Expert judgment is used in response to an enormous diversity of technical problems. The expert is often required to perform a role when other sources, such as measurement, observations, experimentation, or simulation are unavailable or not widely agreed upon. However, many problems are faced in translating expert judgment into reliable and unbiased solutions. With the correct elicitation and analysis techniques, Meyer and Booker show that using expert judgment can be infinitely more reliable and efficient.**The subject of this book is analyzing and eliciting expert judgment for practical applications. The authors provide guidelines for formal elicitation and analysis, with particular reference to methods developed in the field of human cognition and communication. They also outline the principle which proscribes that elicitation and analysis techniques should not be arbitrarily adopted but should always be dependent on the experts and their domain and on the way humans actually think. The book will allow even novice readers to design appropriate methods for their own particular application according to this principle.
