: Applications and Reviews, SMC-28(4): 516-527, 1998. Image theory*:  Image theory* Decision Makers (DMs) code their knowledge into three images. The value image contains principles of behavior. The trajectory image is the agenda of goals. The strategic image contains the plans for implementing the goals. The value image:  The value image consists of the DM’s vision, mission, values, morals, ethics, beliefs, evaluation criteria and standards for how things should be and how people ought to behave. Collectively these are called principles. They limit the goals that are worthy of pursuit and acceptable ways of pursuing these goals. Potential goals and actions that contradict the principles will be unacceptable. It is called the value image because it represents the DM’s vision about the state of events that conforms most closely to his or her principles. The trajectory image:  The trajectory image is the agenda of goals the DM wants to achieve. The goals are dictated by the problem statement, principles, opportunities, desires, competitive issues and gaps encountered in the environment. The goals are fed back to the value image. The DM’s goal agenda is called the trajectory image, because it is his or her vision about how the future should unfold. The strategic image:  The strategic image contains the plans for implementing the goals. Each plan has two aspects: tactics are the concrete behavioral aspects that deal with local environment conditions, forecasts are the anticipation of the future that describe what might result if the tactics are successful. The plans are also fed back to the value image. The collection of plans is called the strategic image, because it represents the DM’s vision of what he or she is trying to do to achieve the goals on the trajectory image. Framing*:  Framing* means embedding observed events in a context that gives them meaning. The DM uses contextual information to probe his or her memory to find image constituents that are relevant to the decision at hand. This provides information about the goals and plans that were previously pursued in this context. If a similar goal is being pursued this time, then the plan that was used before may be reused. Two types of decisions:  Two types of decisions Adoption decisions determine whether to add new goals to the trajectory image or new plans to the strategic image. Progress decisions determine whether a plan is making progress toward achieving a goal. Adoption decisions:  Adoption decisions A new goal or plan can be added if it is compatible with the DM’s relevant principles, does not introduce unacceptable risk and does not interfere with existing goals or ongoing plans. Adoption decisions are accomplished by screening potential goals and plans one by one in light of relevant principles, existing goals and ongoing plans. If only one option passes screening, it is adopted. If two or more options pass the screen, then a tradeoff study determines the best option from among the survivors. Screening is the more common of these decision mechanism. Progress decisions:  Progress decisions use the plan to forecast the future. If that future includes achieving a goal, then the plan is retained. If the forecast does not include achieving the goal, then the plan is rejected and a new plan is adopted in its place. Two decision mechanisms:  Two decision mechanisms The incompatibility test screens options based on how well they fit the DM’s images. The profitability test focuses on the quality of the outcomes associated with the options. The incompatibility test:  The incompatibility test screens options (plans and goals) based on their incompatibility with constituents* defined in the three images. Each option’s incompatibility increases as a function of the weighted sum of the number of violations.** Violations are defined as negations, contradictions, preventions, retardations or any other form of interference with the realization one of the images’ constituents. If the weighted sum of the violations exceeds some rejection threshold, then the option is rejected, otherwise it is adopted. Profitability test:  Profitability test When more than one option survives the incompatibility screen, the DM chooses the best using a profitability test. The profitability test is not a single decision mechanism. It is a repertory of strategies such as maximizing subjective expected utility, satisficing and performing tradeoff studies. The selected strategy depends on characteristics of the choice, characteristics of the environment, characteristics of the DM. Image theory for organizations*:  Image theory for organizations* Decisions in organizations are made by individual DMs, often forming a consensus. So for organizational decisions, we can use the individual decision making model that we have just developed. The only major addition is the need for a case for change. The need for change*:  The need for change* People do not make good decisions. A careful tradeoff study will help you overcome human ineptitude and thereby make better decisions. Rational decisions*:  Rational decisions* One goal Perfect information The optimal course of action can be described This course maximizes expected value This is a prescriptive model. We tell people that, in an ideal world, this is how they should make decisions. Satisficing*:  Satisficing* When making decisions there is always uncertainty, too little time and insufficient resources to explore the whole problem space. Therefore, people cannot make rational decisions. The term satisficing was coined by Noble Laureate Herb Simon in 1955. Simon proposed that