How to Use
The downloaded decision tree includes only two levels of decisions and outcomes. Expand or contract as needed. Replace the indicators with actual descriptions of the decisions or the outcome.
To add new decisions or outcomes, select the square or circle tool as appropriate from the Drawing menu and place it at the appropriate place. Link the same to the previous node by an arrow from the drawing tool. To enter text, place a text box atop the circle or rectangle. To delete a node, click on the rectangle, circle, or arrow, and press delete.
A completed decision tree provides a visual overview of the various options available, and help in identifying the best possible path. Assigning numerical values to each line help quantify the path, further facilitating decision-making.
One important consideration when drawing a decision tree is to input specific data and values. Providing vague alternatives can lead to faulty decision trees, negating the very purpose of making the effort.
