Gaming Aids for Resource Managers
Abstract:Development of mathematical models to aid resource managers in decision-making has frequently out-stripped empirical databases. The experience of resource managers and specialists can be used to augment limited databases. The challenge is in integrating expert opinion with empirical data to obtain new information that neither alone possesses. Structured gaming exercises can help. We have drawn from gaming literature and resource management applications, specifically wildfire suppression gaming, to suggest gaming aids for resource managers.
