- Decision-making, Causality reasoning
We present a framework for decision-making in relation to disaster management. The use of causality reasoning based on the temporal evolution of a scenario provides a natural way to chain meaningful events and possible states of the system. There is usually several ways to analyze a problem and several possible strategies to follow as a solution and it is also often the case that information originating in different sources can be inconsistent. Therefore we allow the specification of possible conflicting situations as they are a typical element in disaster management. A decision procedure to decide on those conflicting situations is explained which not only provides a framework for the assistance of one decision-maker but also how to handle opinions from a hierarchy of decision-makers.
