Summary

This report attempts to define and conceptualize the essential logic of the decision-making process which planners follow. The report proposes a look at decision-making theory to see if there exists some conceptualization of decision making which can be varied to fit the context in which decisions must be made. To provide for situational adjustments, a behavioral character must be graphed into a normative framework to provide for some measure of deviation from the norm that is being sought. In building this conceptual framework, two criteria were followed: (1) Throughout the model, logic and consistency must prevail; and (2) the resulting model must be useful to the problems at hand. The final conceptualization is a piecing together of current decision theory and its application to the planning situation. A literature review makes up the body of the document, followed by the proposed model and a summary of its shortcomings and implications. (LN)
