Dear ORNETers,

Recently, a number of us have been talking about establishing a Decision 
Analysis (DA) Special Interest Group under the umbrella of the OR Society.

The stimulus for this is the observation that there are a number of people 
with interest in, experience of and enthusiasm for DA approaches within 
the UK.  But there is no forum where people can come together and share 
ideas and experiences.  

From the conversations we have had, it seems to us that there is a space 
for a practice-oriented group, centred around helping people apply DA to 
real problems faced by public and private sector organisations.  In order 
to explore this, we are convening a workshop at the LSE on Monday 4th 
June, and would like to invite you to attend.  

The format will be a number of talks by speakers with extensive experience 
of using Decision Analysis in a range of industries and environments.  The 
purpose will be 1) to familiarise people with some of the initiatives 
currently taking place; 2) to get people thinking about how to promote the 
use of DA approaches; and 3) to explore whether it is worth setting up a 
permanent group.

The program for the workshop will be 

1030-1045         Welcome

1045-1145         Decision Analysis case studies: 

Decision Conferencing in Defence (Captain Malcolm Cree, Royal Navy)

An object-oriented approach to technology and deployment decisions: an 
aerospace example (Andy Harrison, Smith Bayes)

1145-1230         Chaired discussion 

1230-1400         Break for lunch

1400-1500         Selling Decision Analytic consultancy (Jan Paul van 
Driel, Strategic Decisions Group)

Experiences of promoting multi-criteria decision analysis in DTI (Andy 
Jones, Department of Trade and Industry)

1500-1545         Chaired discussion

1545-1630         Ways forward

The venue will be in room G1 in the 20 Kingsway Building at the LSE (note 
that the entrance to this building is in Portugal St 
http://www.lse.ac.uk/resources/mapsAndDirections/findingYourWayAroundLSE.ht
m).  There is no fee for attendance. You donít have to be a current member 
of the OR Society to attend.

If you wish to attend this event, we would be grateful if you could RSVP 
to Alec ([log in to unmask]) by Friday 25th May.  

Please feel free to forward this on to anyone you feel may be interested.  
Apologies for cross-posting.
