Résumé : In this paper, we present a decision support system which is based on the transferable belief model (TBM), a model to represent someone's degree of belief based on belief functions. The system performs reasoning and decision making by integrating a system for belief propagation and a system for Bayesian decision analysis. The two subsystems are developed within the framework of the valuation-based systems. They are connected through the pignistic transformation as described in the context of the TBM. The system takes as inputs the user's beliefs and utilities, and suggests either the optimal decision or the optimal sequence of decisions. An example concerning a nuclear waste disposal problem will be given to demonstrate the applicability of the system in a real-world domain. © 1996 IEEE.
