  journal={Inf. Resour. Manag. J.},
Decision support technology, expert systems, executives information systems, and artificial neural networks have been reported to be useful tools to enhance the performance of managers as they helped them to gain more knowledge, experiences, and expertise and consequently enhance the quality of the decision making. They can also be used as a training tool to transfer the knowledge of the expert to middle and top management and thus improve the performance of new employees. This communication…

The investigation sets out to reveal the changing landscape of expertise in supporting decision-making using technology and sheds light on the new role that experts will play in organizational decision-makes, showing significant changes in how decision- making is being made.

A Comparison of Implementation Resistance Factors for DMSS Versus Other Information Systems

This work has compared decision-making support systems DMSS resistance factors with those of other CBIS to better understand these factors and their impact on DMSS implementation.

Evaluation of Expert Systems: The Application of a Reference Model to the Usability Parameter

An expert systems' performance evaluation model is presented, which will then be used to evaluate an existing expert system as a way of testing its applicability and determines if its performance satisfies its users and meets the organisation's strategic goals.

Psychological Aspects of the Transfer of Expert Systems Into Application

A study investigates variables relating to an intention to use an ES and acceptance of ES advice, and indicates that intent to use a ES andaccept of the advice provided by the systems relate to different sets of variables.

An Information Systems Design Theory for an Expert System for Training

Results show that the ISDT led to a useful purposely-developed application for enhancing the training of workers who have limited education but need to know about a very specific and complex field where the availability of trainers is limited.

Expert Systems Evaluation Proposal

A methodology for addressing the problem of Expert System evaluation and an evaluation model is proposed with the following main criteria: Usability; impact of the system in the behaviour and decisions of the user; Impact of the quality of the information provided to the users; financial impact; usefulness.


The aim of this research is to proposed Decision Support System Framework particularly for quantity surveying consultants to improve the effectiveness of the decision making process.

The study conclusions indicate that the integrating DEA/BPN model set up of this paper can evaluate LSE and provide the improving direction and method for the enterprise or department of ineffective DEA in system, and further forecast prospect through training formal fingers.

Replanting the Answer Garden - Cultivating Expertise through Decision Support Technology

Examination of expert systems, group decision support systems, and collective intelligence tools are presented to illustrate how expertise needed in organizational decision-making is changing and may not reside within the traditional organizational boundaries.

The Development Manager's Advisory System: A Knowledge-Based DSS Tool for Project Assessment*

The design, development, and implementation of a knowledge-based decision support system to support a product development manager's decision concerning full-scale development of a new product is described.

Task-Technology Fit and Individual Performance

This research highlights the importance of the fit between technologies and users' tasks in achieving individual performance impacts from information technology and suggests that task-technology fit when decomposed into its more detailed components, could be the basis for a strong diagnostic tool to evaluate whether information systems and services in a given organization are meeting user needs.

Expert support systems: integrating AI technologies

Sophisticated software has been developed that will assist managers in their decision- making processes and also enable computers to think like human experts.

An experimental investigation of the effects of artificial intelligence systems on the training of novice auditors

The results suggested that the effect of task‐technology fit on accuracy in solving problems was marginal for case‐based reasoning with unstructured tasks, and the task‐ technology fit marginally increased users’ certainty of the correctness of their solutions.
