Simplified influence diagram

Detailed Description

Example of a simplified influence diagram developed in building a structured decision-making framework at Ship Island, in this case representing a single decision on whether or not to repair a major breach in Phase B2. Influence diagrams conceptually link system drivers and response, budget and sand constraints, management decisions, and the objectives of the project. A Bayesian (probabilistic) network was developed to statistically evaluate the quantitative impact of possible damage and response decisions on project objectives.
