RDM– decision trees unravelling the mystery

I think one of the aspects that I like about decision trees are the fact that they are flexible in nature. Decision tees can always be modifies from their orginial structure as and when we get more information and understanding of the problem and as the future scenarios unfold. To me, decision trees are also simple to use. Sometimes, problems can be too wordy and this is when decision tree helps us break the problem down into smaller prices and give it a structure.  Moreover, they bring to light many of the hidden elements of a problem that we take for granted or will not take into consideration otherwise.

Also, the pictorial view of a the decision trees make a problem look more appealing than otheriwse. I think decision trees really help in unravelling problems, I see them like simple problem solving code breakers for a very complex problem. More scenarios you unravel, more you are preapared for the future. All you have to do in future as the scenarios unfold is to go back to the decision tree and measure the result (ofcourse, provided you previously taken the scenario into consideration).

  1. Hii Aditii, I completely agree with you, one think I really like about decision tree is that this method useful to comprehend the decision path from beginning until the end project, which eventually allow me to analyse potential risks and returns of every alternative decision. I also agree that decision tree help in unraveling problems, specifically if its used since initial stage of the project.

  2. interesting findings…i think the decision trees are useful because it lists out all possible consequences…decisions need not to be made right now..however, it requires sufficient information as sometims…the %of occurance or the cost can not be estimated…..

  3. very true…..but the only problem that i see is that as it is based on probabilities…one cannot be 100% sure…

  4. Agreed Roy Boy. However, our job is to prepare the best we can for out future, and this is when decision tree steps in and helps us predict an outcome for every scenario. You can never predict future.
