Abstract : A custom decision support system is the preferred solution for most mission-critical, information-intensive tasks throughout industry. Until recently, constructing such custom systems was prohibitively time consuming and error-prone. Tools such as Marble's Decision Builder promise to reduce the development time and improve the effectiveness of custom decision aids. This White Paper highlights Decision Builder's inferencing technology, open architecture, graphic tools, and network orientation. It also suggests a new vision for computer-based decision aids across industries in light of Decision Builder and Marble's Workgroup Computing Paradigm.
