42 Elements of Decision Analysis horizontal axis is an ordinal scale. 1, the values along the vertical axis have, to the decision-maker, meaningful preference differences between them. The horizontal axis is ordinal in the sense that red is preferred to yellow; green is preferred to red; blue is preferred to green; black is preferred to blue. Here, we have an ordering of preference only that is preserved. , not meaningful). 1 is known as a piecewise linear single dimensional value function. ” Piecewise linear single dimensional value functions are commonly developed in cases when only a few levels (or scores) define a criterion, such as Car Color.

These outcomes can be listed as elements in a set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. 13 14 Elements of Probability Theory The set of all possible outcomes of an experiment, such as tossing a six-sided die, is called the sample space, which we will denote by . The individual outcomes of are called sample points, which we will denote by ω. An event is any subset of the sample space. An event is simple if it consists of exactly one outcome. Simple events are also referred to as elementary events or elementary outcomes.

Show how the probabilities computed in exercise 16 change. 18. Spare power supply units for a communications terminal are provided to the government from three different suppliers A1 , A2 , and A3 . Suppose 30% come from A1 , 20% come from A2 , and 50% come from A3 . Suppose these units occasionally fail to perform according to their specifications and the following has been observed: 2% of those supplied by A1 fail, 5% of those supplied by A2 fail, and 3% of those supplied by A3 fail. What is the probability any one of these units provided to the government will perform without failure?
