The Projects main focus was to enhance and build better tools for handling complex decision problems with real options models.
01 / 2004 - 12 / 2005


The extensions of the real options modelling which were worked out for the OptionsPorts included the following features:
(i) portfolios of R&D projects to be treated as investment options (start new projects, expand on-going projects, abandon projects); find optimal portfolios;
(ii) mergers and acquisitions to be handled as dynamic and interdependent options cases;
(iii) repositioning and redirection of adaptive production capacity (options) to dynamic and changing market conditions;
(iv) optimal reinvestment roadmaps as options-driven dynamic decision trees and
(v) optimal multiple criteria investment program compositions. The research program was focused on several industries: fine paper products, plywood and steel products.
