IS 420 - Decision Support Systems


The course presents characteristics of Decision Support Systems, computer-based information systems that attempt to meet the information needs of management by stimulating a person/machine interaction. Central to the course is a focus on DSS analysis, design, and building techniques, which are then applied to a student project. Additional topics include decision making, user-driven computing, DSS languages, organizational issues and implications of artificial intelligence. Selections from the current DSS literature will be discussed and evaluated. A course project is required.
