Decision Support Systems and Multiple-Criteria Optimization

  • A. Lewandowski
Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 320)

Abstract

The concept of a decision support system, though quite widely used and developed in applied research, is by no means well defined. However, without attempting to give a restrictive definition it is necessary to review main functions and various types of decision support systems.
