2009 HRA INCOSE/SCEA Hampton Roads Decision Analysis and Its Applications to Systems Engineering Conference

The Hampton Roads Area (HRA) INCOSE chapter and the Hampton Roads SCEA chapter co-hosted the Hampton Roads Decision Analysis and Its Applications to Systems Engineering Conference on 17-18 November, 2009 in Newport News, VA. The conference was sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, Reed Consulting, Futron, Old Dominion University, and The George Washington University and had approximately 45 attendees from California, Mississippi, Ohio, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia and the Washington DC metropolitan area. The conference featured 15 presentations across four subject tracks – Decision Theory; Decision Analysis & Systems Engineering; Decision Tools; and Decision Management – and there was also a student decision analysis poster presentation.

This year’s Decision Analysis theme was especially fitting because of the topic’s linkages to cost estimating and analysis. As budgets continue to tighten, planning and analysis is critical to ensuring that constrained resources are applied optimally and that program and budget decisions can be justified.  Decision analysis plays an important role in this process by providing sound methodologies and tools to improve the quality of decision making and to enable organizations to better understand and justify the underlying rationale for a decision. This conference was a huge success in introducing Decision Analysis theory, analysis tools, management examples, and industry points of contact.  Any questions regarding the conference should be directed to Thomas (Tad) Walls, Jr, HRA INCOSE Chapter President and to Brian Bazil, HR SCEA Chapter President.
