2 Summary of Decision Analysis Applications in the Operations Research Literature, 1990 - 2001 1. INTRODUCTION This technical report summarizes applications of decision analysis that appeared in major English language operations research (OR) journals and other closely related journals from 1990 through 2001. The primary purpose of this report is to provide backup information for Keefer et al. (2004), which discusses trends in decision analysis applications. While this technical report stands alone, Keefer et al. (2004) provides analysis that many readers will find useful. Section 2 of this report summarizes the 86 decision analysis application articles by application area, while Section 3 lists those application articles that emphasize specific methodological and implementation issues, and Section 4 provides concluding comments. Table I lists application articles by application area, while Table II lists the application articles that emphasize methodological and/or implementation issues by the specific issue that is considered. Note that Tables I and II are identical to Tables II and IV, respectively, in Keefer et al. (2004). Also, the reference list at the end of this technical report is identical to the reference list in that paper, and therefore it includes some items that are not discussed in this technical report. 2. SUMMARY OF DECISION ANALYSIS APPLICATIONS This section summarizes the decision analysis applications articles published in major English language operations research and closely related journals for the period 1990-2001. The following journals were exhaustively reviewed from 1990 through 2001 to determine decision analysis application articles. (The numbers in parentheses are the number of application articles identified in each journal.) The selection criteria used to identify these articles are described in Keefer et al. (2004). Decision Sciences (1) European Journal of Operational Research (0) IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management (4) IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (1) Interfaces (40) Journal of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (6) Journal of the Operational Research Society (1) Management Science (4) Military Operations Research (8) Omega, The International Journal of Management Science (1) Operations Research (11) Operations Research Letters (0) Reliability Engineering and System Safety (2) Research Technology Management (2) Risk Analysis (4) Theory and Decision (1)
