It is quite common in the practice of decision analysis to assess percentiles such as the 10th (P10), 50th (P50) and 90th (P90). How does one then translate these assessments into a probability distribution that can be used in analyses? In this paper [$], Drs. Keelin and Powley (SDG) develop a new procedure to automate task in a flexible and powerful way.
