 Decision support system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Decision support systems are a class of computer-based information systems or knowledge based systems that, in very different manner, support decision making activities.
Supporting a decision means supporting this choice by supporting the estimation, the evaluation and/or the comparison and choice.
For Keen and Scott Morton (1978), a DSS couples the intellectual resources of individuals with the capabilities of the computer to improve the quality of decisions ("DSS are computer-based support for management decision makers who are dealing with semi-structured problems").

 decision support system - Ultrawideband Planet
DSS applications are systems and subsystems that help people make decisions based on data that is culled from a wide range of sources.
The vendor can use a DSS to gather information from its own resources (using a tool such as OLAP) to determine if the company has the ability or potential ability to expand its business and also from external resources, such as industry data, to determine if there is indeed a demand to meet.
DSS applications are not single information resources, such as a database or a program that graphically represents sales figures, but the combination of integrated resources working together.

 The Environmental Decision Support System (EDSS)
The Environmental Decision Support System (EDSS) is problem solving environment that provides an advanced modeling and analysis system for environmental scientists, engineers, policy makers, and educators.
The last domain involves modeling the decision process itself and thereby providing the structure and support to enable policy makers to make timely, balanced decisions that are consistent with what we know about the environment.
Decision makers need emissions models with high performance and fast turnaround, so that they can gain insight into the cause-and-effect relationships involved in atmospheric air pollution issues, and so that they can investigate the effectiveness of proposed controls.
