### Re: SMILE.COM GetAllNodes

Here's another way to iterate over an array:

Code: Select all

``````Sub DisplayNodes()

Dim Nodes As Variant
Dim Node As Variant

Range("A1").Select

Nodes = Net.GetAllNodes()

For Each Node in Nodes

ActiveCell.Value = Node
ActiveCell.Offset(1,0).Select

Next Node

End Sub
``````

### Re: SMILE.COM GetAllNodes

I figured it out.

Code: Select all

``````Sub GetNodes()

Dim Nodes As Variant

Nodes = Net.GetAllNodes()

End Sub
``````

Code: Select all

``````Dim Net As SmileNetwork		'Has to be accessible to the function below

Set Net = New SmileNetwork

``````

### SMILE.COM GetAllNodes

Can you show me how the SMILE.COM GetAllNodes method works?

### Re: Decision Analysis

This gives me the building blocks. Am I missing anything?

If not, I now need to create a real-life example.

Here's one where chance nodes influence the utility nodes.

### Re: Decision Analysis

Here's one with options, sub options, and sub-sub options; with criteria for each.

### Re: Decision Analysis

Here's a model that contains non-independent criteria. I added MAU nodes that compute a weighted average.

### Re: Decision Analysis

Here's a network that does simple scoring with utility nodes and a decision node. Weights are equal.

### Re: Decision Analysis

Something else you can do with a GeNie BBN: You may have non-independent criteria that you want to keep. With a BBN you can tier dependent criteria into a single child node so that they don't over-influence the outcome. One other point: The use of Noisy Adder nodes in the attached network doesn't ta...

### Decision Analysis

The typical method for decision analysis is to define criteria with associated weights and then score alternatives. It's a very flawed technique. 1. Weights and scores characterize subjective assessments as discrete values. 2. If multiple criteria are not independent you end up inadvertently overwei...

### Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

While I look forward to your bugfix but I think I will use my approach where I create a special CPT node reflecting the sampled value of 'beta distribution' node. The discretizer node is a good approach bit I'd rather not have to set and clear evidence just to get discrete beliefs.

### Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

Here's another version that takes mean and standard deviation as input rather than alpha and beta, which is more intuitive.

### Re: SMILE.COM for Continuous and hybrid models

I set up a network with a discretizer node. I noticed that when I discretize the continuous node I can no longer get the mean and standard deviation. I want all three: Mean, standard deviation, and discretized beliefs. In order to do that I'd need to set then clear evidence for the discretizer node....

### Re: SMILE.COM Hepar Excel Application

I found something interesting with this architecture, where Excel is used as a front end to smile. All the evidence for the Hepar network is stored in Excel worksheets. When you load a worksheet evidence is propagated into the network. The network serves as a template, which captures the logic for h...
