DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Code

H04

Brief Description

Most organizations today are in the process of designing, developing and implementing numerous information technology (IT) based systems to support employees in their decision-making tasks. A decision support system (DSS) is a computer system that typically encompasses mathematical models informational databases and a user interface to support managers and/or groups of interest with rational decision making. A DSS differs from a traditional information system (IS) or management information system (MIS) in that it not only provides the user with information as does an IS or MIS, but it also provides answers to user queries, through its modeling component. In essence a DSS is a computer system that helps managers make rational decisions. Successfully achieving this objective requires an understanding not only of the hardware, software and design aspects of such a Decision Support System (DSS), or of the mathematical and statistical models that are fundamental to a DSS's claim of superior decisions, but also of human decision-making and the organizational context within which decisions are made.

The decision support systems course focuses on providing to the students the main elements of design, implementation and use of computerized systems that support individual or organizational decisions. This course is intended to develop an appreciation of the nature of managerial business decision making as well as a working knowledge of Decision Support Systems (DSS) for facilitating the process of semi-structured decision making. Issues associated with the development of these systems are introduced, along with some of the underlying mathematical modeling techniques that provide DSS with a problem solving capability.
