A major omission in DSS scholarship is the poor identification of the clients and users of the various DSS applications that are the focus of investigation.
The analysis found that DSS publication has been falling steadily since its peak in 1994 and the current publication rate is at early 1990s levels.
Other findings include that personal DSS and group support systems dominate research activity and data warehousing is the least published type of DSS.
The Plum Print next to each article shows the relative activity in each of these categories of metrics: Captures, Mentions, Social Media and Citations.
A decision support system (DSS) is a computerized program used to support determinations, judgments, and courses of action in an organization or a business.
Examples of research topics that would be appropriate for include the following:1. principles, concepts, and theories of enhanced decision making; formal languages and research methods enabling improvements in decision making. methods, tools, and techniques for developing thefunctional aspects of enhanced decision making; solver, model, and/or data management in DSSs; rule formulation and management in DSSs; DSS development and use in computer supported cooperative work, negotiation, research and product.3. methods, tools, and techniques for designing and developing DSS interfaces; development, management, and presentation of knowledge in a DSS; coordination of a DSS's interface with its functionality. DSS Implementation - experiences in DSS development and utilization; DSS management and updating; DSS instruction/training. evaluation metrics and processes; DSS impact on decision makers, organizational processes and performance.
It is important that theory validation be carefully addressed. A critical consideration must be how specific experiences provide more general implications. Hide full Aims & Scope Below is a recent list of 2018—2019 articles that have had the most social media attention.A DSS sifts through and analyzes massive amounts of data, compiling comprehensive information that can be used to solve problems and in decision-making.A decision support system gathers and analyzes data, synthesizing it to produce comprehensive information reports.For example, the DSS can generate information and output its information graphically, as in a bar chart that represents projected revenue or as a written report.As technology continues to advance, data analysis is no longer limited to large, bulky mainframe computers.At the very least, they allow human users to make more informed decisions at a quicker pace.The DSS can be employed by operations management and other planning departments in an organization to compile information and data and to synthesize it into actionable intelligence.In this way, as an informational application, a DSS differs from an ordinary operations application, whose function is just to collect data.The DSS can either be completely computerized or powered by humans. The ideal systems analyze information and actually make decisions for the user.Manuscripts may draw from diverse methods and methodologies, including those from decision theory, economics, econometrics, statistics, computer supported cooperative work, data base management, linguistics, management science, mathematical modeling, operations management, cognitive science, psychology, user interface management, and others.However, a manuscript focused on direct contributions to any of these related areas should be submitted to an outlet appropriate to the specific area.
