Towards Interactive CLP – Based and Project Driven Oriented DSS Design
A unified framework standing behind of a methodology aimed at object oriented decision support system (DSS) design is considered. First of all the consistency of the assumed knowledge bases describing an object (enterprise) and requests (standard options supporting a decision maker), respectively are examined. Then the knowledge base representation is transformed into representation of so called constraint satisfaction problem (CSP). Possible ways of the CSP decomposition as well as possibility of different programming languages application lead then to a problem aimed at searching for a distribution strategy allowing one to interact in an on-line model. The results obtained are implemented in a software package supporting production flow planning in the SMEs. Illustrative example of the ILOG-based software application is provided. Experiments carried out by means of the package have been executed in Archimedes S.A., a hydraulic and pneumatic equipment manufacturer.
