Description: In order to evaluate alternative plans, wildland management planners must consider many objectives, such as timber production, recreational use, and community stability. The method presented utilizes the type of qualitative and intuitive information widely available to wildland management planners, and structures this information into a format suitable for decisionmaking. The method makes possible the determination of a measure of overall desirability for alternative plans, and permits the evaluation of plans under alternative value systems. Alternatives are compared through a small set of values assigned to each one. Each number in the set represents a measure of desirability not directly comparable to the others. The planner assigns weights to each measure and obtains a unique number for each alternative. The method is simple to use and flexible, to permit modifications as planners gain expertise in its use.
