The essence of decision-aiding software is that it consists of various forms of microcomputer programming designed to enable users to process (1) a set of 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. The book consists of 14 well-organized chapters divided into six parts covering: (1) comparisons across software packages; (2) approaches based on management science/operations research; (3) spreadsheet-based software; (4) expert systems software; (5) group decision-making; and (6) increased utilization.