people do not attempt to find an optimal solution. Instead, they search for alternatives that are good enough, alternatives that satisfice. Humans are not rational*1:  Humans are not rational*1 Mark Twain said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” Humans are often very certain of knowledge that is false. What American city is directly north of Santiago Chile? If you travel from Los Angeles to Reno Nevada, in what direction would you travel? Most humans think that there are more words that start with the letter r, than there are with r as the third letter. Illusions*:  Illusions* We call these cognitive illusions. We believe them with as much certainty as we believe optical illusions. The Müller-Lyer Illusion*:  The Müller-Lyer Illusion* Humans judge probabilities poorly*:  Humans judge probabilities poorly* Monty Hall Paradox1*:  Monty Hall Paradox1* Monty Hall Paradox2*:  Monty Hall Paradox2* Monty Hall Paradox3*:  Monty Hall Paradox3* Monty Hall Paradox4*:  Monty Hall Paradox4* Monty Hall Paradox5*:  Monty Hall Paradox5* Now here is your problem. Are you better off sticking to your original choice or switching? A lot of people say it makes no difference. There are two boxes and one contains a ten-dollar bill. Therefore, your chances of winning are 50/50. However, the laws of probability say that you should switch. Monty Hall Paradox6*:  Monty Hall Paradox6* The box you originally chose has, and always will have, a one-third probability of containing the ten-dollar bill. The other two, combined, have a two-thirds probability of containing the ten-dollar bill. But at the moment when I open the empty box, then the other one alone will have a two-thirds probability of containing the ten-dollar bill. Therefore, your best strategy is to always switch! Utility:  Utility We have just discussed the right column, subjective probability. Now we will discuss the bottom row, utility Utility:  Utility Utility is a measure of the happiness, satisfaction or reward a person gains (or loses) from receiving a good or service. Utilities are numbers that express relative preferences using a particular set of assumptions and methods. Utilities include both subjectively judged value and the assessor's attitude toward risk. Risk:  Risk Systems engineers use risk to evaluate and manage bad things that could happen, hazards. Risk is measured with the frequency (or probability) of occurrence times the severity of the consequences. However, in economics and in the psychology of decision making, risk is defined as the variance of the expected value, uncertainty.* Ambiguity, uncertainty and hazards*:  Ambiguity, uncertainty and hazards* Hazard: Would you prefer my forest picked mushrooms or portabella mushrooms from the grocery store? Uncertainty: Would you prefer one of my wines or a Kendall-Jackson merlot? Ambiguity: Would you prefer my saffron and oyster sauce or marinara sauce? Humans are not rational:  Humans are not rational Even if they had the knowledge and resources, people would not make rational decisions, because they do not evaluate utility rationally. Most people would be more concerned with a large potential loss than with a large potential gain. Losses are felt more strongly than equal gains. Which of these wagers would you prefer to take?* $2 with probability of 0.5 and $0 with probability 0.5 $1 with probability of 0.99 and $1,000,000 with probability 0.00000001 $3 with probability of 0.999999 and -$1,999,997 with probability 0.000001 They all have an expected value of $1 Gains and losses are not valued equally*:  Gains and losses are not valued equally* Subjective expected utility:  Subjective expected utility combines two subjective concepts: utility and probability. Utility is a measure of the happiness or satisfaction a person gains from receiving a good or service. Subjective probability is the person’s assessment of the frequency or likelihood of the event occurring. The subjective expected utility is the product of the utility times the probability. Subjective expected utility theory:  Subjective expected utility theory models human decision making as maximizing subjective expected utility maximizing, because people choose the set of alternatives with the highest total utility, subjective, because the choice depends on the decision maker’s values and preferences, not on reality (e.g. advertising improves subjective perceptions of a product without improving the product), and expected, because the expected value is used. This is a first-order model for human decision making. Sometimes it is called Prospect Theory*. Why teach tradeoff studies?:  Why teach tradeoff studies? Because emotions, cognitive illusions, biases, fallacies, fear of regret and use of heuristics make humans far from ideal decision makers. Using tradeoff studies judiciously can help you make rational decisions. We would like to help you move your decisions from the normal human decision-making lower-right quadrant to the ideal decision-making upper-left quadrant. The Decision Analysis and Resolution Proces (DAR):  The Decision Analysis and Resolution Proces (DAR) Specific goals (SG):  Specific goals (SG) A specific goal applies to a process area and addresses the unique characteristics that describe what must be implemented to satisfy the process area. The specific goal for the DAR process area is SG 1 Evaluate Alternatives. Specific practices (SP):  Specific practices (SP) A specific practice is an activity that is considered important in achieving the associated specific goal. Practices are the major building blocks in establishing the process maturity of an