About the Edition

The explosive growth of the World Wide Web creates new opportunities for the development and deployment of Decision Support Systems. No longer restricted by machine-specific limitations, Web-based Decision Support Systems (DSS) provide global access to widely diversified and geographically dispersed users through sharing of data, models, algorithms, and modeling environments. This thesis examines the design and development processes involved in the creation of a Web-based DSS. The Recycling Decision Support System utilizes a rapid prototype and refinement process to create a Web-based system focusing on supporting ordinary people and industrial users in making good decisions for recycling and disposal of household and industrial waste. Through abstraction of details from the specific Web-based DSS design, a generalized framework for supporting decision-making via the WWW is built which supports functionality in education, queries, and analysis of complex problems. An important aspect of this research is the development of a new architecture which conforms to the complexities specific to Web-based Decision Support Systems. Prompted by the additional interactions required for WWW connectivity, this architecture incorporates agents for negotiating transactions between the functional components of a standard DSS.

The decision support system allows taking into account the key factors that determine the “attractiveness” of real estate investments in competitive urban contexts. This study proposes an integrated complex evaluation model that is able to map out and encapsulate the multidimensional spectrum of factors that shape the attractiveness of Cited by: 7. In order to insure that a decision support system meets the needs of the user, it is necessary to understand the environment in which the DSS operates and the factors that make up the environment. The volume examines data warehouses, intelligent software agents and DSS system development, as well as an introduction to decision support systems, decision in the organization, modeling decision processes, group decision support and groupware technologies, executive information systems, expert systems and artificial intelligence, knowledge Cited by: The role of a decision support system is to allow the decision maker to deal with assumptions.” The features of DSS in this article which would be valuable for sustainability planning and control have also been noted by Keen and Scott-Morton (): “Decision Support Systems couple the intellectual resources of individuals with the Cited by:

Sustainability is becoming an increasing issue for decision-makers and scholars worldwide and many managers understand the significance of the strategic approach of corporate sustainability. However, they face difficulties in aligning sustainable development and strategic management as . 23 rows  Decision support systems (DSS) have evolved over the past four decades from theoretical . 1. Introduction. Waste recycling has always been a major environmental issue of concern to all countries. Compared with e-waste, which are the electrical or electronic equipment that is discarded and no longer used, with serious pollution and high recycling value, it has been difficult for the recycling of waste paper to draw attention because the waste paper itself is relatively clean and the Author: Manzhi Liu, Shuai Tan, Mengya Zhang, Gang He, Zhizhi Chen, Zhiwei Fu, Changjin Luan.   This compact and easy-to-read book describes in detail the basic principles of Decision Support Systems (DSS). The book also gives a comprehensive account of the various models used in decision making process, the many facets of DSS, and explains how they are implemented. Further, it discusses the significance of business reengineering, the role of client-server technology, Internet and Reviews: 1.

Decision Making and Recycling 4 Speedway, Mail Code C Austin, TX () ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITY Purpose: To explore what sustainability practices (including recycling) that students in the class are already doing. Materials: Sustainability Bingo, pens Safety Information: N/A Procedure: Pass out students 10 minutes to try and get as .   Abstract. This work presents a decision support system for route planning of vehicles performing waste collection for recycling. We propose a prototype system that includes three modules: route optimization, waste generation prediction, and multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA).Cited by: 4. Waste Disposal and Recycling For many years direct recycling by producers of surplus and defective materials constituted the main form of recycling. However, indirect recycling, the recycling of materials after their use by consumers, became the focus of activity in the s. For some time, most solid waste has been deposited in landfills or. @article{osti_, title = {A prototype knowledge-based decision support system for industrial waste management.
