Model Assessment For Quality Decisions

F. Mili & M.P. Polis
Paradoxes are commonly encountered in decision making; they arise due to a mismatch between reality and expectations. They are often hard to detect and prevent apriori because they arise from tacit expectations. In this paper we propose an approach to capturing expectations for the purpose of reducing paradoxes. Decision methods are evaluated with respect to expectations distinguishing between those that are legitimate and those, called paradoxical expectations, which lead to paradoxes.
