This paper investigates an approach of decision making internally in an agent where a decision is based on preference and expectation. The approach uses a logic for qualitative decision theory proposed by Boutilier to express such notions. To make readily use of this we describe a simple method for generating preference and expectation models that respect certain rules provided by the agents, and we briefly discuss how to integrate the approach into an existing agent programming language.
