About the Edition

As the popularity and use of the World Wide Web (the Web) increases daily, many technologies and applications that were initially developed and used as stand alone tools are migrating towards the Web. Decision support technologies are examples of applications that traditionally have been developed as stand alone systems. One feature common to all decision support systems is that they require user input to produce results. However, due to some inherent limitations with the Web, some modifications must be made to allow users to interact with these technologies. Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programs, or scripts, provide Web servers the capability to produce dynamic documents and maintain user information or state. With CGl scripts, developers can capture user entered data access external applications to process the data, and return the results. Using CGI scripts to interface with database applications gives Web servers the ability to maintain state by tracking user data, information, and preferences. This thesis implements a Windows spreadsheet based decision support system (DSS) designed to optimize radar coverage of tactical aircraft. Using Delphi to write CGI scripts, the Web based DSS allows the user to enter data to run a new problem, save input and output data, and retrieve the saved data at a later time.

A decision support system (DSS) is an information system that supports business or organizational decision-making activities. DSSs serve the management, operations and planning levels of an organization (usually mid and higher management) and help people make decisions about problems that may be rapidly changing and not easily specified in advance—i.e. unstructured and semi-structured.

There are a number of Decision Support Systems. These can be categorized into five types: Communication-driven DSS Most communications-driven DSSs are targetted at internal teams, including partners. Its purpose are to help conduct a meeting, or for users to collaborate. The most common technology used to deploy the DSS is a web or client server. wide decision support systems, managers must understand the possibili-ties and be involved in designing the systems. For many reasons, all managers need to understand the upside benefi ts and the downside risks of building a specifi c decision support capability. Decision support systems can solve problems and create new problems.

World-Wide Web technologies have rapidly transformed the entire design, development and implementation process for all types of Decision Support Systems. In particular, Web technologies have provided a new media for sharing information about decision support and a new means of delivering decision support capabilities.

the World-Wide Web was recognized by a number of software developers and academics as a serious platform for implementing Decision Support Systems (cf., Power, a). In a series of papers were presented on using the Web and Internet for decision support at the 3rd International.

Decision support systems differ, and technology can support a wide range of decision-making tasks. There are two fundamental premises associated with computerized decision support. First, computers and information technology can help people make important decisions.

The majority of decision support systems (DSS) are contained in-house with private developers and users, or on researchers stand-alone computers and academic journals. Current World Wide Web technologies provide the appropriate means for large-scale implementation and continued development of DSS for the architectural, engineering, and.

(source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary An in-depth examination of the tools and techniques needed to design and implement a decision support system (DSS) in an organization. The work covers modeling and simulation, and explains how a DSS can help managers make their decisions and indicates how the DSS fits in the overall management information.

Decision Support Systems have evolved over the past three decades from simple model-oriented systems to advanced multi-function entities. During the ’s, most Decision Support Systems were fairly based on powerful (and expensive) mainframe computers which.

A Decision Support System (DSS) is a computerbased information system developed to support organizational decision making in their semistructured tasks [3] [4]. In the other way it is defined as. The World-Wide Web is where the action is in developing Enterprise-Wide and Inter-Organizational Decision Support Systems.

When vendors propose a Web-Based DSS they are referring to a computerized system that delivers decision support information or decision support tools to a manager, business analyst, or customer using a "thin-client" Web.
