The proposed application of decision analysis provides a relatively simple approach to the tunnel exploration problem. The existing knowledge of geology, the possible construction strategies and their costs, the reliability and the cost of considered exploration methods are used to establish if and where exploration is beneficial. The resulting hierarchy of locations where exploration is beneficial and the comparison of expected values of exploration for different methods provides the basis for the selection of a particular site and method. Graphical and numerical means have been created that make the proposed approach a convenient and fast tool in the hands of the decision maker.