organization. When creating a process:  When creating a process the most important facets are illustrating tasks that can be done in parallel suggesting feedback loops including a process to improve the process configuration management A simple tradeoff study:  A simple tradeoff study Decisions:  Decisions Humans make four types of decisions: Allocating resources among competing projects* Making plans, which includes scheduling Negotiating agreements Choosing amongst alternatives Alternatives can be examined in series or parallel. When examined in series it is called sequential search When examined in parallel it is called a tradeoff or a trade study “Tradeoff studies address a range of problems from selecting high-level system architecture to selecting a specific piece of commercial off the shelf hardware or software. Tradeoff studies are typical outputs of formal evaluation processes.”* History:  History Ben Franklin’s letter* to Joseph Priestly outlined one of the first descriptions of a tradeoff study. Tradeoff Study Process*:  Tradeoff Study Process* These tasks are drawn serially, but they are not performed in a serial manner. Rather, it is an iterative process with many feedback loops, which are not shown. Decide if Formal Evaluation is Needed:  Decide if Formal Evaluation is Needed Is formal evaluation needed? SP 1.1:  Is formal evaluation needed? SP 1.1 Companies should have polices for when to do formal decision analysis. Criteria include When the decision is related to a moderate or high-risk issue When the decision affects work products under configuration management When the result of the decision could cause significant schedule delays When the result of the decision could cause significant cost overruns On material procurement of the 20 percent of the parts that constitute 80 percent of the total material costs Guidelines for formal evaluation, SP 1.1:  Guidelines for formal evaluation, SP 1.1 When the decision is selecting one or a few alternatives from a list When a decision is related to major changes in work products that have been baselined When a decision affects the ability to achieve project objectives When the cost of the formal evaluation is reasonable when compared to the decision’s impact On design-implementation decisions when technical performance failure may cause a catastrophic failure On decisions with the potential to significantly reduce design risk, engineering changes, cycle time or production costs Establish Evaluation Criteria:  Establish Evaluation Criteria Establish evaluation criteria* SP 1.2:  Establish evaluation criteria* SP 1.2 Establish and maintain criteria for evaluating alternatives Each criterion must have a weight of importance Each criterion should link to a tradeoff requirement, i.e. a requirement whose acceptable value can be more or less depending on quantitative values of other requirements. Criteria must be arranged hierarchically. The top-level may be performance, cost, schedule and risk. Program Management should prioritize these four criteria at the beginning of the project and make sure everyone knows the priorities. All companies should have a repository of generic evaluation criteria. What will you eat for lunch today?:  What will you eat for lunch today? In class exercise. Write some evaluation criteria that will, help you decide.* Killer trades:  Killer trades Evaluating alternatives is expensive. Therefore, early in tradeoff study, identify very important requirements* that can eliminate many alternatives. These requirements produce killer criteria.** Subsequent killer trades can often eliminate 90% of the possible alternatives. Identify Alternative Solutions:  Identify Alternative Solutions Identify alternative solutions, SP 1.3:  Identify alternative solutions, SP 1.3 Identify alternative solutions for the problem statement Consider unusual alternatives in order to test the system requirements* Do not list alternatives that do not satisfy all mandatory requirements** Consider use of commercial off the shelf and in-house entities*** What will you eat for lunch today?:  What will you eat for lunch today? In class exercise. List some alternatives for today’s lunch.* Select Evaluation Methods:  Select Evaluation Methods Select evaluation methods, SP 1.4:  Select evaluation methods, SP 1.4 Select the source of the evaluation data and the method for evaluating the data Typical sources for evaluation data include approximations, product literature, analysis, models, simulations, experiments and prototypes* Methods for combining data and evaluating alternatives include Multi-Attribute Utility Technique (MAUT), Ideal Point, Search Beam, Fuzzy Databases, Decision Trees, Expected Utility, Pair-wise Comparisons, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Financial Analysis, Simulation, Monte Carlo, Linear Programming, Design of Experiments, Group Techniques, Quality Function Deployment (QFD), radar charts, forming a consensus and Tradeoff Studies Collect evaluation data:  Collect evaluation data Using the appropriate source (approximations, product literature, analysis, models, simulations, experiments or prototypes) collect data for evaluating each alternative. Evaluate Alternatives:  Evaluate Alternatives Evaluate alternatives, SP 1.5:  Evaluate alternatives, SP 1.5 Evaluate alternative solutions using the evaluation criteria, weights of importance, evaluation data, scoring functions and combining functions. Evaluating alternative solutions involves analysis, discussion and review. Iterative cycles of analysis are sometimes necessary. Supporting analyses, experimentation, prototyping, or