Decision-making support systems (DMSS) are specialized computer-based information systems designed to support some, several or all phases of the decision-making process (Forgionne et al., 2000). They have the stand-alone or integrated capabilities of decision support systems (DSS), executive information systems (EIS) and expert systems/knowledge based systems (ES/KBS). Individual EIS, DSS, and ES/KBS, or pair-integrated combinations of these systems, have yielded substantial benefits for decision makers in real applications.
