Example text

The curve now reflects the policymakers’ preference for alternatives that save money and aversion to those that increase costs. 42) reflects the policymakers’ dissatisfaction with maintaining status quo costs and their preference for cost savings. Correspondingly, alternative C receives a lower score because it represents a significant cost increase, and alternative B a higher one because it brings significant savings. 1 compares the scores with and without the single-value function. The difference between scores represents the policy significance of the change in costs from lower to higher.

Thus, in this example, we would evaluate three alternatives against five objectives and derive 15 values. 3 shows how the three alternatives scored against the five objectives. We derive these values in a manner similar to the one we used for objective 1. At this point, we could simply average values to determine which alternative best accomplishes the objective set—the one with the highest average score. But that approach assumes that all objectives have equal value, and we know from the interview with the policymakers that they regard some objectives as much more important than others.

Many of the objectives initially suggested do not appear in the final set. Throughout the process of identifying objectives, we encountered problems typical of such efforts. Objectives may not be clearly envisioned. Multiple objectives may conflict with one another, and objectives are frequently difficult to distinguish from means to accomplish them. For example, total quality management or rapid promotion may be proffered as objectives. However, each actually pursues another goal. Total quality management improves product reliability, which in turn yields increased customer satisfaction.
