Chapter 10.1
 A decision support system is an interactive
information system that supports the decision-making
process through the presentation of information
designed specifically for the decision maker’s problemsolving approach and application needs. It does not
make a decision for the user.
 A decision support system will fit in MRE is their
Training and Management Systems Department.

 Who would benefit from the dss system?
 The employees that may benefit from the decision
support system are Daniel Hill(Engineering Systems
Division), Warren F. Torrey(President & Chief
Executive Officer), and Snowden Evans (Director of
Training and Management systems) because
internally, their goals are to promote innovative ideas
in all of their departments. The engineering and
medical consulting industries are very competitive.
Technology and methods are changing rapidly. They
need to be on top of it.

 Three semi-structured, multi-criteria decisions that require
computer and human judgment and are being made in the
Management Systems and Training Unit are interdepartment communication within Engineering Systems,
client support, and the reporting of hours worked on a
specific task in a timely fashion in the training department.
 One area that would benefit from the dss is the client
support area. Clients want to know the status of a project,
the decisions that were implemented in created the project
and what the outcome is going to be and presented. All this
information should be available for a client as soon as the
training unit submits all the requests of the client sand
logs in into their system.
