OPTRANS is a DSS Generator or DSS shell. The notion of DSS will not be described here, for this notion we refer the reader to Scott Morton [1971], Klein and Tixier [1971] and to Bonczek, Holsapple and Whinston [1984] for a very good and more recent survey of developments in the field. The structure of OPTRANS was described in some detail in Klein and Manteau [1983], we shall just recall it here. The structure of OPTRANS is represented in Figure 1. It is a layered structure with a nucleus and several specialized subsystems. The nucleus is to be used in the generation of any DSS, the other subsystems can be added according to the problem area.
