DSS MIDA: Lessons from Experience in Development and Application in the Chemical Industry
Paper aimed at documenting a personal view of the subject as given by author in Udine Summer School, presents his experience gained from development and extensive application of a DSS MIDA — Multiobjective Interactive Decision Aid. Using a particular DSS presented in its broader environment of applications namely in the Integrated Development Programming (IDP), an attempt is made to draw observations from identification, modeling and structuring of the particular DSS in order to share more generally applicable experience. This concerns counter-intuitive theoretical solution applied in decomposition of the multiobjective dynamic decision problem of industrial development. Lessons from variety of applications cathegorized depending on the environment, scope and relation to the user are summarized in order to show some more general experience. Hopefully, a kind of practically useful philosophy of DSS development and application is presented through the assumed scope.
