  • “Cost”, disbenefit, or disutility, could be:

  • The volume of the item (b’cos the knapsack space is limited)

“Reward”, usefulness, benefit, or utility, could be:

- Your degree of satisfaction

benefits

costs

  • Here, each item is a “project”

  • Each different alternative constitutes a “portfolio”

  • Possible portfolios are:

  • Selection based on following performance measures:

    • Overall usefulness to you

    • Overall usefulness to business

    • Overall weight of all items

    • Overall space taken by all items

By implementing a project instead of another,

- what do I benefit?

- what do I lose?

In terms of the various performance measures (cost, safety, durability, mobility, etc.?)

  • What about Uncertainty?

    • For each project, impacts shown below are not fixed (certain) but have a range of values (uncertainty)


Summing up l.jpg

Uncertainty-Based Tradeoff Analysis for Integrated Transportation Investments

Summing Up . . .

  • Evaluation and Decision making based on multiple objectives has potential to:

    • Enable analysis of trade-offs among performance measures

    • Enable analysis of trade-offs among facility types

    • Include more stakeholders (users, community, etc.) in decision-making process

    • Enable more direct inclusion of stakeholder concerns

    • Reduce biased/subjective/parochial decision-making
