Abstract : The purpose of this manual is to provide users of the R-SCREEN system with the background material and the detailed instructions necessary to use and interpret the various functions that R-SCREEN provides. The manual also presents the decision-analytic concepts inherent in the R-SCREEN approach, including the assumptions and restrictions concerning its use. Because the manual serve users both skilled and unskilled in the use of decision-analytic methodology, it is prepared in a modular fashion. Thus, whereas the initial sections provide detailed information for the more technically naive or casual user, the last section is direct and unelaborated for those users knowledgeable and skilled in the approach. R-SCREEN is an abbreviation for Rapid Screening of Decision Options, reflecting the system's major area of applicability in the operations directorate of a large military staff.
