Abstract


As products become more and more complex and have to be developed in less time, decision makers are facing the need to achieve good decisions efficiently. While some of the decision making processes are easy to undergo and their respective consequences can be identified with precision, other decision situations are characterized by complex steps and by consequences which are hard to predict.

Therefore, the objective of this paper is to identify, analyze and evaluate conflicting decision making situations whose consequences are difficult to predict. The goal is to elaborate on a methodology in order to categorize and structure decision making situations and their respective consequences. This methodology is intended to support decision makers in evaluating decision making situations with regard to their interconnectivity and potential consequences.

Future steps are the application of the overall methodology in a case study and its improvement due to the lessons learned.
