Decision Support Case Studies


This DSSResources.COM page indexes case examples of various types of computerized
Decision Support Systems, decision automation systems and special decision support studies
that use computerized analyses. Some of the cases are based upon field research, but many
have been provided by software vendors. We have tried to confirm and verify the information
in vendor supplied cases. We are always looking for detailed vendor provided cases to publish
and opportunities for field research. Please contact Daniel J. Power,
power@dssresources.com, with your cases.
