Solve (rollback) using expected value or a utility function
Assess risk attitude using an exponential utility function
Automatically compute Expected Value of Perfect Information
Revise prior probabilities using Bayes rule
Perform sensitivity analysis of cash flows, probabilities, or
risk attitude

With TreePlan decision tree software, you choose commands using
horizontal-bar menus, and you have context-sensitive access to
over 500 lines of on-screen help. TreePlan has a built-in sum-of-
branch-cash-flows model for valuing outcomes.

examples to explain decision analysis concepts and terminology.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
