Development of Systemic Distributed Decision-making Models for Complex Adaptive Socio-technical Systems
Developing new models for making decisions in a decentralized way is essential for collective effectiveness of actions in complex network of human-centric systems. Such models should capture the subjectivity of various decision-makers, the effect of incomplete information, and importance of inter-organizational relationships. A distributed risk model needs to be developed for reducing systemic risk for the entire system. Thesis should provide both conceptual models and its application to a complex network such as an infrastructure system using real data and/or case studies.

- The candidate must have in depth knowledge of a complex network, preferably an infrastructure system, theories of decision analysis, risk analysis and other decision-making models as well as knowledge of governance through setting protocols of interaction and authority. Passing Fundamentals of Enterprise Systems (ES-621) and Governing Development (ES-677) is a pre-requisite for this project.