simulations may be needed to substantiate scoring and conclusions. Select Preferred Solutions:  Select Preferred Solutions Select preferred solutions, SP 1.6:  Select preferred solutions, SP 1.6 Select preferred solutions from the alternatives based on evaluation criteria. Selecting preferred alternatives involves weighing and combining the results from the evaluation of alternatives. Many combining methods are available. The true value of a formal decision process might not be listing the preferred alternatives. More important outputs are stimulating thought processes and documenting their outcomes. A sensitivity analysis will help validate your recommendations. Perform Expert Review:  Perform Expert Review Perform expert review1:  Perform expert review1 Formal evaluations should be reviewed* at regular gate reviews such as SRR, PDR and CDR or by special expert reviews Technical reviews started about the same time as Systems Engineering, in 1960. The concept was formalized with MIL-STD-1521 in 1972. Technical reviews are still around, because there is evidence that they help produce better systems at less cost. The Perform Expert Review process is located at PS0303 Perform expert review2:  Perform expert review2 Technical reviews evaluate the product of an IPT* They are conducted by a knowledgeable board of specialists including supplier and customer representatives The number of board members should be less than the number of IPT members But board expertise should be greater than the IPT’s experience base Who should come to the review?:  Who should come to the review? Program Manager Chief Systems Engineer Review Inspector Lead Systems Engineer Domain Experts IPT Lead Facilitator Stakeholders for this decision Builder Customer Designer Tester PC Server Depending on the decision, the Lead Hardware Engineer and the Lead Software Engineer Present results:  Present results Present the results* of the formal evaluation to the original decision maker and other relevant stakeholders. Put in the PAL:  Put in the PAL Formal evaluations reviewed by experts should be put in the organizational Process Asset Library (PAL) or the Project Process Asset Library (PPAL) (e.g. GDE 11 for M601) Evaluation data for tradeoff studies come from approximations, analysis, models, simulations, experiments and prototypes. Each time better data is obtained the PAL should be updated. Formal evaluations should be designed with reuse in mind. Manage the DAR process:  Manage the DAR process The DAR Process Owner shall manage and improve the DAR process. The DAR Process Owner will establish a change control board and review the DAR Common Process on a regular basis. This is a high-level review of the DAR Common Process. This review must evaluate the activities, status and results of the DAR process. For instance, it might address use of and training for the many methods of performing DAR.

Now change this 5 to a 3 and to a 7. Changing the scores for Familiarity does not change the recommended alternative. This is good. It means the Tradeoff study is robust with respect to these scores. Sensitivity analysis, analytic:  Sensitivity analysis, analytic Compute the six semirelative-sensitivity functions, which are defined as which reads, the semirelative-sensitivity function of the performance index F with respect to the parameter  is the partial derivative of F with respect to  times  with everything evaluated at the normal operating point (NOP). Sensitivity analysis2:  Sensitivity analysis2 For the performance index use the alternative rating for MAUT minus the alternative rating for AHP* F = F1 - F2 = Wt1×S11 + Wt2×S21 – Wt1×S12 –Wt2×S22 Sensitivity analysis3:  Sensitivity analysis3 The semirelative-sensitivity functions* S11 is the most important parameter. So go back and reevaluate it. Sensitivity analysis4:  Sensitivity analysis4 The most important parameter is the score for MAUT on the criterion Ease of Use We should go back and re-evaluate the derivation of that score Example (continued)5:  Example (continued)5 Perform expert review of the tradeoff study. Present results to original decision maker. Put tradeoff study in PAL. Improve the DAR process.

Generic goals are called “generic” because the same goal statement appears in (almost) all process areas. Each process area has only one generic goal for each maturity level. And the generic goal is different for each maturity level. Maturity level 2 generic goal:  Maturity level 2 generic goal GG 2: The DAR process is institutionalized as a managed process. A managed process is a performed process that is planned and executed in accordance with policy; employs skilled people having adequate resources to produce controlled outputs; involves relevant stakeholders; is monitored, controlled, and reviewed; and is evaluated for adherence to its process description. Maturity level 3 generic goal:  Maturity level 3 generic goal GG 3 The DAR process is institutionalized as a defined process. A defined process is establish by tailoring the selected process according to the organization’s tailoring guidelines to meet the needs of a project or organizational function. With a defined process, variability in how the process is performed across the organization is reduced and process assets, data, and learning can be effectively shared. Generic practices (GP):  Generic practices (GP) Generic practices contribute to the achievement of the generic goal when applied to a particular process area. Generic practices are activities that ensure that the processes associated with the process area will be effective, repeatable, and lasting.
