Part of the Lecture Notes in Medical Informatics book series (LNMED, volume 32)


This chapter discusses Roundsman’s approach to evaluating alternatives (step four of Fig. 1-1). Sections 5.1 through 5.9 present the conceptual basis of this step, a multiattribute model of choice and explanation. Section 5.10 describes the implementation of that model in Roundsman. The final section outlines key features of the model and summarizes its implementation in the Roundsman system.
