The problems I encountered on the begining of my occupation as an operations researcher, and later as a specialist, made me notice that there have been a few obstacles on objectivity in decision-aiding. for my part, 5 significant features needs to be considered: 1) The borderline (or frontier) among what's and what's now not possible is frequently fuzzy. additionally, this borderline is often transformed in gentle of what's came upon from the research itself. 2) in lots of real-world difficulties, the "decision maker D" doesn't relatively exist as somebody really in a position to make adecision. frequently, numerous humans (actors or stakeholders) participate in the choice method, and it's important to not confuse the person who ratifies adecision with the so-called determination maker within the determination ai ding method.
