|Abstract: ||The present disclosure is directed to a decision support system or tool
based on a Bayesian Network (BN) framework. The diagnostic support tool
is created by using advanced Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA)
method(s) to construct Bayesian Networks (BNs) that form a Bayesian
Decision Support Process (BDSP) to provide science-based decision support
for understanding and managing events in complex systems. In an
embodiment, the PRA method(s) may include Discrete Dynamic Event Trees
(DDETs) and simulations.
