A decision support system (DSS) is an intelligent information system that uses data, models it, processes or analyzes it using problem-specific methodologies, and assists the user in the decision-making process through a graphical user interface (GUI). This is a comprehensive book that describes how to build decision support systems using the Excel spreadsheet framework and the VBA programming language. Risk Solver Platform for Education, an Excel Add-In, is used for optimization and simulation. This book illustrates complete decision support development applications through several case studies arising in operations research, industrial engineering, management, and business administration.
