Abstract

Many applications of operations research are used to support managers in making intelligent decisions. Designing of reliable and effective decision making is a prerequisite for effectiveness of business intelligence. In the current paper, a Web-based framework of group decision support application is proposed. It uses multi-attribute decision making approach that is based on combinatorial optimization. The described modeling approach takes into account weightings of criteria of different decision makers and their evaluations for each alternative. A single criterion mixed integer optimization task is formulated whose solution defines an optimal alternative. The proposed framework of Web-based application for group decision support implements XHTML, JavaScript, XML, AJAX technology and mixed-integer programming optimization modules. The described combinatorial optimization approach and Web-based framework are tested and results show their applicability for group decision making.Many applications of operations research are used to support managers in making intelligent decisions.
