Module Title : Decision Making Methods and Tools
Module Description : This module provides a general introduction to using various IT-driven tools, software and techniques for decision making support. The module will start off by describing the decision-making process in businesses today, including the hierarchy of decision making responsibilities to address business problems and challenges. It will proceed to cover methods to properly structure business problems and explicitly evaluate multiple criteria. Algorithms and software tools for multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) and its varieties, e.g., analytic hierarchy process (AHP), multi-attribute utility theory (MAUT), Case-Based Reasoning (CBR), Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), etc., will be introduced and explained with appropriate business case studies. The module will be complete with the inclusion of intelligent techniques and tools for decision making and diagnosis, e.g., expert systems, Decision Tree, Bayesian networks etc., and visualization of output to make sense of it all and provide a path to take action and measure results. Examples will also be drawn from various industry domains and applications.
