Commanders in the Army are responsible for making critical decisions where a poor choice can have disastrous consequences for the mission. These consequences can range from monetary cost to loss of human life. To make the optimal decision often requires a complete knowledge of the mission scenario. Complicating the matter is that information is often hard to obtain and time is limited, therefore the Commander must quickly prioritize which information to gather and analyze given their time-sensitive requirements. To address this challenge, we propose to design a Data Analysis Tool to Assess Value of Information for Decision-making (DATAVOID). DATAVOID uses a user interface that enables the Commander to formalize their decision-making process to optimize prioritized information requirements by probabilistically assessing the Value of Information (VoI) for any given piece of data.
