     18The decision making module has been designed to offer a group a way to post problems and quickly identify and rank solutions.  Group members can post a problem. Members can offer solutions by posting them onto a list.  Users are asked to vote on the alternative solutions they think should be considered. A real time ranked scale of the alternatives is provided to the group reflecting the group's opinion on what is thought to be the best action to take given a problem.  A forum is provided to the users so that they can have discussions and offer others more information, consideration or anything useful.  It's through using the tools provided, Create Problem, Create Options, View the Scale, and the Discussion Forum that provides a seamless way to make take on problems collaboratively.

     22'''Scenario 1''' Feul Resource Allocation - Based off Haiti Earthquake [[BR]]
     23Many groups need gasoline to run generators.  There isn't much gas in the area. Many stakeholders want this/need this gas. Tom is put in charge of allocating and rationing the gasoline.  However, first he needs to identify who needs the gas the most and can logistally get it.  Tom goes to the Sahana and the decision making module.  He first 'Creates the Problem' and is designated as the Moderator.  Tom then sends a request to those stakeholders who are interested in participating.  These members login and are given permissions as Participants.  These participants can list thier known organizations adding to the Options list identifying themselves as needing the feul. Futher the participants can List thier names, and offer a brief description of who they are and why they need the gas.  Harrald works for the Red Cross and needs gas for thier generators.  Lucy works for the UN and needs gas for vehicles to conduct assesments.  They can discuss what their particular needs are, and how long this gas will last them.  Participants can vote on these alternative choices arguing the merits in the Discussion Forum.  Each participant can post further arguments in their own forum space or look at antoher Stakeholder's needs and further determine of that Option.  Upon further investigation of the needs of each Stakeholder, revoting can occur if someone decides.  Lucy read where Harrald needed only 20 gallons which would support the hospital's needs and save lives for the next 3 days.  Lucy needed 200 gallons so the UN could reach the outer limits of the affected area.  However, after Lucy read about Harrald's needs, she determined that the UN could do with less with the 20 gallons than the Red Cross could, so, she revoted in favor of Harrald's needs.  Although no stakeholder was 100% happy with the end results, considerations were made for each other's needs in an organized manner that communicated details of the Stakeholders.  The gas was rationed and this decision was made by Tom based on the final feedback provided through the scale and the number of votes.[[BR]]
