OPIM-258 Decision Support Systems
Spring for 2005-2006
The study of decision-making has become increasingly important as agendas (personal, organizational, governmental, etc.) have shifted toward global perspectives, shorter time frames, and greater data availability. This course provides the capstone for the Operations and Information Management major but is open to all majors. The purpose of the course is to study advanced topics in decision support systems--a broad term used for technology designed to enhance effective decision making. Topics will cover human decision processes, problem identification and formulation, interface design, and systems implementation. The Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming language within Microsoft Excel will be the primary tool for basic systems development and will be taught through a series of lab sessions (no prior programming knowledge required). Formerly offered as MGMT 258.
