Editorial Reviews


From the reviews: “This is a substantial work … utilizing over 130 researchers or practitioners contributing across 71 chapters. … Each of the 71 chapters is an independent article on … Decision Support Systems (DSS). … usefully employed in support of DSS teaching and research across a range of undergraduate or post-graduate academic programmes. … Overall, a distinctive and worthwhile addition to DSS resources.” (B. Hollocks, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 60 (9), 2009) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Decision support systems have experienced a marked increase in attention and importance over the past 25 years. The aim of this book is to survey the decision support system (DSS) field – covering both developed territory and emergent frontiers. It will give the reader a clear understanding of fundamental DSS concepts, methods, technologies, trends, and issues. It will serve as a basic reference work for DSS research, practice, and instruction. To achieve these goals, the book has been designed according to a ten-part structure, divided in two volumes with chapters authored by well-known, well-versed scholars and practitioners from the DSS community.
