This is a book about how management and control decisions are made by persons who collaborate and possibly use the support of an information system. The decision is the result of human conscious activities aiming at choosing a course of action for attaining a certain objective (or a set of objectives). The act of collaboration implies that several entities who work together and share responsibilities to jointly plan, implement and evaluate a program of activities to achieve the common goals. The book is intended to present a balanced view of the domain to include both well-established concepts and a selection of new results in the domains of methods and key technologies. It is meant to answer several questions, such as: a) “How are evolving the business models towards the ever more collaborative schemes?”; b) “What is the role of the decision-maker in the new context?” c) “What are the basic attributes and trends in the domain of decision-supporting information systems?”; d) “Which are the basic methods to aggregate the individual preferences?” e)“What is the impact of modern information and communication technologies on the design and usage of decision support systems for groups of people?”.

The information age has enabled unprecedented levels of data to be collected and stored. At the same time, society and organizations have become increasingly complex. Consequently, decisions in many facets have become increasingly complex but have the potential to be better informed. Technologies for Supporting Reasoning Communities and Collaborative Decision Making: Cooperative Approaches includes chapters from diverse fields of enquiry including decision science, political science, argumentation, knowledge management, cognitive psychology and business intelligence. Each chapter illustrates a perspective on group reasoning that ultimately aims to lead to a greater understanding of reasoning communities and inform technological developments.

Decision-making has evolved recently thanks to the introductionof information and communication technologies in manyorganizations, which has led to new kinds of decision-makingprocesses, called “collaborative decision-making”, atthe organizational and cognitive levels. This book looks at thedevelopment of the decision-making process in organizations.Decision-aiding and its paradigm of problem solving are defined,showing how decision-makers now need to work in a cooperative way.Definitions of cooperation and associated concepts such ascollaboration and coordination are given and a framework ofcooperative decision support systems is presented, includingintelligent DSS, cooperative knowledge-based systems, workflow,group support systems, collaborative engineering, integrating witha collaborative decision-making model in part or being part ofglobal projects. Several models and experimental studies are alsoincluded showing that these new processes have to be supported bynew types of tools, several of which are described in order tocalculate or simulate solutions or global solutions fordecision-making modification. Definitions and new trends for thesemodels are given, along with types of systems. Contents 1. Alteration of Decision-Making Processes inOrganizations. 2. New Decision-Making Processes. 3. The Need to Cooperate. 4. Cooperative Decision-Making. 5. Activity Support Systems. 6. Cooperative Decision Support Systems: CDSSS.

This publication presents the latest innovations and achievements of academic communities on Decision Support Systems (DSS). These advances include theory systems, computer-aided methods, algorithms, techniques and applications related to supporting decision making. The aim is to develop approaches for applying information systems technology to increase the effectiveness of decision making in situations where the computer system can support and enhance human judgments in the performance of tasks that have elements which cannot be specified in advance. Also it is intended to improve ways of synthesizing and applying relevant work from resource disciplines to practical implementation of systems that enhance decision support capability.The resource disciplines include: information technology, artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, decision theory, organizational theory, operations research and modeling. Researchers come from the Operational Research area but also from Decision Theory, Multicriteria Decision Making methodologies, Fuzzy sets and modeling tools. Based on the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies in organizations, the decisional process is evolving from a mono actor to a multi actor situation in which cooperation is a way to make the decision.

Theoretically, the term "script" appears to be rather ill-defined. This book clarifies the use of the term "script" in education. It approaches the term from at least three perspectives: cognitive psychology perspective, computer science perspective, and an educational perspective. The book provides learners with scripts that support them both in communication/coordination and in higher-order learning.

Many decisions in domains such as production, finance, logistics, planning, and economics, can be supported by optimization models. However, decision makers are often intimidated by the mathematical formalism of the corresponding model management tools and tend to keep their distance from them. Moreover, when these optimization models are encapsulated into user-friendly systems, this often leads to ad hoc software difficult to extend and to maintain. Finally, most of the existing applications poorly support the cooperative nature of decisions involving several actors.his book describes the theoretical foundations and the architectural details of the open source system named Dicodess, which precisely tries to solve these problems by implementing a new vision for distributed decision support systems. First, systems based on Dicodess hide the optimization models and their dry formalism behind a generic, reusable user friendly user interface. Decision makers can then perform complex what-if analysis without writing a single line of model code. Then, systems based on Dicodess rely on an innovative distributed architecture allowing several actors to dynamically get together in autonomous network groupings called federations, on a LAN or WLAN, to solve problems without being hampered by technical issues.This book is for anyone interested in learning and effectively and successfully applying model-driven decision support systems, including professors and students in DSS, Operations Research, Management Information Systems, and Operations Management, researchers active in the DSS community, and practitioners involved in the development of DSS.

Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) is rapidly expanding the horizons of research on the relations between humans and computers. Presented in this book is a selection of studies which, between them, define and discuss many fundamental issues in CSCW. The book offers an overview of research alongside some new contributions which address key issues in the field and which have not previously been published. Readers with many different backgrounds will find this book of interest, including, but not confined to: - computer scientists: particularly those concerned with networks, messaging services and distributed systems; - social scientists: many sociologists and anthropologists have contributed to CSCW research and interest in the design of computing technologies is increasing in the social sciences generally; - psychologists, cognitive scientists, cognitive ergonomists and students of HCI: these researchers may see CSCW as an important extension to HCI, and Artificial Intelligence workers may see important parallels between CSCW and issues in Distributed AI; - educators and advanced students: a number of specialist undergraduate and masters level courses involving CSCW are beginning to start up in Europe and the USA; it is hoped that this book could serve as a resource for teaching; - workers and users in general: as this book contains accounts of the systems being developed to support the kinds of work that many people will be doing in the future, it can serve to help future users and workers know what to expect and plan how they might best exploit or resist these developments.

The design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams using multiple commercial and non-commercial engineering tools such as CAD tools, modeling, simulation and optimization software, engineering databases, and knowledge-based systems. Individuals or individual groups of multidisciplinary design teams usually work in parallel and separately with various engineering tools, which are located on different sites, often for quite a long time. At any moment, individual members may be working on different versions of a design or viewing the design from various perspectives, at different levels of detail. In order to meet these requirements, it is necessary to have effective and efficient collaborative design environments. These environments should not only automate individual tasks, in the manner of traditional computer-aided engineering tools, but also enable individual members to share information, collaborate and coordinate their activities within the context of a design project. CSCW (computer-supported cooperative work) in design is concerned with the development of such environments.
