12. DECIDE Model
used for alignment

Many CFIT accident reports discuss the lack of good decision making on the part of the pilot or flight crew. The following D-E-C-I-D-E model is included in many manuals and books on decision making.

  • a. Detect change (or identify problem).
  • b. Estimate significance (of the change).
  • c. Choose the (best) objective or outcome.
  • d. Identify options (that meet objective or desired outcome).
  • e. Do best option.
  • f. Evaluate (the outcome--if the outcome is not what is desired then do a new DECIDE model).
