Summary Sentence: Question selection and resolvability for imprecise multi-attribute alternative selection

Full Summary: Question selection and resolvability for imprecise multi-attribute alternative selection

A facilitator asks a decision maker questions and obtains responses in order to help the decision maker to select a most powerful alternative. The facilitator must decide what question to ask next and when to terminate the question-response process. We model this problem as a Markov decision process. Conditions are presented that guarantee a finite representation of the cost function and hence the potential computability of an optimal policy for question selection. We also present results helpful in determining when further questioning is unlikely to be useful.
