Methods of Decision Making [chapter]

2006 Handbook of Decision Making  
Systems studied and implemented in biological and agricultural domains are characterized by manifestations of various forms of uncertainty. These include insufficient or incomplete knowledge, vague information and approximate and intuitive methods for problem solving. In these cases, any modeling and automation of a decision making process should provide mechanisms for representing and managing uncertain knowledge. In this paper, we present a conceptual framework for incorporating uncertainty

Such systems represent a more realistic approach, taking into account the available information, without enforcing an artificial accuracy. Additionally, through their application to real world problems, they provide a better insight into the algorithms and mathematical models used.
