Detailed study and accurate analysis of topics such as risk, resilience, redundancy, exposure, consequences, and hazards associated with infrastructure requires adherence to several attributes noted in the following. Improper consideration of these attributes may lead to incomplete and/or inaccurate results and will lead to (wrong) decisions with potential negative consequences. Attributes of interest include the following:

Realistic and accurate modeling linkages/interactions among variables

Accommodation of uncertainties associated with different variables

Accurate modeling of observations at any given time (snapshot or a time period)

Accommodation of objective and subjective variables and pertinent combinations

Seamless accommodation of decision under uncertainty (DUU) while accounting for all of the above attributes

Ease of simulating complex models

Ease of changing, adding to, or trimming complex models
