A#) *hipmanagement trades their ship different port in the world and takes care of different cargo on board. *o they need so many $arine /fficers and $arine 1ngineer to handle their fleet and they need to recruit from different nationalities. 3or easier understanding we need to shortly discuss rapidly increasing global marine market and shortage of marine academy for building up marine officer and engineers. 3or the different causes and present view maritime business is one of the best competitive businesses in the world. Due to huge shortage of marine officer and engineer many shipping company are facing problem for availability of mariner to recruit their ship. *hipping companies are facing problem for different reasons. !hese are... 4apidly expansion of shipping business in each year. Increasing number of ship in each year. Increasing "uality mariner but no similarity of increasing number of ship. 3or this result have a great scarcity of mariner world wide. In this competitive situation mariners are often asking higher wages. !hey are asking different personal opportunity when they are on leave. !hey are going out of control as they know they very important.

In this complex situation A#) *hipmanagement *ingapore decides to recruit crew on board to review from different nationality such as #angladesh India 5akistan 6krainian Indonesian and 5ilipino. In this case problem is 7 # C "hipmanagement $ill "elect $hich %ationalities &or Their "hip'(

"tep 4: Developing #lternatives: !he fourth step re"uires the decision maker to list viable alternatives that could resolve the problem. !his is the step where a decision maker wants to be creative in coming up with possible alternatives. &owever no attempt is made to evaluate the alternatives %ust yet only to list them. !he managers of A#) *hipmanagement *ingapore identified six nationalities for recruiting marine officer and marine engineers to their ship. !hey will identify which nationalities will best one for their safety on board and profitable. !hey select marine officer and marine engineers of India #angladesh 5akistan 6krainian Indonesian and 5ilipino. "tep 5: #naly6ing #lternative: /nce the alternatives have been identified a decision maker must analyze each on. #y evaluating it against the criteria established in steps 8 and step =. 3rom this comparison the strengths and weaknesses of each alternative become evident. !able-89 shows the assessed values that A#) *hipmanagement *ingapore gave each of their six alternatives. 0eep in mind that the rating given the six nationalities listed in !able-89 are based on the personal assessment made by A#) *hipmanagement *ingapore.

*ome assessments can be done ob%ectively. !he assessment of display "uality is more of a personal %udgment. !he point is that most decisions by managers involve %udgments-the criteria chosen in step 8 the weights given to the criteria in step = and the evaluation of alternatives in step A. !able-=9 represents only an assessment of the six alternatives against the decision criteria. It does not reflect the weighting done in step =. If managers multiply each alternative !able-8 by its weights !able-= you get !able-B. !he sum of these scores represents an evaluation of each alternative against both the established criteria and weights.

In A#) *hipmanagement *ingapore the managers of this company would choose the #angladeshi <ationalities $arine /fficer and $arine 1ngineer because it scored highest E=,-F on the basis of the criteria identified the weights given to the criteria. *o #angladeshi <ational $ariner is the best alternatives of among those nationalities. "tep 8: +mplementing the #lternative: *tep , is concerned with putting the decision into action by conveying the decision to those affected by it and getting their commitment to it. ;e do know that if the people who must implement a decision participate in the process they are more likely to enthusiastically support the outcome than if you %ust tell them what to do. Another thing manager also may need to do during the implementation process is to reassess the environment for any changes especially if the decision is one that takes a longer period of time to implement. After rating the available options according to criteria at the seventh step try to combine different options that are available to you and see whether you can come up with a better solution instead of %ust choosing one option. Gou also have to summarize the results you got for each option to make the final decision. "tep 9: :val!ating Decision :&&ectiveness !his is the final stage where you have to make the ultimate decision. #efore you do this it is important to go through all the steps and recheck all the information. !his would be beneficial for delaying the time of taking the final decision if you find any missing information. /ne very important thing that you have to keep in mind is that every decision you take would have some level of risk. 0nowing the potential risk involved in the decision one makes would aid in preparing for the problem that arises with the decision.
