The distinguishing feature of a deterministic model is that the uncontrollable input values are known in advance. If any of the uncontrollable inputs are uncertain and subject to variation, the model is referred to as a stochastic or probabilistic model. An uncontrollable input to many production planning models is demand for the product. A mathematical model that treats future demand—which may be any of a range of values—with uncertainty would be called a stochastic model.

If salary were the only criterion of importance to you, the alternative selected as “best” would be the one with the highest starting salary. Problems in which the objective is to find the best solution with respect to one criterion are referred to as single-criterion decision problems. Suppose that you also conclude that the potential for advancement and the location of the job are two other criteria of major importance. Thus, the three criteria in your decision problem are starting salary, potential for advancement, and location.
