    3 A module to improve the ability to make decisions in complex scenarios.  This module considers a problem and helps a group discuss and rank a group of alternatives into a ranked list which provides information on the items in respect to one another (how much more one is desired over the other) and also considers uncertainty by showing the users how the items in the list are affected.
     3The Decision Making module is designed to support decision making by large groups of Crisis Management Experts.  It guides experts to generate, debate and creates a ranked list of alternative solutions that reflects the group's opinion.
    55=== Summary ===
    66Increasingly, extreme events demand large groups of experts distributed in both location and time to communicate, plan, and coordinate actions. When responding to extreme events, very often there are both alternative actions that might be considered and far more requests for actions than can be executed immediately. The relative desirability of each option for action could be a collaborative expression of a significant number of emergency managers and experts trying to manage the most desirable alternatives at any given time, in real time. This same decision process could be used for a number of tasks but will be designed for distributed dynamic decision making during time critical phases of extreme events. This is because our proposed system is specially designed to save time, remove ambiguities, and decrease uncertainty, major challenges described in the literature on time critical decision making during the volatile time critical phases of emergency.
     8=== Definitions ===
     10'''Phase I'''- will be used to refer to the first build of the system.  This is testing how all of the functionality play together and tests to see if, together this improves group decision making ability in an online asynchronous environment.
     12'''Subjects''' will be used synonymously with Users and Experts.  This is created for Experts who are Users of the system and Subjects of the study.
