1+n work bette than 1 A Customer GDSS is quite good technology as a teaching tool. Specially for those type of student who feel shy to express their view in class room. Everybody is able to get benefit from the group reaction and will learn fast.
This book also reports some empirical evaluations of Co-oP and expands the proposed approach to non-cooperation and organizational decision-making.. From a Multiple Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) viewpoint, this book supports the integrated use of various MCDM methods to help a GDSS (i) support a wide range of decision situations, (ii) attenuate the difficulty of information search, (iii) allow division of decision-making tasks, and (iv) permit consensus seeking analysis. Also, process-driven GDSS are able to deal with the unpredictable nature of group problems since collective decision processes have been shown to be the only elements in a GDSS that are (i) stable enough to fit into most collective problems, (ii) reasonably structurable to be implementable, and (iii) sufficiently controllable to guarantee appropriate use. This book proposes an approach to analyzing, designing and implementing Group Decision Support Systems (GDSS). It contains a set of MCDM methods, techniques of aggregation of preferences, and a consensus seeking algorithm to support negotiation. Co-oP runs on a network of individual workstations. Electronic communication among group members is monitored by a group norm filter which is adaptable to a large number of collective decision situations. The experience gained in developing a concrete system, Co-oP, suggests that GDS
