  3. Identify the change events that can occur after each decisions]
  4. Develop a tree diagram showing the sequence of decisions and change event


  1. Estimate the probability for each possible outcome of each change event.
  2. Estimate the financial consequence of each possible outcome and decisions alternative .

C.Evaluation and Selection
