Speaker: Max Henrion (Lumina Decision Systems)


Since the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, anything about offshore oil is controversial in California, even what to do with defunct oil platforms. I'll describe how a multidisciplinary team developed an interactive decision analysis model using a multi-attribute value function that enabled conflicting stakeholders to understand the options and arrive at agreement about a solution. This project won the Decision Analysis Practice Award in 2014.
