A Study on Competence Sets Expansion Facing on Engineering Management Decision

Junwen FENG


Engineering management decision making is a complicated system problem whose traits are multiple persons and multiple objective. There are much uncertain influence factors during its decision making process which requires decision-makers and participants expanding their competence set. Competence set expansion refers to decision-makers and participants to make decision of expanding from the obtained competence set to the required one of resolving problem on a particular issue in a limited time. This paper establishes the multiple persons and multiple objective competences set expansion model combining with the traits of engineering management decision making, it can lay a necessary theoretical foundation of research on engineering management decision making and analysis problem.

Key words: Decision model; Multi-person and multi-objective; Competence set expansion


Decision model; Multi-person and multi-objective; Competence set expansion
