In some decision situations, quantitative models embedded in a Decision Support System (DSS) can help managers make better decisions. Model-driven DSS use algebraic, decision analytic, financial, simulation, and optimization models to provide decision support. This category of DSS is continuing to evolve, but research can resolve a variety of behavioral and technical issues that impact system performance, acceptance and adoption. This article includes a brief survey of prior research. It… Expand
Support Systems for Decision Makers: Impact on Performance
TLDR
This study examines several decision process factors and their impact on company performance via Decision Support Systems (DSS) and shows that the perceived usefulness of the system correlates to improved company performance, as does the level of user satisfaction with the system. Expand
Spreadsheet-Based Decision Support Systems
TLDR
Spreadsheets are a great option for developing many DSS applications since they are available with almost any operational system and have many features that are relatively easy to learn and can be implemented for a large variety of problems. Expand
A review of analytical models, approaches and decision support tools in project monitoring and control
Abstract This paper reviews the problems, approaches and analytical models on project control systems and discusses the possible research extensions. We focused on literature in Earned Value AnalysisExpand
Real-World Decision Support Systems
TLDR
There is an ongoing need for more decision support case study field research that includes documenting decision support impacts and more descriptive and technical information about specific DSS will be helpful in explaining the variability of these technology artifacts. Expand
Decision Support Systems Discipline: Achievements and Needs
TLDR
The overriding theme is that Decision Support Systems is a viable field of academic study, but that more theory development is needed and that more effort needs to be made to inform practitioners about the findings of DSS empirical research. Expand
Designing decision support systems for value-based management: A survey and an architecture
TLDR
This paper develops a comprehensive approach to designing model-driven DSS for VBM and presents a unified modeling approach for value-based performance and risk optimization that implements Value Added performance metrics and applies robust optimization methods to mitigate risk impact. Expand
Decision-making in IT service management: a simulation based approach
TLDR
A novel decision-making framework whose main component is a specific methodology to systematically build simulation models that help solve real-world organization problems applying ITIL recommendations is proposed. Expand
A Review of Analytical Models , Approaches and Decision Support Tools in Project Monitoring and Control
TLDR
The problems, approaches and analytical models on project control systems and the possible research extensions are reviewed and might serve as a useful base for developing decision support systems (DSS) that will contribute project managers in planning and controlling under uncertain project environments. Expand
A goal-oriented, business intelligence-supported decision-making methodology
TLDR
This research presents a goal-oriented, business intelligence-supported methodology for decision making that allows enterprises to begin with limited data, discover required data to build their models, capture stakeholders goals, and model threats, opportunities, and their impact. Expand
Developmental Issues of Web-based Decision Support System
Decision Support Systems (DSS) are computer programs that aid users in a problem solving or decision-making environment. DSS contains decision making information and other related data that may be ofExpand

Decision support system effectiveness: a review and an empirical test
TLDR
Examination of the effectiveness of DSS-aided decision makers relative to decision makers without a DSS over an eight-week period found the groups with access to the DSS made significantly more effective decisions in the business simulation game than their non-DSS counterparts. Expand
The Influences of User Characteristics on Performance in a Logistics DSS Application
TLDR
It is found that intuition and effort are associated with decision-making performance and decision makers who highly value disaggregated data provided by the DSS tend to perform poorly. Expand
Foundations of Decision Support Systems
TLDR
From these a classification of decision support systems (DSS) is developed: systems studied include a project management (PERT) package, a statistical package and a corporate planning system. Expand
Past, present, and future of decision support technology
TLDR
The evolution of DSS technologies and issues related to DSS definition, application, and impact are discussed, and four powerful decision support tools, including data warehouses, OLAP, data mining, and Web-based DSS are presented. Expand
Computer-Aided Deliberation: Model Management and Group Decision Support: Special Focus Article
TLDR
The paper highlights principles of group process as an important component of group activities in planning and policy making and findings of the group decision support system (GDSS) research are discussed in terms of anonymity of participation, facility design and need for multiple public screens. Expand
A foundation for the study of group decision support systems
TLDR
A conceptual overview of GDSS based on an information-exchange perspective of decision making is presented, and a multi-dimensional taxonomy of systems is proposed as an organizing framework for research in the area. Expand
A Framework for the Development of Decision Support Systems
TLDR
A descriptive model is developed to assess the performance objectives and the capabilities of a DSS as viewed by three of the major participants in their continued development and use. Expand
A DSS for multiple criteria decision analysis with imprecisely specified trade-offs
TLDR
The paper describes a decision support system (DSS) for multiple criteria decision analysis (MCDA) that helps the user to identify candidate solutions from a finite set of decision alternatives and can be used in an interactive decision process. Expand
Impacts of problem structure and computerized decision aids on decision attitudes and behaviors
TLDR
Results indicate computerized decision aid users had positive attitudes toward the aid and, compared to a group of non-users, considered fewer alternatives, took more time making decisions, and used more analytical tools. Expand
