decision support system

= DSS
A computer system specifically designed to assist managers in making unstructured decisions, i.e. the nature of the problem requiring a decision is not known in advance. A language subsystem has to be included in the DSS to allow managers to communicate easily with the system. A problem processing subsystem, such as a spreadsheet, is also required. Typically, a system of this type has a store of internal data and is able to access external data.
