Registration and refreshments are ready as of 6:00PM.
Talking Points & Agenda:
• Options provide you with the opportunity but not the obligations to commit. ROA emulates the principle of Options. Flexibility of optimizing the time to start the project would be the outcome of using ROA
• In most large projects, uncertainty in project value expectations is highly dependent on too many assumptions. These assumptions can be fuzzified to conclude better estimation of project values.
• Combining Fuzzy logic with ROA provides a decision making process under uncertainty and with flexibility of choosing the time to start the project.
Learning Objectives:
By the end of the session you should have a better understanding of the applicability of Fuzzy-ROA technique as an alternative to Cost-Benefit/NPV method.
