A Comparison of Bayesiann Network and Goal Programming Approaches for National Analysis Module (Fire Program Analysis System - Phase 2)

As part of identifying the best approach to be used for National Analysis, we performed a detailed comparison of Bayesian Belief Network Modeling and Goal Programming approach. A reference problem was identified and then cast as a BBN model and Goal Programming. Results from the analysis were gathered and compiled into a set of recommendations. Since validation is a key to a successful project, we outline some ideas on validating the proposed approach.
