Written by four experts in modelling, database management, and information systems, this book provides step-by-step guidance to building an organizational decision support system (ODSS). An ODSS is an interactive, computer-based system that helps decision-makers throughout an organization utilize data and mathematical models in making their decisions. The book deals with building an ODSS from the basic needs assessment and project formation through the conceptual design, system implementation, maintenance, and updating. It also addresses the technical issues and political aspects of developing the system.
