CET720 Decision Analysis

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



In today's fast-moving technological world, the need for sound, rational decision making by business, industry, and government is apparent. This course enables learners to appreciate the process of making rational, consistent decisions, notably under conditions of uncertainty. At the end of the course, learners are expected to be able to carry out decision making using a rational process to select the best of several alternatives.

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Computer Control and Automation
- FlexiMasters  in Computer Control and Automation

Upon completion, learners should:

1. Carry out decision making under certainty using analytic hierarchy process and compute the consistency ratio;

2. Carry out decision making under risk using methods of decision tree and utility function and;

3. Carry out decision making under uncertainty using different criteria depending on the situations.

Decision making under certainty

Analytic Hierarchy Process. Consistency ratio.

Decision making under risk

Decision tree. Utility theory. Attitude towards risk.

Decision making under uncertainty

Criterion of pessimism. Criterion of optimism. Hurwicz criterion. Criterion of regret. Laplace criterion.
