Initial data (from LnS) and uncertainties. On the left, the original LnS result space is presented. The result is depicted as a blue dot with uncertainty bars, the results domain is subdivided into four areas: “No-Go”, “Research on risks”, “Go” and “Research on benefits”. On the right side, the result area is zoomed in and a bubble chart is presented which depicts all possible results due to uncertainty. The area of each bubble represents its point’s probability. The three vertical “stripes” which are clearly visible in the right side are due to the fact that there is only one benefits’ unknown which has three possible different states while the higher number of points along each stripe derives from the integration of the four risks’ unknowns permutations
