In practice we are often forced to propose effective algorithm of decision, without having a desirable description of the situation, into which such an algorithm should be fitted, at our disposal. As the set of possible decisions is known in advance, incomplete description of the situation can result from a) the lack of sufficient knowledge about the information source which comes into the input of a system realizing the decision algorithm, or b) the lack of knowledge about the mechanism that ascribes losses to the individual decision (in some cases both simultaneously).
