We consider multi-attribute utility functions, particularly applied to the choice of a design and sample sizes for an experiment. We extend earlier work, which allowed imprecision in the trade-offs between attributes, to allow imprecision also in the shape of marginal utility functions. The method is illustrated with a simple example involving a two-group binomial experiment.
