Textbook Problem

Is the Queensland decision regarding where to locate chicken farms an example of a satisficing model? Why or why not?

Program Plan Intro

Problem solving process:

  • The decision making phase of problem solving is been divided into three phases:
    • Intelligence:
      • It denotes first stage of decision making.
      • The potential problems or chances are been defined in this stage.
    • Design:
      • It denotes second stage of decision making.
      • The alternative solutions are been developed to problem and feasibility is evaluated.
    • Choice:
      • It denotes third stage of decision making.
      • It requires choosing a course of action.
  • The problem solving process goes outside decision making and includes other stages too.
  • The stages involved in problem-solving process after decision making is shown below:
    • Implementation stage:
      • It denotes fourth stage of problem-solving.
      •  A solution is been put into effect in this stage.
    • Monitoring stage:
      • It denotes final stage of problem-solving.
      • The decision makers assess implementation.

Satisficing model:

  • A satisficing model finds a good problem solution, although it may not be best problem solution.
  • It is used when modeling the problem properly to achieve optimal decision would be difficult, complex or costly.
  • It does not look at all possible solutions but to those that gives good results.
  • A travelling salesman problem denotes a sample of satisficing model.
Program Explanation

Queensland decision for locating chicken farms:

  • “No”, Queensland decision concerning where to locate chicken farms is not an example of satisficing model.
  • It is used when modeling the problem properly to achieve optimal decision will be difficult, complex or costly...
