Abstract : Good answers to hard questions require well-designed analyses. A well-designed analysis begins with a definition of the problem, a clarifying of the objectives, and results in a breaking down of the problem into workable components to which a combination of both expert judgment and these new mathematical tools can be brought to bear to provide a sound basis for intelligent decision making.
