Public Administration and Decision-Aiding Software: Improving Procedure and Substance

Synopsis

This contributed volume offers a summary of the latest ideas and applications concerning decision-making software, as applied to administrative decision-making and public policy-making. Nagel defines the essence of decision-aiding software to be software that is designed to enable users to "process a set of (1) goals to be achieved, (2) alternatives available for achieving them, and (3) relations between goals and alternatives in order to choose the best alternative, combination, allocation, or predictive decision-rule."
