We understand \best" decisions as dominant ones, giving more bene ts than any other decisions. Dominant decisions correspond, within the family of argumentation frameworks considered, to admissible arguments. We also propose the use of degrees of admissibility of arguments as a heuristic to assess subjectively the value of decisions and rank them from \best" (dominant) to \worst". We extend this method to provide notion of relative value of decisions where preferences over bene ts are taken into account. Finally, we show how our techniques can be successfully applied to the problem of selecting satellite images to monitor oil...
