TOUCHSTONE: A Criteria Development Program for Group Decision Support Systems.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Group decision making utilizing the Delphi method can be a time-consuming and difficult procedure, especially when the required group membership is separated by great distances. This study designs and implements an automated group decision support system GDSS which may be employed by a single computer or a networking system. This particular model is text-based as opposed to mathematical-based, a radical departure from the GDSS models currently in vogue. This program, TouchStone, successfully translates the Delphi method of criteria development to the computer. It is implemented in Turbo Pascal for the IBM-PC.
