ABSTRACT


Introducing Complex Decision Models to the Decision Maker with Computer Software – The Profile Distance Method (PDM)

Edward Bernroider, Nikolaus Obwegeser, Volker Stix


In this paper we demonstrate how the profile distance method was transformed into a software environment enabling the decision maker to utilize a complex decision making tool without any advanced knowledge of the underlying mathematical and technical features. We present theoretical and technical aspects as well as contextual and usage related information from the viewpoint of the decision maker. Preliminary empirical results suggest that the developed software component is effective in terms of platform independence, usability and intuitive interface design. The data showed a good rating for usefulness, which, however, was targeted as the main goal for further development.
