A decision support system (DSS) is an interactive, user-friendly managementlevel computer system that combines data and sophisticated analytical

models and tools to support semi-structured and unstructured decision making. A DSS does not make decisions; rather it is a powerful tool that is used to support decision-making. The components of a DSS are: The DSS database: A collection of data from a number of applications or groups The DSS software system: Contains the software tools that are used for analyzing the data, including OLAP tools, datamining tools, or a collection of mathematical or analytical models The user interface: Controls the interaction between the users of the system and the DSS Decision support system A decision support system ( DSS ) is a computer-based information system that supportsbusiness or organizational decisionmaking activities. DSSs serve the management, operations,and planning levels of an organization and help to make decisions, which may be rapidlychanging and not easily specified in advance.DSSs include knowledge-based systems. A properly designed DSS is an interactive software-based system intended to help decision makers compile useful information from a combinationof raw data, documents, personal knowledge, or business models to identify and solve problemsand make decisions.Typical information that a decision support application might gather and present are: y inventories of information assets (including legacy and relational data sources, cubes,data warehouses, and data marts), y comparative sales figures between one period and the next, y P rojected revenue figures based on product sales assumptions

A decision support system (DSS) is a computer-based information system that supports business or organizational decision-making activities. DSSs serve the management, operations, and planning levels of an organization and help to make decisions, which may be rapidly changing and not easily specified in advance.

DSSs include knowledge-based systems. A properly designed DSS is an interactive softwarebased system intended to help decision makers compile useful information from a combination of raw data, documents, personal knowledge, or business models to identify and solve problems and make decisions.

Typical information that a decision support application might gather and present are:

* inventories of information assets (including legacy and relational data sources, cubes, data warehouses, and data marts), * comparative sales figures between one period and the next, * projected revenue figures based on product sales assumptions.

Development Frameworks DSS systems are not entirely different from other systems and require a structured approach.Such a framework includes people, technology, and the development approach.DSS technology levels (of hardware and software) may include: 1. The actual application that will be used by the user. This is the part of the application that allowsthe decision maker to make decisions in a particular problem area. The user can act upon thatparticular problem.2. Generator contains Hardware/software environment that allows people to easily developspecific DSS applications. This level makes use of case tools or systems such as Crystal, AIMMS,and think.3. Tools include lower level hardware/software. DSS generators including special languages,function libraries and linking modules An iterative developmental approach allows for the DSS to be changed and redesigned at variousintervals. Once the system is designed, it will need to be tested and revised for the desiredoutcom
